The Witch

When I was walking about behind the river1
I encountered a witch
I encountered a witch
When I was walking about behind the river
 
She gave me a kiss
She gave me a kiss on the lips
She gave me a kiss on the lips
She gave me a kiss
 
Now here comes the witch
She'll take me to the river
She wants to deceive me
So she can turn me into a monkey
 
Hide boy
Hide young girl
Here comes a witch
Now here she comes flying
 
Hide boy
Hide, hide
Here comes the witch
She'll turn you into an iguana
 
One night as I was going into the cornfield
I encountered a woman
I encountered a woman
One night as I was going into the cornfield
 
She was splitting a pumpkin
But she was the witch
But she was the witch
She was splitting a pumpkin
 
Now here comes the witch
She'll take me far away
She wants to deceive me
So she can turn me into a pumpkin
 
Hide boy...
 
A witch grabbed me
She's sucking my navel
She's sucking my navel
A witch grabbed me
 
Now she's feeding2 me
Behind my house
Behind my house
Now she's feeding me
 
Now here comes the witch
She'll take me up into the mountain
She wants to deceive me
So she can turn me into a toad.
 
Hide boy...

Author's comments:

The translation (Zapotec to Spanish, I translated it from Spanish to English) comes from the link I put in the "source", they are the scans of the booklet that comes with the CD.
