El Mio Xuan

El mio Xuan miróme
díxome: galana
que guapina tas.
Yo dixe-y: Xuanucu
nun tengo contigo
ganes de falar.
Entós el mio Xuan
comenzóme a afalagar
con una vara d'ablanu
¡Xesús que burru ye Xuan!
Yo, toa llorosa
fuia a casa mio suegra
que cerquina ta.
Dixomes la vieya:
nun tomes asina
les coses de Xuan,
porque'l mio Xuan ye
tan burru que nun lu hai más
tan vagu que nun trabaya
nin piensa de trabayar

My Juan

My Juan was looking at me,
telling me: "Young girl,
you look so pretty".
I told him: "Juanito1
I don't feel like
talking to you".
And so my Juan
started talking to me
with a hazelnut stick,
Lord, how stubborn Juan is!
In tears I went
to my mother-in-law's house
which was nearby.
The woman told me:
"Don't take it like that,
the things Juan does.
Because my Juan is
so stubborn, he's like no other,
so lazy that he doesn't work
nor does he think of working".
