  • Llorona:

    In Mexican folklore, La Llorona ("The Wailing Woman" or "the Cryer") is a legend about a ghost woman who drowned her children and mourns their deaths for eternity. Multiple variations exist, as is common in oral tradition. The story says that a woman was unloved by her husband, who loved their two sons instead. She caught her husband with another woman and drowned her sons in a river, in grief and anger, and then drowned herself. She was refused entry to heaven until she found the souls of her two sons. She cries and wails and takes children and drowns them in the same river where she and her sons drowned.

Submitter's comments:

Spanish and "English" versions are the same, so I'll just upload this once with the Spanish singers because I think it sounds more natural.

The Llorona ("The Weeping Woman")

Alas, Llorona
Llorona [dressed] in light blue
Alas, Llorona
Llorona [dressed] in light blue
 
And even if it costs my life, Llorona
I won't stop loving you
I won't stop loving you
I climbed the highest pine tree, Llorona
To see if I could spot you
I climbed the highest pine tree, Llorona
To see if I could spot you
But the pine tree was tender, Llorona
When it saw me cry, it cried
But the pine tree was tender, Llorona
When it saw me cry, it cried
 
Sorrow and that which is not sorrow, Llorona
Everything is sorrow for me
Sorrow and that which is not sorrow, Llorona
Everything is sorrow for me
 
Yesterday I cried 'cause I wanted to see you, Llorona
Now I cry because I saw you
Yesterday I cried 'cause I wanted to see you, Llorona
Now I cry because I saw you
 
Alas, Llorona, Llorona
Llorona [dressed] in light blue
Alas, Llorona, Llorona
Llorona [dressed] in light blue
 
And even if it costs my life, Llorona
I won't stop loving you
And even if it costs my life, Llorona
I won't stop loving you
I won't stop loving you
I won't stop loving you
Ay, ay, ay!
