Sephardic Folk - Maldicha Tripa De Madre (English translation)

Ladino (Judeo-Spanish)

Maldicha Tripa De Madre

Maldicha tripa de madre,
ke siete ijaz pario,
sin dingun ijo varon.
No moz maldigash mi padre,
no moz maldigash mi senyor,
si ez por la vuestra gerra,
la gerra la venso yo.
Kaya, kaya tu mi ija,
k'ez verguenza i bizayon,
ya me muero la mi madre,
ya me muero del amo.
Ke te are el mi ijo,
tiene echaz de varon.

The mother's womb is cursed

The mother's womb is cursed,
she has birthed seven daughters,
but not a single son.
Don't curse us father,
don't curse us my lord,
if it's for the current war,
we'll go out to war.
Be quiet, be quiet my daughter,
it's an embarrassment and a shame,
mother, I'm already dying,
I'm already dying of love.
I will make you my son,
you have the makings of a man.
