-  Transcription: Y al despedirme de ti/no tuve yo vocación,/quiso el cielo que volviera/a darte satisfacción./Me fui con el alma partida/y el corazón traspasado,/me fui con aquel cuidado/que no te avisé, mi vida./Fue tan pronto mi partida/que si remedio tuviera,/yo porque no se supiera/que alguien te amaba, prendita,/y esa fue causa, negrita,/de que no me despidiera./Pero no es como un penitente/y he pasado la ocasión,/por allí está la razón,/y ando de mi tierra ausente,/y ahora que te veo presente/quiso Dios no me muriera,/la fortuna me trujiera/y el que te mire ahora dijo,/-No me niegues tus ojitos/quiso el cielo que volviera.
-  Transcription: English Translation
-  Transcription: Upon taking my leave of you/I could not do so sincerely,/heaven willed that I return/to give you satisfaction./I left with my soul rent /and my heart pierced, /I left with that care /I did not warn you of, my love./My departure was so sudden/that if I could make amends,/I would keep it from her/that someone loved her, darling,/and that was cause, sweetheart,/for me not to say goodbye./But it is not like a penitent/and I have lost the opportunity,/there is the reason,/I am absent from my homeland/and now that I see you here,/God did not want me to die,/fortune would bring me/and he that sees you now said,/-Do not deny me your sweet eyes/heaven wanted me to return.
