1. ¡Que bonito Río de Mayo! (repeat)
Métanse, que no esta hondo.
Les traemos un guaymeño (repeat)
Que les dé vuelta en redondo.
2. Ese don Lorenzo Torres (repeat)
Es un hombre muy cobarde
Para entregar a Cajemé (repeat)
Primero lo hizo compadre.
3. Dicen que Cajemé ha muerto,
No es verdad, no ha muerto nada
Anda con todos sus Indios para la Sierra Mojada.
1. How beautiful is the Mayo River (in Sonora)…
Get in, because it’s not deep.
We bring a Guamanian with us…
They turn them around.
2. That boss Lorenzo Torres…
He is a very cowardly man
To deliver Cajemé…
First he made him a godfather / good friend.
3. They say Cajemé has died…
It is not true; he has not died.
He’s walking with all of the the Indians
Toward the Sierra Mojada (a city in the north-eastern Mexican state of Coahuila). (source)
