Carmen Carmela

Lyrics - Spanish

(Mexican folk song)

Así cual mueren en occidente
Los tibios rayos del astro rey
Así murieron mis ilusiones
Así extinguiendo se va mi fe

Carmen Carmela
Luz de mis ojos
Si luz no hubiera
Habías de ser
Hermoso faro
De venturanza
Dulce esperanza
Bello placer

English Translation

So which die in the West
The warm rays of the sun
Thus my illusions died
So my faith is going extinct

Carmen Carmela
Light of my eyes
If there were no light
You had to be
a beautiful lighthouse
of undeserved stroke of fortune
Sweet hope, beautiful pleasure
