Cielito lindo


De la Sierra Morena,
cielito lindo, vienen bajando,
Un par de ojitos negros,
cielito lindo, de contrabando.

Ay, ay, ay, ay,
Canta y no llores,
Porque cantando se alegran,
cielito lindo, los corazones.


From the Sierra Morena, pretty darling,
they come down, a pair of black eyes,
Pretty little heaven, which are contraband.

Ay, ay, ay, ay,
sing and don’t cry,
because singing gladdens,
Pretty little heaven, the hearts.

  1. I love teaching this, thank you for taking the time to write it out so I didn’t have to 🙂 Just a friendly fyi that the rhythm in the chorus is traditionally sung differently than what is printed here (especially chorus measures 9-10 and 14)
