There was a charro a-sitting on the fence of a wide corral.
“I need a horse and a saddle and some boots and a coat of red.”
Kindly the foreman to ask him, “Why so mournful, Nicolás?”
Kindly the foreman assured him, “You shall have them, Nicolás!”

“Just one more thing,” said el charro, “I would marry your daughter, too,”
Firmly the foreman assured him, “She is taken, Nicolás.”
Charro cried out, despairing, “I will throw myself off  a cliff!”
Kindly the foreman suggested, “Then go head first, Nicolás!”
