Lyrics - Spanish

(Mexican folk song)

1. Niño precioso, más qué el armiño,
Risueño niño, Dios del amor.
Duerme, chiquitito, Que hoy hace frío.
Duerme, amor mío, Yo velaré.

2. Niño precioso, más que diamantes
Risueño niño, Dios del amor
Duerme tranquilo, duerme entretanto
Josefina linda, nunca te dejaré.

English translation - Precious child

1. Precious child, more than the ermine,
Laughing child, God of love
Sleep, little one, that today is cold.
Sleep, my love, I will watch.

2. Precious child, more than diamonds
Laughing child, God of love
Sleep easy, sleep in the meantime
Beautiful Josefina, I will never leave you.
