Lyrics - Spanish

(Mexican folk song)

1. Ya me voy para el Laredo, mi bien,
Te vengo a decir adiós.
De alla te mando decir, mi bien,
Cómo se mancuernan dos.

2. No me busques por vereda ¡mi bien!
Búscame en la travesía;
De allá te mando decir ¡mi bien!
Lo mucho que te queria.

3. Te voy a comprar tu silla ¡mi bien!
Tu freno y tu buen suadero;
Para que te ensille otro ¡mi bien!
Que yo no soy tu vaquero.

4. Toma esta llavita de oro ¡mi bien!
Abre mi pecho y verás
Lo mucho que yo te quiero ¡mi bien!
Y el pago que tú me das.

English Translation – Laredo

1. I’m leaving for Laredo, my dear,
I come to say goodbye.
From there I send you to say, my dear,
How do two match up?

2. Do not look for me on the sidewalk, my good!
Look for me in the crossing;
From there I send you to say, my dear!
How much I loved you.

3. I’m going to buy your chair, my dear!
Your restraint and your good advise;
For another to saddle you, my dear!
That I’m not your cowboy.

4. Take this little golden key, my dear!
Open my chest and you will see
How much I love you, my dear!
And the payment that you give me.
