La bella hortelana

Lyrics - Spanish

(Mexican folk song)

Cuando siembra* la bella hortelana,
Cuando siembra, siembra así.
Si, siembra poco a poco,
Luego pone las manos así,
Siembra así, luego pone las manos así.

*Add a new action with each verse.
se riega (water)
se corta (reap)
se trilla (thresh)
se muele (grind)
se hace (cook)
se come (eat)
se siente (sit)
se despide (say goodbye)

English Translation - The pretty gardener

When the pretty gardener sows,
When she sows, she sows like this.
Yes, she sows little by little,
Then she puts her hands like this.
She sows like this,
then she puts her hands like this.
