Lyrics - Spanish

(Folk song from Chile)

Qué grande que viene el río,
Qué grande se va la mar.
Si lo aumenta el llanto mío,
Cómo grande no ha de estar. (repeat)

Río, río, río, río,
Devolvedme el amor mío,
Devolvedme el amor mío,
Que me canso de esperar.

English Translation - River river

How big that comes the river
How big it goes the sea
If my cry makes it bigger,
How big won’t it be

River, river, river, river,
Return to me my love
Return to me my love
I’m tired of waiting
