Lyrics - Spanish

(Folk song from Venezuela)

Ya te conozco, robalo por el camino que vas (repeat)
Con tus zapaticos blancos y tus medias colorás

Prestame acá tu curiara con un par de canaletes,
para coger al robalo que me ha roto mi filetes.

Robalito, robalito, ¿porqué estas tan asustao?
si porque ves la tarraya, todavia no te he pescao.

Si el robalo se me aboya por Dios, que lo toleteo;
y si se va para abajo lo cojo y lo guaraleo.

English Translation – The Snook Fish

I already know you, snook (fish), the path you go
With your white shoes and your colored socks

Lend me your boat here with a couple of paddles,
to catch the snook that has torn my cord.

Little snook, little snook, why are you so scared?
Yes, because you see the net, I haven’t caught you yet.

If the snook floats, for God’s sake, I’ll tolerate it;
and if it goes down I’ll catch it and keep it safe.
