Érase un angelito

Lyrics - Spanish

(Folk song)

Érase un angelito que del cielo bajó (y bajó)
Con sus alas extendidas y en el pecho una flor (una flor)
De la flor una rosa, de la rosa un clavel (un clavel)
Del clavel una niña que se llama Isabel (Isabel)
Isabel yo me llamo hija de un labrador (labrador)
Cuando corro por los campos no le temo al sol (al sol)
Voy en busca de flores que no son para mí, (para mí)
Son para un marinero que está loco por mí (por mí)

English Translation – There was a little angel

There was a little angel who came down from heaven (and came down)
With her wings spread and on her chest a flower (a flower)
From the flower a rose, from the rose a carnation (a carnation)
From the carnation a girl called Isabel (Isabel)
Isabel, my name is the daughter of a farmer (farmer)
When I run through the fields I’m not afraid of the sun (the sun)
I go in search of flowers that are not for me, (for me)
They are for a sailor who’s crazy about me (about me)
