Je voudrais être l'eau,
Ma lumière et mon âme,
Alors avec sa transparence je trinquerais avec toi,
Parce que ta douce bouche me plairait,
Je n'étancherais pas ta soif,
Mais je l'enflammerais.

Je voudrais être le vent ;
Les nuits sombres,
Je pénétrerais dans ton lit en silence,
Et je me laisserais aspirer par tes lèvres
Et je mêlerais ma vie à la tienne.

Je voudrais être le feu
Pour t'embraser
En un volcan d'amour,
Oh, statue inerte,
Sourde aux plaintes
De celui qui a su t'aimer.

Et alors pour te posséder pour toujours,
Je voudrais être la terre,
Et te disputer jalousement
À la cupidité de la mort.

Tu as aimé Pedro, Ignacio, Marcelino,
Casto, Gil, Pepe, Diego,
Puis Anton, puis Restituto,
Et Lucas, et Gines et Guan et Lino.

Et tu as aimé Cleto, Félix, Faustino,
Ta flamme amoureuse est inextinguible,
Tu as aimé Blas, le sourd,
Luis, l'aveugle,
Et Pancho qui venait des Indes.

Aujourd'hui, vieille, pauvre et laide,
(Prends garde, Pablo !),
Tu exhales une plainte interminable,
Une insupportable solitude de vieille fille.

Mais, qui t'aimerait ?
Va au diable !
En plus d'être laide, pauvre et vieille,
À la place d'une âme tu as
Un catalogue !

Ah ! étoiles rayonnantes, belles étoiles,
Vous êtes des yeux magnifiques :
Mais, qu'étiez-vous avant ?
Ah ! Vous tenez des étudiants le caractère rebelle ;
Mais pour les traîtres,
Vous semblez prêts à tuer.

Petits yeux effrontés, petits yeux coquins,
Pourquoi êtes-vous si sages,
Pourquoi êtes-vous si méchants,
Que savez-vous des baisers,
Comme si vous étiez des lèvres ?
