Canción de cuna

Language: Spanish (Español)

En tu puerta, Teresa,
canta un canario,
échale cañamones
que cante claro.

Cambrú, Cambrú,
serenadito, Cambrú
que a los pies de la cama
llora el niño de la U,
y su madre le dice:
ea, vaya,
calla, no llores,
que viene el bú,
serenadito, Cambú.

Al arrullo, al arrullo,
duerme mi niño;
duerme mi niño duerme,
duerme al arrullo.

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Spanish (Español)

An deiner Tür, Teresa,
singt ein Kanarienvogel,
wirf ihm Hanfsamen zu,
auf dass er lieblich singt.

Cambrú, Cambrú,
ein Wiegenlied,
ein kleines Wiegenlied, cambru,
denn am Fuß des Bettes
weint das Kind des U,
und seine Mutter sagt:
Nun dann, nun dann,
sei still und wein’ nicht mehr,
sonst kommt der schwarze Mann 
im Nu,
mein Wiegenlied, Cambú.

Beim Wiegenlied, beim Wiegenlied
schlaf, mein Kind;
schlaf mein Kindlein, schlaf
schlaf beim Wiegenlied.
