Llorad, Corazón, que tenéis razón

Language: Spanish (Español)

Lloraba la niña 
(y tenía razón)
la prolija ausencia 
de su ingrato amor. 
Dejola tan niña, 
que apenas, creo yo 
que tenía los años 
que ha que la dejó. 
Llorando la ausencia 
del galán traidor, 
la halla la Luna 
y la deja el Sol, 
añadiendo siempre 
pasión a pasión,
memoria a memoria 
dolor a dolor. 
Llorad, Corazón, 
que tenéis razón.

Weint, Herzen, denn ihr habt einen Grund

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

Das Mädchen trauerte und weinte
(aus gutem Grund)
bleibt doch ihr undankbarer Liebster
ihr seit langem fern.
So jung verließ er sie -
kaum kann ich glauben ,
dass sie damals schon so viele Jahre gelebt hatte,
wie sie lebte, seit er sie verlassen hatte.
Bei ihrer Trauer über 
den Treulosen 
findet sie der Mond,
als die Sonne sie verließ.
So kommt immer 
Leiden auf Leiden,
Erinnerung auf Erinnerung
Schmerz auf Schmerz.
Weint, Herzen, 
denn ihr habt einen Grund.
