En Jerez de la Frontera

Language: Spanish (Español)

En Jerez de la Frontera
había un molinero honrado,
que ganaba su sustento
con un molino alquilado;
pero es casado
con una moza
como una rosa,
como es tan bella,
el corregidor nuevo
prendó de ella.

En Jerez de la Frontera,
ríese la molinera,
y al corregidor decía,
que amores le pedía:
"Ay, sois gracioso,
muy generoso,
muy lisonjero,
también caballero,
mas quiero a mi molinero
es mi dueño"
