Tiranilla Española

Language: Spanish (EspaƱol)

La Tirana se embarca
De Cádiz para Marsella,
En alta mar la apresó
Una balandra francesa.

 Ay Tirana retírate a España
 Ay Tirana huye los rigores,
 Ay Triana de la Convención!
 Sí, sí, Tiranilla
 Sí, sí picarilla
 Porque si te pillan,
 Pondrán tu cabeza en la guillotina.

La tirana que de amor muere
No llame muerte al morir,
Que es morir por quien se adora
El más dichoso vivir.


Grande pena es el morir,
Pero yo no la sintiera,
Pues quien vive como yo,
De alegría le sirviera.


Submitted by Ferdinando Albeggiani
