Escogiendo novia

Language: Spanish (EspaƱol)

A la cinta, cinta de oro,
y a la hojita del laurel,
que me ha dicho una señora:
¿Cuántos hijos tiene usted?
Las que tengo no las tengo,
muy bien las he de tener,
mi mamá está enroñadita
por el palacio del rey.
Vuelva p'atrás, pastorcillo,
no me seas tan descortés.
Una sola es la que tengo,
la mejor ha de escoger.
Ésta cojo por esposa,
ésta cojo por mujer,
que parece una rosita
acabada de nacer.
