No lloréis ojuelos

Language: Spanish (Español)

No lloréis, ojuelos, 
porque no es razón 
que llore de celos 
quien mata de amor. 

Quien puede matar 
no intente morir, 
si hace con reír 
más que con llorar. 

No lloréis ojuelos, 
porque no es razón 
que llore de celos 
quien mata de amor.

Don't cry, little eyes

Language: English after the Spanish (Español)

Don't cry, little eyes,
Because it isn't right 
That, crying from jealousy,
You kill with love.

One who can kill 
Shouldn't try to die,
If one can do more with laughter 
Instead of crying. 

Don't cry, little eyes, 
Because it isn't right
That, crying from jealousy,
You kill with love!
