Dos horas ha que callejeo
pero no veo,
nerviosa ya, sin calma,
al que le di confiada
el alma.

No vi hombre jamás
que mintiera más que el majo
que hoy me engaña;
mas no le ha de valer
pues siempre fui mujer de maña
y, si es menester,
correré sin parar,
tras él, entera España.

Dans les rues

Language: French (Français) after the Spanish (Español)

Deux heures que je vais dans les rues
Et que je ne vois pas,
Nerveuse, sans paix,
Celui à qui j'ai confié
mon âme.

Je n'ai jamais vu un homme
qui mente plus que le beau
qui aujourd'hui me trompe ;
mais il devrait se méfier,
car toujours j'ai été une femme rusée
et si c'est nécessaire,
je courrai sans arrêt
après lui dans l'Espagne entière.
