El majo olvidado

Language: Spanish (Español)

Cuando recuerdes los días pasados,
piensa en mí, en mí.
Cuando de flores se llene tu reja,
piensa en mí, piensa en mí.

Cuando en las noches serenas,
cante el ruiseñor,
piensa en el majo olvidado
que muere de amor.

¡Pobre del majo olvidado!
¡Qué duro sufrir, sufrir, sufrir!
Pues que la ingrata le dejó,
no quiere vivir.

L'amoureux oublié

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

Quand tu te rappelles les jours passés,
pense à moi, à moi.
Quand les fleurs remplissent ta grille,
pense à moi, pense à moi.

Quand dans les nuits sereines
chante le rossignol,
pense à l'amoureux oublié
qui meurt d'amour.

Pauvre amoureux oublié !
Comme il est dur de souffrir, souffrir, souffrir !
Parce que l'ingrate l'a quitté,
il ne veut plus vivre.
