A la una yo nací
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the Ladino (Sephardic) 
Available translation(s): ENG
A la una yo nací
A las dos m'engrandecí
A las tres tomí amante
A las quatro me cazí.
Me cazí con un amor,
alma y vida y coracón.

Dime niña donde vienes?
Que te quiero conocer.
Si tú no tienes amante,
yo dejara de aprender,
alma y vida y coracón.

Yendo me para la Guerra,
dos bezos al aire di,
el uno es para mi madre,
y el otro para tí.
