Available translation(s): ENG
Hallo que ningún poder
ni libertad en mí tengo
pues ni estó ni vo ne vengo
donde quiere mi querer.

Que si estó, vos me tenéis,
si vo, vos me lleváis,
si vengo vos me traéis,
assí que no me dexáis,
señora ni me queréis.

I find that I have
Language: English  after the Spanish (Español) 
  I find that I have
  no power or freedom,
  for I neither am, nor go,
  nor come where I wish.
 
  For if I am, you hold me;
  if I go, you carry me;
  if I come, you bring me.
  So that, my lady, 
  you neither love nor leave me.
