Porque toco el pandero
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): FRE GER
Porque toco el pandero,
mi madre riñe,
Porque rompo justillo,
mandil y dengue.
Ven a verme, Manuel del alma,
Ven a verme, que soy tu dama.

En medio de la plaza,
en medio, medio,
Hay una enredadera
Donde me enredo.
Ven a verme, Manuel del alma,
Ven a verme, que soy tu dama.

Pourquoi je joue du tambourin
Language: French (Français)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Pourquoi je joue du tambourin,
Ma mère se plaint
Parce que je déchire corsage
tablier et  jupe.
Viens me voir, Manuel de mon âme,
Viens me voir, que je sois ta femme.

Au milieu de la place,
au milieu, au milieu,
Il y a un lierre
où je me prends.
Viens me voir, Manuel de mon âme,
Viens me voir, que je sois ta femme.
