Available translation(s): FRE GER
En las montañas de Asturias
una asturiana ví,
de catorce a quince años,
regando su jardin.
Pasó un caballero, le pide una flor,
y la bella asturiana le dice que no.

Queda con Dios, asturiana,
me la tiés que pagar;
por la cuestión de una flor,
te tengo que matar.
Pasó un caballero, le pide una flor,
y la bella asturiana le dice que no.

Dans les montagnes d'Asturie
Language: French (Français)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Dans les montagnes d'Asturie
J'ai vu une fille d'Asturie,
De quatorze ou quinze ans,
Qui arrosait son jardin.
Un cavalier passa, il demanda une fleur,
Et la belle d'Asturie lui dit non.

Rencontre Dieu, asturienne,
Tu dois me le payer ;
Pour la question d'une fleur,
Je dois te tuer.
Un cavalier passa, il demanda une fleur,
Et la belle d'Asturie lui dit non.
