Si con mis deseos
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Si con mis deseos
Los tiempos caminaran,
Al sol aventajaran 
Los pasos giganteos, 
Y mis dulces empleos 
Celebrará Sevilla, 
Sin envidiar celosa
Amante venturosa 
La regalada y tierna tortolilla,
Que con arrullos roncos 
Tálamos hace de los huecos troncos.

Si avec mes désirs
Language: French (Français)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Si avec mes désirs
Les saisons voyageaient,
Elles dépasseraient le soleil,
Avec leurs pas de géants,
Et mes doux travaux
Seraient célébrés par Séville
Sans envier par jalousie
L'amant heureux,
La douce et tendre tourterelle
Qui avec ses roucoulements enroués
Fait une couche de troncs creux.
