La violetera
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Soy la linda violetera
De mirada lisongera
Voy violetas repartiendo y sonrisas
recogiendo los hombres a pasar.

Soy la linda violetera.
Mi ilusión es pasagera
Nadie en mis [besos]1 confia
pues mi amor es flor de un día
sin perfume de azahar.
