Caminito
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Caminito caminito 
tan parecido a mi pena
cual si lo hubieran escrito
Mis lágrimas en la arena

Mísero pia en los cardos
Un pajarillo invernal
El frio eriza sus dardos 
como un cardo de cristal

y el caminito persiste
en la llanura serena
Caminito largo y triste
tan parecido a mi pena
