Iban al pinar
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER
Serranas de Cuenca
iban al pinar, 
unas por piñones, 
otras por bailar. 

Bailando y partiendo 
las serranas bellas,
un piñón con otro, 
[si ya no es con perlas]1
de amor las saetas 
huelgan de trocar: 
unas por piñones, 
otras por bailar, 

Entre rama y rama 
cuando el ciego dios 
pide al Sol los ojos 
por verlas mejor, 
los ojos del Sol 
las veréis pisar, 
unas por piñones, 
otras por bailar.
