Dicen que no nos queremos
Porque no nos ven hablar;
A tu corazón y al mío
Se lo pueden preguntar.

Ya me despido de tí,
De tu casa y tu ventana,
Y aunque no quiera tu madre,
Adiós, niña, hasta mañana.
Aunque no quiera tu madre...

Language: French (Français)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Ils disent que nous ne nous aimons pas
Parce qu'ils ne nous voient jamais nous parler ;
À ton cœur et au mien
Ils pourraint le demander.

Maintenant je te fais mes adieux,
À ta maison et à ta fenêtre,
Et même si ta mère ne veut pas,
Adieu, chérie, à demain.
Et même si ta mère ne veut pas...
