Manzanita colorada,
¿cómo no te caza el suelo?
¡Toda la vida he andado,
la resalada,
por alcanzarte y no puedo!

Dentro de mi pecho tengo
dos escaleras de vidrio:
Por una sube el querer,
la resalada,
por otra baja el cariño.

De Ronda
Language: French (Français)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Petite pomme colorée,
Pourquoi ne tombes-tu pas par terre ?
Toute la vie j'ai marché,
Délicieuse,
Pour t'attraper et je ne peux pas !

À l'intérieur de mon cœur j'ai
Deux escaliers en verre :
Par l'un monte le désir,
Délicieuse,
Par l'autre descend l'affection.
