La virgen se está peinando
Entre cortina y cortina
Los cabellos son de oro
Y los peines de plata fina

Pero mira como beben
Los peces en el río
Pero mira como beben
Por ver al dios nacer

Beben y beben
Y vuelven a beber
Los peces en el agua
por ver al dios nacer

La virgen lleva una rosa
En su divina pechera
Que se la dio San José
Antes que el niño naciera

La virgen va caminando
Y va caminando solita
Y no lleva pa compañía
Que el niño de su manita

La virgen lava pañales
Y los tiende del romero
Los pajarillos cantando
Y el romero floreciendo


The virgin combs her hair
Between curtains and veils
Her hair is of gold
And the combs of fine silver

But look how they drink
The fish in the river
Look how they drink
To see god born

They drink and they drink and they drink again
The fish in the water to see god's birth

The virgin goes walking and she goes
Walking all alone
And she has no company
But the child, by his little hand

The virgin washes swaddling clothes
And hangs them on the rosemary
The songbirds sing
And the rosemary blooms

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on La Llorona. I love that she took the traditional song of Los Peces and made it her own.
