I have but few words for the Mexicans girls
The color of your skin is like the dust on the cameleers face in the deserts
What words should I dedicate for the beauty of all Mexican girls?
For their voice has a tranquility
Their spirit is free and wild
Their ways are savage still ah, heartaches
I have no words for the Mexican girls pity me oh poets!
Sitting lonely near the sea winds play with her hairs
A whisper came rushing “Mexican” oh winds I listen with care to Mexican women speaking
A Mexican girl stole my heart away
Catch her oh God punish her for such hideous crime
Gave me some words to express oh lord
Or make me fall in love with that Mexican girl
