Thread Name: Lyr Add: Clavelitos (perhaps)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Clavelitos (perhaps)
Mocita dame el clavel, / Maiden, give me the pink
Dame el clavel de tu boca, / Give me the pink of your lips
Que pá eso no hay que tener / For that you don't have to feel
Mucha vergüenza ni poca. / Embarrassment more or less.
Yo te daré el cascabel, / I'll give you the jingle bell
Te lo prometo mocita, /Maiden, I promess
Si tu me das esa miel /if you give me the honey
Que llevas en la boquita. /you carry in your little mouth

Estribillo: Clavelitos, clavelitos, / Pinks, pinks
Clavelitos de mi corazón. / Pinks of my heart
Hoy te traigo clavelitos / Today I bring pinks to you
Colorados igual que un fresón./ as red as a strawberry
Si algún día clavelitos / If one day pinks
No lograra poderte traer, / I failed to bring to you
No te creas que ya no te quiero,/ don't beleive I don't love you
Es que no te los pude traer. / It's just I could not get them

La tarde que a media luz / The evening when in the dimness
Vi tu boquita de guinda, / I saw your cherry lips
Yo no he visto en Sta. Cruz / I've never in Santa Cruz
Otra mocita más linda. / seen a maiden more beautiful
Y luego al ver el clavel / And when I saw the pink
Que llevabas en el pelo, / that you wore in your hair>br> Mirándolo creí ver / looking at it I believed
Un pedacito de cielo. / it was a piece of the Heaven

Hope this helps, it doesn't keep rythm but shows the meaning of the words.

Un abrazo - Andrés
