iv. Arrorró

Arrorró mi nene,
Arrorró mi sol,
Arrorró pedazo
De mi corazón.

Este nene lindo
Se quiere dormir
Y el pícaro sueño
No quiere venir.

Lullaby
English translation © Jacqueline Cockburn

Lullaby my baby;
lullaby my sunshine;
lullaby part
of my heart.

This pretty baby
wants to sleep
and that fickle sleep
won’t come.
