Caetano Veloso – Cucurrucucu Paloma lyrics

Dicen que por las noches
No mas se le iba en puro llorar;
Dicen que no comia,
No mas se le iba en puro tomar.

Juran que el mismo cielo
Se estremecia al oir su llanto,
Como sufría por ella,
Y hasta en su muerte la fue llamando:

Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay cantaba,
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay gemia,
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay cantaba,
De pasion mortal moria.

Que una paloma triste
Muy de mañana le va a cantar
A la casita sola
Con sus puertitas de par en par;
Juran que esa paloma
No es otra cosa mas que su alma,
Que todavia espera
A que regrese la desdichada.

Cucurrucucu paloma, cucurrucucu no llores.
Las piedras jamas, paloma,
Que van a saber de amores?
Paloma, ya no le llores
