Linda Ronstadt – Los Laureles lyrics

Ay, que laureles tan verdes!
Que rosas tan encendidas!
Si piensas abandonarme mejor quitame la vida;
Alza los ojos a verme
Si no esta comprometido.

Eres mata de algodon!
Que vives en el capullo;
Ay, que tristeza me da
Cuando te llenas de orgullo
De ver a mi corazon
Enredado con el tuyo!

Eres rosa de castilla
Que solo en mayo se ve
Quisiera hacerte un invite,
Pero la verda no se
Si tiene quiйne te lo evite,
Mejor me separare

Por "ai" va la despedida,
Chinito por tus quereres
La perdicion de los hombres;
Son las benditas mujeres

Y aqui se acaban cantando
Los versos de los laureles.

This ranchera is a standard for all
mariachis and dates back to the 1920's
or 1930's. It is supposed to have been
written by Consuelo Vel醩quez; it was
common, especially during the Mexican
Revolution in 1910, for women to write
songs and include the couplets that men
customarily used. This would explain the
line, la perdicion de los hombres son las
maldites mujeres (cursed women), in the
original version. L. Are.


The Laurels

Written by Joselй"‰ez

Ay, how green the laurels are!
What fiery roses!
If you're thinking of leaving me better
to take away my life;
Lift your eyes to look at me
If you are not engaged to be married.

You are a sprig of cotton
That lives in the bud;
Ay, what sadness I feel
When you fill yourself with haughtiness
Upon seeing my heart
Entangled with yours!

You are a rose from Castille
That can only be seen in May
I would like to invite you,
But in truth I don't know
If there is someone in the way
Better that I go away.

So goes the farewell
Chinito, to your affections
The Blessed women
Are the ruin of men;
And here ends the singing
Of the verses of the laurels
