Linda Ronstadt – Palomita De Ojos Negros lyrics

Written by Tomas Mendez

Una blanca palomita, una blanca palomita
De ojos negors... Negros... Negros...
Se parГі en mi ventanita a contarme su pena
Me delito tiene espinas
Ya no las puedo aguantar

Tristemente me contaba cuando en eso las campanas
De una iglesia chiquitita
Asustaron a la ingrata, y a su nido fue a parar
Sin que pudiera decirle que su mal era mi mal

Paloma... Paloma...
Justamente te pareces a mi alma
Paloma... Paloma...
Justamente eres hermana de mi mal

A Little White Dove with Black Eyes

A white little dove
With black eyes... Black... Black...
Stopped in my little window to tell me her sorrows
My conscience is prickling me
I can't take it anymore

She was speaking sadly
When the ringing of the church bells
Frightened her back to her nest
I did not get to tell her that her troubles were just like mine

Little dove... Little dove...
You are my soulmate
Little dove... Little dove...
You are my sister in misfortune
