Linda Ronstadt – La Mariquita lyrics

Written by RubГ©n Fuentes

Mariquita se llamaba
La que vive junto al rГ­o
TГЎpame con tu rebozo
Que ya me muero de frГ­o

Si porque me la llevГ©
Su mamГЎ se me enojo; *
Ahora que me lleve a mi
A ver si me enojo yo

Mariquita dame un beso
Tu mamГЎ me lo mandГі
Mi mamГЎ mandarГЎ a mi *
Pero es mi boquita yo *

La Mariquita (Lady Bug)

Mariquita she was called
The girl that lives by the river
Cover me with your shawl
Because I am dying of cold

Because I took her away
Her mother was mad at me
Now that she is the one who takes me away
Let's see if I get mad at her

Give me a kiss Mariquita
Your mother has ordered me to do so
My mother can give me orders
But she can't tell me who to kiss

Trio Voices- Linda Ronstadt, Mike Ronstadt, Pete Ronstadt
