Part of a series or song cycle:

Cinco Canciones populares Argentinas (Op.10 )


Triste

Ah!
Debajo de un limón verde
Donde el agua no corría
Entregué mi corazón
A quien no lo merecía.
Ah!
Triste es el día sin sol
Triste es la noche sin luna
Pero más triste es querer
Sin esperanza ninguna.
Ah!

Sad

Ah!
Beneath a lime tree
where no water flowed
I gave up my heart
to one who did not deserve it.
Ah!
Sad is the sunless day.
Sad is the moonless night.
But sadder still is to love
with no hope at all.
Ah!
