Vos me matásteis (1947)


Part of a series or song cycle:

Cuatro madrigales amatorios


Vos me matásteis

Vos me matásteis,
niña en cabello,
vos me habéis muerto.
Riberas de un río
ví moza vírgo,
Niña en cabello,
vos me habéis muerto.
Niña en cabello
vos me matásteis,
vos me habéis muerto.

You killed me

You killed me,
girl with hair hanging loose,
you have slain me.
By the river bank
I saw a young maiden.
Girl with hair hanging loose,
you have slain me.
Girl with hair hanging loose,
you have killed me,
you have slain me.
Translations by Jacqueline Cockburn and Richard Stokes published in the The Spanish Song Companion (Gollancz, 1992)
