Original text and translations

Spanish.png Spanish text

—Pastorcillo triste,
¿quién te aconsejó
que amante y celoso
llamases al sol?

—Pastorcillo de nuestra aldea
que llamas, cantando, los rayos del sol,
¿qué tienes?


—Pues si quieres y penas,
llamar a la noche y llorar es mejor.

—Sad little shepherd,
who advised you that,
out of love and jealousy,
you should call the sun?

—Little shepherd of our village
that calls, singing, the rays of sunlight,
what troubles you?


—But if you desire and suffer,
you would do better to call the night and cry.
