Original text and translations

Spanish.png Spanish text

Allá en un portal
lejos formaban un festín
y a la recién parida
que es mas linda que abril.

Tenía un niño en brazos
y al punto en que lo vi,
la buena ventura
al Niño leí.

Este niño es un lirio
no lo hay que dudar
y a los treintaitres años
le han de crucificar.

En Vuestra cabeza
segun lo he oído decir
cincuenta mil espinas
os le han de ceñir.

(Little Gypsy Girl)

1.Over there in a far away portal
they were having a feast,
and to the brand new mother
who is prettier than April.
She had a Boy, and at the point when I saw him,
I read the Boy his good fortune.

2. This Boy is undoubtedly a lily,
and at the age of thirty three,
He will be crucified.
On Your head, according to what I've heard,
they will put fifty thousand spines.
