Español

Yo quisiera que me digas
sin rodeos, con franqueza,
levantando tu cabeza, descubierto el corazón.
Si serás de veras mía, si es verdad que sientes pena
como me dijiste un día, que estás triste sin amor.

Rosarina linda, es tu boca, son tus ojos,
el encanto de mi vida que del cielo me envía Dios.
Rosarina linda, hay un algo en tu mirada
que me invita a contemplarla.
Por ti, mi vida me muero yo.

(Instrumental)

English

I would like you to tell me
without going around, with frankness,
lifting your head, uncovering the heart.
If you’ll really be mine, if it’s true that you feel sad
like you told me one day, that you’re sad without love.

Pretty Rosarina, your mouth, your eyes are
the charm of my life that God sends me from heaven.
Pretty Rosarina, there’s something in your gaze
that invites me to contemplate it.
For you, love of my life, I die.

(Instrumental)
