Lyrics

La flor del Romero llora

La flor del Romero a solas,
llora cuando ve que cortan
margaritas y amapolas,
la flor del Romero llora.

Tambien llora la rivera
cuando el rio arrastra flores
al llegar la primavera
tambien llora la rivera.

Yo también llore de pena
aquel día en que con otro
caminabas por la arena
también yo sufrí de pena.

The flower of the rosemary is crying

The flower of the rosemary remained alone
She cries when she sees that they cut
Marguerites and poppies,
The flower of the rosemary is crying.

River-bank also cries
When the river pulls off the flowers
At the beginning of the spring,
River-bank also cries.

I also cried from pain
That day when with other
You were walking on the sand,
I also suffered from pain.
