No. 1 – El paño moruno

Al paño fino, en la tienda

una mancha le cayó.

Por menos precio vende

porque perdió su valor

 

No. 1 – El paño moruno

The merchant is very sad today. Dust

Has fallen on a valuable bolt of cloth

creating a spot that cannot be re-

moved. No wonder he is sad for the

cloth has lost its original value and

he must sell it at a loss. What grieves

him more is the way the women rush

to take advantage of a bargain.
