Siete canciones populares españolas

Traditional

Arranged by Manuel de Falla

 

No. 2 – Seguidilla murciana

Cualquiera que el tejado

tenga de vidrio

no debe tirar piedras

al del vecino.

Arrieros semos;

puede que en el camino

nos encontramos

 

Por tu mucha inconstancia

yo te comparo

con peseta que corre

de mano en mano,

que al fin se borra,

y creyendola falsa

nadie la toma

 

No. 2 – Seguidilla murciana

Those who live in glass houses

Should not throw stones at their neighbor.

I admit we are wanderers, mule

    drivers, on the way to the market place

So it is not possible that we meet on the same road.

For you who are so inconsiderate and cowardly,

I compare you to a gold coin that

    Passes from hand to hand until it wears out,

And thinking it counterfeit, nobody wants it.

The same can be said of you.

The Complete Conchita Supervia, Vol. 1
Odeon 1927-1928
