Manuel de Falla - Siete canciones populares españolas (Traditional)
No. 2 - Seguidilla murciana

CD 2, Track 7

 

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 créyendola falsa

¡Nadie la toma!

 

Who has a roof

of glass

should not throw stones

to their neighbor's (roof).

Let us be muleteers;

It could be that on the road

we will meet!

 

For your great inconstancy

I compare you

to a [coin] that runs

from hand to hand;

which finally blurs,

and, believing it false,

no one accepts!
