El barquero
...........................
 
The skipper
...........................

Al pasar la barca
me dijo el barquero
"Las niñas bonitas
no pagan dinero".
Yo no soy bonita
ni lo quiero ser.
A la barca, barca
una, dos y ... tres.

Al pasar la barca
me dijo el barquero
"Las niñas bonitas
no pagan dinero"
la volvi a pasar
me volvió a decir
"las niñas bonitas
pasan por aquí"

Por una peseta
se va en el vapor
se come y se bebe
y se ve la función,
y el que no la tiene,
no va en el vapor
ni come, ni bebe,
ni ve la función.

Vamos a la iglesia
que hay mucho que ver,
que se casa un hombre
con una mujer:
La mujer es ciega
y el hombre no ve
vaya un casamiento
que vamos a ver.

When I walked by a ship
the skipper told me
"The pretty girls
don't have to pay."
I'm not pretty
and I don't want to be
Onboard the ship, the ship
one, two and ... three.

When I walked by a ship
the skipper told me
"The pretty girls
don't have to pay. "
I walked by again,
and he told me again,
"The pretty girls
don't have to pay."

For one peseta
one can go on steam
one can eat and drink
and watch a show
And, who does not have it
who does not go with the steam ship
does not eat, does not drink
and does not see the show.

We go to church
there is a lot to see
that a man
marries a woman:
The woman is blind
and the man cannot see.
What a wedding
we will see.
