De la Sierra Morena, celito lindo
Vienen bajando
Un par de ojitos negros celito lindo
De contrabando

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay! Canta y no llores
Porque cantando se alegran, celito lindo
Los corazones

Una flecha in el aire, celito lindo
Lanzo Cupido
Y como fue jugando, celito lindo
Yo fui el herido

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay! Canta y no llores
Suben y crecen y con el mismo viento, celito lindo
Des aparecen

Todas las ilusiones, celito lindo
Que el amor fragua
Son com las espumas, celito lindo
Que forma el agua

From the Sierra Morena, my pretty darling
There came descending
One shining pair of dark eyes, my pretty darling
Jewels beyond spending

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay! Sing, don't be tearful
Because a voice that is singing, my pretty darling
Makes the heart cheerful

Cupid let fly an arrow, my pretty darling
Love's fiery dart
And as he went away laughing, my pretty darling
It struck my heart

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay! Surging and growing
And by the same wind that stirs them, my pretty darling
Off they are blowing

All the airy illusions, my pretty darling
That love devises
Are like the foam on the water, my pretty darling
Thin as it rises
