1- In Adelita

Ne ajkopa kampa nepa nochi kouta

kalyetoya nochi in takat ka ni tepos

uan se suapil tekitijke tojtokaya

kuali ki nekia ni ueyi takat.

Kualtsin suapil yejua in Adelita

in suapiltsin ton ne takat ki nekia

kachi kualtsin suapil i love moui

kuali ki nekia in ueyi takat.

Mokakia, kijtouaya yej kemiak kinekiaaa:

Ta Adelita kineki nech tasojtas

nik temoskia tech taltsin uan tech euyat

ipan ueyat tech kuali momiktia

taj tech taltsin tech se teposnejnen.

Ta Adelita kineki nech tasojtas

Aunt Adelita Yejua no suatsin

ni kouilias se kuali kueytsitsin

kampa ni kuikas maj kuatsin maj mijto.

Uan niman tamij kampa nepa mo kiktijte

nochin takamej senualjke tech nin chantsin

uan keman kachi mo miktiaya ne takame

mo kepaya in takame ka nin tepos.

The adelita

At the top of the steep mountain range

encamped was a regiment

and a brave girl followed them

Madly in love with Sgt.

Popular with the troop was Adelita

the woman the sergeant idolized

that besides being brave she was pretty

that even the colonel himself respected her.

And it was heard, that he said, the one who loved her so much:

And if Adelita left with another

I would follow her by land and by sea

if by sea, in a warship

if by land, in a military train.

And if Adelita wanted to be my wife

And if Adelita was already my wife

I would buy her a silk dress

to take her to dance at the barracks.

And after the cruel battle ended

And the troops returned to their camp

By the voice of a woman sobbing

The prayer was heard in the camp.

And upon hearing it, the fearful sergeant

To lose his beloved forever

Hiding her pain under the shawl

He sang to his beloved in this way…

And you could hear what the one who was dying so much said…

And if I die in the war,

And my corpse is going to be buried

Adelita, by God I beg you,

Don’t go crying for me.

the little worm

I want to be a butterfly
and fly from flower to flower,
I want to be a swallow and live in my station.

I want to be a bee
and gather the rich honey,
to take her mouth
the owner of my love

I want to be a grasshopper
and play with my violin,
those beautiful mornings,
sitting in a bush.

But I’m a little worm
and I know what I should do
wait for me in my cocoon,
and grow grow grow.
And grow grow grow
and grow grow grow.
