Goodbye, cute Mariquita
I’m leaving because you
You don’t love me more
Such as I love you

Goodbye, chaparrita chula
I’m leaving
to those very distant lands
and I’ll never go back

Goodbye, life of my life
The cause of all my pain
The love of all my lovers
The fragrance of my flowers
I’ll leave you forever

Goodbye, cute Mariquita
I’m leaving
With the soul very sad
By the anguish and the pain
I go, because your indifferences
Have hurt without mercy and forever
My poor heart

Goodbye, my little white house
The cradle of all my lovers
When I look at you among the flowers
and singing my sorrows
I give you my last “good bye”.
