Lila Downs "El venadito" lyrics

Translation to: EN

Soy un pobre venadito
Que habito en la serranía
Como no soy tan mansito
No bajo al agua de día
De noche poco a poquito
Y a tus brazos vida mia

Ya tengo listo el nopal
Donde' de cortar la tuna
Ya tengo listo el nopal
Donde' de cortar la tuna
Como soy hombre formal
No me gusta tener una
Me gusta tener de a dos
Por si se me'noja alguna

Quisiera ser perla fina
De tus lucidos aretes
Quisiera ser perla fina
De tus lucidos aretes
Pa'besarte la orejita
Y morderte los cachetes
Quién te manda ser bonita
Si esto a mi me compromete

Quisiera ser perla....

Ya con esta me despido
Pero pronto doy la vuelta
Ya con esta me despido
Pero pronto doy la vuelta
No'más que me libre dios
De una niña mosca muerta
De esas que, ¡ay
Mamá por Dios!
Que no salen a la puerta.

I'm a poor little deer
that lives in the highlands,
since I am not very mild
I don't go to the river at daytime,
but at night, little by little,
and to your arms, my love.

I have ready the 'nopal' 1.
where I have to cut the 'tuna'.2.
I have ready the nopal
where I have to cut the tuna'
Since I am a thoughtful man,
I don't like to have just one
I prefer to go by twos
in case one of them gets mad.

I would like to be a fine pearl
in your brilliant ear rings.
I would like to be a fine pearl
in your brilliant ear rings,
so I would kiss you in the ears.
and I would bite your cheeks.
Who asked you to be so pretty
if this compromises me?

I would like to be ... (repeats)

And with this I say good-bye
but I'll return pretty soon.
And with this I say good-bye
but I'll return pretty soon.
I just wish that God keeps me
from a two face phony girl,
One of those that, oh
my God, mom!
don't come out to the door!
