Cielito Lindo /
Oh Pretty Darling

David translated the famous Mexican song "Cielito Lindo" into catchy and singable English.
David, Leigh, Kayleigh and Laurel learned all the words in both languages and sang it together at a talent show.
We didn't win, but had a lot of fun.  I do believe these are the best English lyrics for Cielito Lindo on the net!
 This page is illustrated with the family pictures shown while we sang at my mother's 70th birthday bash.

De la Sierra Morena,
Cielito Lindo, vienen bajando.
Un par de ojitos negros,
Cielito Lindo, de contrabando.

Oh Pretty Darling, men are descending.

Los corazones.

Cielito Lindo,
y a mí me ha herido.

Oh Pretty Darling,
it came from Cupid.
And though he was only playing,
Oh Pretty Darling,
my heart has been wounded!

Canta y no llores.
Porque cantando,
se alegran,
Cielito Lindo,
Los corazones.

junto a la boca.
No se lo des a nadie,
Cielito Lindo,
que a mi me toca.

Oh Pretty Darling,
it’s simply divine.
Don’t let anybody touch it,

Cielito Lindo,
Los corazones.
