Cantaremos                                                                                                           Traditional Spanish Dance, arr. by Ramón Noble

We will sing and dance, my love, at the joyful celebration of the union of our hands, which are well united to your heart.  Come to me, lovely maiden.  Our love will bring much happiness.

Las Mañanitas                                                                                                          Traditional Mexican Song, arr. by Ramón Noble

These are the little songs of the morning sung by King David.  We sing them to all the pretty girls here.  Wake up, my love—awaken.  Look what has already risen. The little birds are singing and the moon has already set.  If the nightwatchman on the corner would like to do me a favor, he could blow out his little lantern while my love passes by.

El Jarabe Tapatio                                                                                                      Traditional Mexican Song, arr. by Ramón Noble

Let’s go to Zapotlán, if you want, to see the woman who makes delicious bread.  Let’s go eat soup along with everyone who passes by.  If the soup is sour, the cook is bitter.  The soup is gone.  And we won’t be able to marry.  Diana, Diana to your Aunt Mariana.  Diana, Diana to your Uncle Simon.

De Amor Heridos                                                                                                      Traditional Mexican Song, arr. by Ramón Noble

If you want to avoid the tortures of love, do not attempt to court that brunette.  Many are hurt by love.  I, too, was wounded by this great bliss—I won’t tell you by whom.  With this bitter pain, it is best I keep quiet.
