Décimas Jarochas



“Décima jarocha” inspired by New York’s winter.

Te levanto y de contento

I wake you up, and in joy

Nutro al corazón ufano

Nourish our hearts with morning

Zampándonos campiranos

We have breakfast thinking “country”

Café y pan a fuego lento

Coffee and toast, slowly roasted

Y aunque afuera sople el viento

And even though the wind is howling

Y la nieve nos traslape

And the snow whirlwinds around

Yo te envuelvo en mi sarape

We take refuge in my shawl

Y calientitos los dos

And in here, warm both of us

Cantamos a media voz

We sing softly, softly singing

Pa que nuestro amor nos tape.
