ALMITA MIA – Ande con mañita almita mía, no vaya a ser que me la aporreen por ahí. Ande con cuidao’ corazón mío no vaya a ser que tanto amor. Me le haga daño corazón. A una torcacita se parece esta alma mía, llena de tanto dolor. Ojalá y el nido que ella encuentre esté muy cerca de tu voz. Esté muy cerca de tu voz. Almita mía, torcacita, cantando dentro de otra voz. Corazón mío hace tu nido dentro de otro corazón. Si es que esta tristeza encuentra luz estando dentro de tu, voz corazón. Ojalá que cuando cantes tú puedas oír también mi voz puedas oír también mi voz.

ALMITA MIA – Walk with me, my little almita, I will not be beaten over there. Walk with care ‘my heart is not going to be that much love. It hurts my heart. To a little torcacita resembles this soul of mine, full of so much pain. Hopefully and the nest she finds is very close to your voice. Be very close to your voice. Almita mine, torcacita, singing in another voice. My heart makes your nest inside another heart. If this sadness finds light being within your heart voice. Hopefully when you sing you can also hear my voice you can also hear my voice.
