Singing in Spanish #2

Here’s the second post
In the series of Singing in Spanish,
Musica Romantica,

Translated from Spanish to English below.
Sung my neighbor Lorenzo and his quartet,
On stage last night here in San Miguel.
The link below has a movie of their performance
Singing  Si Nos Dejan

 

Click here for the video of Si Nos Dejan
Wait for it to load, and sing along!
The words, in Spanish and English are below:

Si Nos Dejan – If They Let Us

Si nos dejan,
……If the let us,
Nos vamos a querer toda la vida
……We are going to be in love all of our lives

Si nos dejan,
……If they let us,
Nos vamos a vivir a un mundo nuevo
……We are going to live in a new world

Yo creo podemos ver, el nuevo amanecer de un nuevo día
……I think we can see a new dawn of a new day
Yo pienso que tu y yo, podemos ser felices todavía
……I think that you and I can still be happy

Si nos dejan
……If they let us
Buscamos un rincón cerca del cielo
……We’ll look for a corner nook close to heaven

Si nos dejan
……If they let us
Hacemos con las nubes terciopelo
……We’ll make it with the velvet clouds

Y ahí juntitos los dos cerquita de dios sera lo que soñamos
……And there, the both of us together, close to God will be like we are dreaming
Si nos dejan, te llevo de la mano corazón y ahí nos vamos
……If they let us, I will take you by the hand dear heart and there we will go

Si nos dejan
……If they let us
Hacemos con las nubes terciopelo
……We’ll make it with the velvet clouds

Y ahí juntitos los dos cerquita de dios sera lo que soñamos
……And there, the both of us together, close to God will be like we are dreaming
Si nos dejan, te llevo de la mano corazón y ahí nos vamos
……If they let us, I will take you by the hand dear heart and there we will go

Si nos dejan, de todo lo demás nos olvidamos
……If they let us, we will forget all of the rest
¡Si nos dejan!
……If they let us!

    • We would love a serenade someday, thank you. I think maybe we have a new calling in Karaoke – a pasatiempo that I had not thought of before.

      I’m working on the next ones – luckily these are all filmed in whole pieces so easier to put together than some of the other movies – you can sneak peak in the photo album, just click close after the video and you’ll be able to see what else is up there. The movies go faster than the writing.
