Fuistes derecha, no me fallaste
y aunque fui malo, seguiste fiel
todo el cariño que me juraste
recien lo alcanzo a comprender.

Lo supe todo cuando mi daga
corto la vida de mi rival,
“Es inocente,” y esas palabras
fueron elogio de tu lealtad.

Volve mi negra al nido
que loco yo deshice
que el mal que cruel te hice
te juro haz de olvidar.

Volve mi negra buena
volve pa’perdonarme
que asi solo haz de darme,
dicha y felicidad.

Y aqui otra vez juntitos
sabre recompensarte
con cariño constante
tu nobleza y lealtad.

Volve mi negra buena
que mi cariño espera
la buena compañera
que no se ira jamas.

Y en estas noches de crudo invierno
triste y sombrio del arrabal
siento en mi pecho intenso frio
es que me espanta la soledad.

Por eso negra vengo a buscarte
quiero que escuches mi corazon
Volve mi negra, quiero pagarte
con mi ternura todo mi amor.

Volve mi negra al nido
que loco yo deshice
que el mal que cruel te hice
te juro haz de olvidar.

Volve mi negra buena
volve pa’perdonarme
que asi solo haz de darme,
dicha y felicidad.

Y aqui otra vez juntitos
sabre recompensarte
con cariño constante
tu nobleza y lealtad.

Volve mi negra buena
que mi cariño espera
la buena compañera
que no se ira jamas.

You were straight, you didn’t let me down,
and although I was wrong, you remained faithful
all the love that you promised
I’m just beginning to comprehend.

I knew it all when my dagger
cut short the life of my rival,
“He is innocent,” and those words
were a praise of your loyalty.

Come back my friend to the nest
that I, distraught, messed up
the evil that, cruelly, I did to you
I swear, you will forget.

Come back, my good friend
come back to forgive me
That way you will only give me,
joy and happiness.

And here again together
I’ll know how to reward,
with constant affection,
your nobility and loyalty.

Come back, my good friend
that my affection awaits
the good partner
that will never go away.

And in those cold winter nights,
sad and gloomy, of the suburb
I feel in my chest an intense cold,
it’s that it scares me the loneliness.

That’s why I come to get you
I want you to listen to my heart
Come back my friend, I wanna pay you
with my tenderness all my love.

Come back my friend to the nest
that I, distraught, messed up
the evil that cruel I did to you
I swear, you will forget.

Come back, my good friend
come back to forgive me
That way you will only give me,
joy and happiness.

And here again together
I’ll know how to reward,
with constant affection,
your nobility and loyalty.

Come back, my good friend
that my affection awaits
the good partner
that will never go away.
