¡Muchachos!…
Si cualquiera de estas noches
me ven llegar al café,
tambaleando medio “colo”
babeando y hablando solo,
¡no me pregunten por qué!

Borracho…
Con la melena revuelta,
la corbata floja y suelta
y con rencor al mirar,
no me pregunten, muchachos,
por qué he venido borracho
y de mi tengan piedad.

En la luz de unos ojos divinos
se embriagaban mi alma y mi fe
y en la copa de miel de sus labios
hasta ayer de pasión me embriagué.
Hoy que vivo de nuevo en tinieblas
añorando la luz de su amor
necesito hundir mi existencia
y es por eso que busco el alcohol.

¡Muchachos!…
Si cualquiera de estas noches
me ven llegar al café
tambaleando medio “colo”
babeando y hablando solo
¡no me pregunten por qué!

Borracho…
Refugiado en el alivio
del brebaje dulce y tibio
que nos prodiga el licor.
tal vez me olvide de aquella
que hasta ayer fuera mi estrella
y hoy me mata de dolor.

Boys! …
If any of these nights
you see me coming to the bar,
staggering looking crazy
drooling and talking to himself,
Do not ask me why!

Drunk …
With the hair messed up
the tie loose and undone
and rancor in my eyes,
do not ask me, boys,
why I have come drunk
and have pity of me.

In the light of some divine eyes
My soul and my faith was enraptured
and in the cup of honey of her lips
Until yesterday I was intoxicated with passion.
Today I live in darkness again
longing for the light of her love
I need to sink my existence
and that’s why I’m looking for alcohol.

Boys! …
If any of these nights
you see me coming to the bar,
staggering looking crazy
drooling and talking to himself,
Do not ask me why!

Drunk …
Comforted in the relief
of the sweet and warm concoction
that the liquor gives us.
perhaps I might forget the one
who until yesterday was my star
and today kills me with pain.
