Canzonetta spagnuola

Language: Spanish (EspaƱol)

En medio a mis colores, ay,
pintando estaba un día, ay,
cuando la musa mía, ay,
me vino a tormentar, ay.

Ay, con dolor pues dejo
empresa tan feliz 
cual es de bellae Nice 
las prendas celebrar, ay.

Quiso que yo pintase, ay,
objeto sobrehumano, ay,
pero lo quiso en vano, ay,
lo tuvo que dejar, ay.

Ay, con dolor pues dejo
empresa tan feliz 
cual es de bellae Nice 
las prendas celebrar, ay.

Conoce la hermosura, ay,
un corazón vagado, ay, 
mas su destin malvado, ay,
Ie impide de centar, ay. 

Ay, con dolor pues dejo
empresa tan feliz 
cual es de bellae Nice 
las prendas celebrar, ay.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
