CielitoLindo

"Cielito Lindo" is a popular Mexican song from a Spanish copla, popularized in 1882 by Quirino Mendoza y Cortés (c. 1859–1957). It is roughly translated as "Lovely Sweet One". Although the word "cielo" means sky or heaven, it is also a term of endearment comparable to sweetheart or honey. "Cielito", the diminutive, can be translated as "sweetie"; "lindo" means cute, lovely or pretty. Sometimes the song is known by words from the refrain, "Canta y no llores" or simply the "Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay" song.

Commonly played by mariachi bands, it has been recorded by many artists in the original Spanish as well as in English and other languages. Even the song talks about the "Sierra Morena", a mountain range in the south region of Spain, in recent decades it has come to be widely known as a theme song for Mexico, based in the Spanish background of the country, particularly at international events, like the FIFA World Cup.

The Wiggles and the Mariachi Family sing this song in Cold Spaghetti Western.

Song Lyrics

Spanish:
Ay, ay, ay, ay, canta y no llores
Porque cantando se alegran
Cielito lindo los corazones

De la sierra, morena
Cielito lindo vienen bajando
Un par de ojitos negros
Cielito lindo de contrabando

De la sierra, morena
Cielito lindo vienen bajando
Un par de ojitos negros
Cielito lindo de contrabando

Ay, ay, ay, ay, canta y no llores
Porque cantando se alegran
Cielito lindo los corazones

Ay, ay, ay, ay, canta y no llores
Porque cantando se alegran
Cielito lindo los corazones

Ese lunar que tienes, cielito lindo
Junto a la boca, no se lo des a nadie
Cielito lindo que a mi me toca

Ese lunar que tienes, cielito lindo
Junto a la boca, no se lo des a nadie
Cielito lindo que a mi me toca

Ay, ay, ay, ay, canta y no llores
Porque cantando se alegran
Cielito lindo los corazones

Ay, ay, ay, ay, canta y no llores Porque cantando se alegran Cielito lindo los corazones

In English:
Let me tell you 'bout a Latin guy
'Neath a beautful beautful beautful sky.

You know my brother,
Ooh, what a lover!
All day he strums in his guitar;
But he doesn't get far,
For his senorita loves another!

Play, play your song,
Oh, stop your weeping!
She'll hear your tune, la-la, la-la-la!
So play on while she's sleeping!

I-yi-yi-yi!
Oh, don't you cry, da-doo-da-da!
She'll hear your tune
And come to you soon,
So play on while she's sleeping!

I, yi-yi-yi-yi, yi-yi!
Da-doo-da-doo-da-doo-da, da-doo-da-doo!
I, yi-yi-yi-yi!
Let me confess what I feel for you.

Let me confess that I love you,
Let me profess I adore you;
Senorita, wake up, wake up, wake up,
Hear my serenade of love to you.

I, si-si-si!
Cielito lindo makes a beautiful sky,
I-hi, oh what a guy1
Here I'm singing to her 'neath the beautiful sky,
I-yi!
