In honor of more bulerías starting in May...

Bulerías
José Soto Barea

Me pongo a comer y no como
me acuerdo de tus acciones
y con la comida me ahogo

I go to eat, and I don't eat
I remember what you did,
And I choke on my food

I've heard this sung as a bulerías and a soleá por bulerías.  Here is a sample from Fernanda and Bernarda de Utrera.

You've heard me say it before, translating is a challenge.  Let me know if you have any thoughts in the comments below.
