Don't worry, It's not you who I want nothing to do with. In fact, it's not anyone.  It's just today's letra.

¿Y por qué?

Because this week has been all about bulerías,

And today shall be no different.

Here I am in Portland with Ricardo López, and he made my day when he suggested we do bulerías in one of the workshops.  He then put the icing on the cake when he said we should dance to a tema by Joaquin el Zambo...

Yo No Quiero Nada Contigo

Yo no quiero nada contigo 
A puñalaitas me maten
Si es mentira lo que digo
Tradicionál

Yo no quiero nada contigo 
A puñalaitas me maten
Si es mentira lo que digo
Tradicional

I want nothing to do with you
They can stab me to death
If what I say is a lie 
Traditional

On the recording he adds this when repeating the last line...

Compañerita de mis carnes si es mentira lo que digo

Soul mate If what I say is a lie

Translating can be a challenge.  It was hard to portray the correct meaning with the correct sentido for compañera de mis carnes.  I have facebook to thank for that part, and George Caceres, Thank you George.  Leave a comment.

And should you want to join us in the workshops with Ricardo López, there is still time!  You can get all of the info here.
