You've now learned what a cuplé por bulerías is, you've seen the transformation of popular song to cuplé, and today I want to show you one more example. It's Adela la Chaqueta's interpretation of Voy a Perder La Cabeza Por Tu Amor. (I know you'll enjoy her opening and closing dance moves, and if dancing is your thing, stick around because the next two posts will have plenty of that.)

Voy a Perder La Cabeza Por Tu Amor
Manuel Alejandro (music) /Ana Magdalena (lyrics)

Voy a perder la cabeza por tu amor
porque tú eres agua, porque yo soy fuego
y no nos comprendemos.

Yo ya no sé si he perdido la razón
porque tú me arrastras
porque soy un juego de tus sentimientos.

Cuando yo creo que estás en mi poder
tú te vas soltando, te vas escapando
de mis propias manos;
hasta ese día que tú quieres volver
y otra vez me encuentras
enfadado y triste, pero enamorado.

Voy a perder la cabeza por tu amor
como no despierte de una vez por siempre
de este falso sueño,
y al final vea claro, que te estás burlando
que te estás riendo
en mi propia cara de mis sentimientos, 
de mi corazón.

Voy a perder la cabeza por tu amor
si te quiero y quiero de esta forma loca
que te estoy queriendo.

Yo no soy la roca que golpea la ola,
soy de carne y hueso
Y quizás mañana oigas de mi boca:
Vaya usted con Dios

I'm Going to Lose My Mind Over Your Love

I'm going to lose my mind over your love
because you are water, because I am fire
and we don't understand one another.

I don't know if I've gone crazy
because you drag me along
because I'm a game of your feelings.

When I think that you're in my power,
you fly away, you escape
from my very hands
until the day you want to return
and once again you find me
angry and sad, but in love.

I'm going to lose my mind over your love,
if I do not wake once and for all
from this false dream,
and in the end clearly see that you're mocking me
that you're laughing
in my very face at my feelings, 
at my heart.

I'm going to lose my mind over your love, 
yes I love you, and I love In this crazy way
that I'm loving you.

I'm not the rock that hits the wave,
I'm of flesh and blood
And maybe tomorrow you'll hear me say, 
Go with God.

Now watch Adela la Chaqueta with Moraito Chico, "El Niño de la Leo" and Agustín de Pinto on guitar:

You can hear Lolita Flores singing her version here.

In the next post I'll show you cuplés at a juerga (with some dancing) and following that I'll address how to dance to a cuplé. See you soon!
