I just love malagueñas, so here you go:


Serían las dos de la noche.
Vino mi hermano a llamarme,
¿Por qué no te levantas hermano mío?
Que se ha muerto nuestra madre
y nos quedamos solitos.

It must have been two o'clock in the morning.
My brother came calling,
Get up. 
Why won't you get up, Brother?
Our mother has died,
and we are alone.

I highly recommend listening to La Niña De La Puebla sing it here accompanied by Manolo Sanlúcar and recorded on this album.
