Bulerías (a coletilla) 
Popular

Son los toreros
los que se amarran
cinta en el pelo

They are the bullfighters
those who tie
ribbon in their hair

A note about this coletilla: Ricardo explained to me that bullfighters have a ponytail which they hold in place with a ribbon, and when they retire they cut the ponytail off. 

Watch Pastora Galván dance while Tomás de Perrate sings it here at 2 minutes 45 seconds.

And, here are three other bulerías snippets for you to enjoy:

One (Marco Flores)

Two (a Japanese dancer, La Yunko)

Three (Estefania Aranda, one of our bulerías teachers on the Flamenco Tour to Jerez)
