Here's a signature letra sung by El Chozas. Melchora Ortega sang it to us during our private show on the Flamenco Tour to Jerez.


¿Por qué dice esta mujer
que yo he dormido contigo sin haber dormido?
porque quiere de volverme loco
o que yo pierda el sentido

Why does this woman say
that I slept with you without having slept?
because she wants to drive me crazy
or for me to lose it

I had a difficult time translating this part of the last line, pierda el sentido. I was debating between lose consciousness, become senseless, pass out, and ultimately I chose lose it. What do you think works best?
