For Mom | The Weekly Letra

This one is dedicated to all the beautiful mothers, Happy Mother's Day! (Thank you, Mom!)

Madre Hermosa (Copla)
Juanito Valderrama

Ay, mi mare!, 
como un rayito de luna
regüerto con azahares. 
Mare hermosa, 
vieja de pena por dentro, 
por fuera como una rosa. 
Mare buena, 
con los ojitos de novia
y la cara de azucena. 
¡Qué alegría cuando
le digo a la gente: 
qué guapa la mare mía!

But it's ida y vuelta month, so obviously that won't be happening. Speaking of Oscar and cantes de ida y vulelta, his favorite cante is guajiras.

But back to today's letra

Below is part of the vidalita that Mayte Martin sings on her album Querencia. Apparently it's her adaptation of one by Juan Valderrama.
