A letra por bulerías and a video of Paco de Lucía & Camarón de la Isla.
Tú le estás pidiendo a Dios
que mi madre se muriera
ya mi madre se murió
ya no hay quién te quiera
que menos te voy a querer yo.
You are asking God
that my mother should die
now my mother has died
and there is nobody left to love you
and I'll love you even less.
Today's letra has me dreaming. I wish it had occurred to me a couple of weeks ago while in San Diego when Margot asked to learn a new song. Because this one feels just right for my sobrinas.
I want what it speaks of.
Un puente. Yes, a bridge. And I would make it a magic bridge. A bridge that could take us over a thousand miles in mere minutes. Oh the visits we would have!
Anyway, we can sing it together next time.
For today, I share it with you.
Below find La Llave y La Clave in full with a translation and a video of Arcángel singing it live.
La Llave y La Clave
Tú eres quien tienen la llave
la llave y la clave
de mis melodías
