Soy serranica,
y vengo d'Extremadura.
¡Si me valerá ventura!

Soy lastimada,
en fuego d'amor me quemo;
soy desamada,
triste de lo que temo.

En frío quemo,
y quémome sin mesura.
¡Si me valerá ventura!

English.png English translation

I am a mountain girl,
And I come from Extremadura.
If only fortune would help me!

I am pitiful,
In the fire of love I burn;
I am unloved,
And sad at what I fear;

In the cold I burn,
I burn endlessly.
If only fortune would help me!
