Arroz con leche.
Me quiero casa
con una señorita de la capital
que sepa coser que sepa bordar
que sepa abrir la puerta para ir a jugar.
Con ésta sí con ésta no, con esta señorita me caso yo.

Yo soy la viudita del barrio del Rey.
Me quiero casar y no sé con quien.
Con esta sí. Con esta no.
Con esta señorita me caso yo.


Rice with milk
I want to get married
with a lady from the capital
that knows how to sew that knows how to embroider
that knows how to open the door to go out and play.
With this one yes with this one no, with this lady I will marry.

I am the little widow from the king’s neighborhood.
I want to get married, but I don’t know to whom.
With this one yes. With this one no.
With this lady will I marry.
