Lyrics

Spanish: Los muñequitos

En la tortura de vivir sin canción,
Mi alma sin fe, rompió a llorar,
La dulce infancia, blanca flor de ilusión
Hoy con dolor, vuelvo a evocar...
Pobres... están aún en un rincón,
Ellos... muñequitos de cartón,
Pobres muñequitos que contemplo
Con ternura y emoción.
 
Jueguen muñequitos,
Bailen, salten como ayer,
Que hoy mi tristeza
Necesita del recuerdo.
Jueguen muñequitos,
Bailen, salten otra vez,
Como en la infancia
Que revive mi emoción.
 
Vuelvan a brindarme esa alegría,
Para ahogar la pena mía,
Que hoy me quema el corazón.
Jueguen muñequitos,
Bailen, salten como ayer,
Que hoy me quema el corazón.

English: The Little Dolls

In the torture of living without a song,
my faithless soul broke into tears.
Today, with grief, I evoke again
the sweet childhood, white flower of hope.
Poor... they’re still on a corner,
they... cardboard little dolls,
poor little dolls I contemplate
with tenderness and emotion.

Play, little dolls,
dance, jump like yesterday,
because today my sadness
needs memories.
Play, little dolls,
dance, jump again,
like in that childhood
my emotion relives.

Give me that joy again
to drown this sorrow of mine
that today burns my heart.
Play, little dolls,
dance, jump like yesterday,
because today my heart is burning.
