****************************************************************

Ya van muriendo mis ilusiones,

Already my illusions are dying

solo queda el recuerdo de ayer,

all thats remains is the memory of yesterday.

Tuve amores, alegrías y sinsabores.

I had loves, pleasures, and distastes,

Y muchas flores que a mi paso deshoje.

And many flowers at my step i unleafed.

Fui dichoso al calor de muchos besos

I was lucky in the heat of many kisses

que deje impresos en labios de mujer;

that I left imprinted on the lips of woman;

hoy mi pobre corazón echo pedazos

today my poor heart made pieces

Solo espera los años que anuncian la vejez.

only awaits the years that announce old age.

Adiós mi juventud perdida,

Goodbye my lost youth,

Años que pasan veloz y que no vuelven mas,

Years that pass quickly and never return again,

pasaran alegres días sobre mi vida,

Happy days they will pass over my life.

pero como aquellos días, jamás.

but like those days, never.


Pasaran alegres días sobre mi vida,

Happy days they will pass over my life.

Pero como aquellos días, jamás

But like those days, never.
