Las Mañanitas
Traditional Spanish Song Lyrics with English Translation


This song is available on La Familia Peña-Govea's 
"Las Mañanitas: Latino Folk Songs"



Spanish Lyrics:

Estas son las mañanitas
que cantaba el rey David
A las muchachas bonitas,
Te las cantamos así.
Despierta, mi bien, despierta,
Mira que almaneció,
Ya los pajarillos cantan,
La luna ya se metió.

Qué linda está la mañana,
en que vengo a saludarte,
Venimos todos con gusto
y placer a felicitarte,
El día en que tú naciste,
nacieron todas las flores,
El la pila del bautismo,
cantaron los ruiseñores,

Ya viene amaneciendo,
ya la luz el día nos dio,
Levántate de mañana,
Mira que ya almaneció.

Quisiera ser solecito
para entrar por tu ventana
Y darte los "Buenos Días"
Acostadita/o en tu cama,
Quisiera ser un San Juan,
quisiera ser un San Pedro
Para venirte a cantar
con la música del cielo,

Con jasmines y flores
hoy te vengo a saludar
Hoy por ser día de tu santo,
te venimos a cantar.

English Translation

This is “Las Mañanitas”
that King David sang
to the pretty girls;
As we sing them to you.
Wake up, my love, wake up.
Look at what has dawned,
Already the little birds are singing,
The moon already went in.

How pretty is the morning
In which I come to greet you.
We all came with pleasure
and joy to congratulate you.
On the day you were born
All the flowers were born.
At the baptismal font
The nightingales sang.

It is starting to be dawn,
The day has given us light.
Get up in the morning,
Look at what has already dawned.

I would like to be a little sunlight
To go in through your window
And tell you “Good Morning”
While you’re lying in your bed.
I would like to be Saint John,
I would like to be Saint Peter,
In order to come sing to you
with music from heaven.

With jasmine and flowers
Today I come to greet you,
Today being your Saint’s day,
We came to sing to you.
