American Ballads and Folk Songs
Tres vicios tengo, los tres tengo adoptados: El ser borracho, jugador, y enamorado. Pues (J que he de hacer, si soy el abandonado? Pues, que he de hacer, sera por el amor de Dios.
Pero ando ingrato si con mi amor no quedoj Tal vez otro hombre con su amor se habra jugado. Pues d'que he de hacer, si soy el abandonado? Pues, que he de hacer, sera por el amor de Dios,
Translation
You abandon me, woman, because I am very poor j the misfortune is to be a man of passionate devotion. Then, what am I to do if I am the abandoned one? Well, whatever I am to do will be done by the will of God.
Three vices I have cultivated: gambling, drunkenness, and love. Then what am I to do if I am the abandoned one? Well, whatever I am to do will be done by the will of God.
But I go unhappy, if with my love I cannot remain. Perhaps an­other man has toyed with her love. Then what am I to do if I am the abandoned one? Well, whatever I am to do, will be done by the will of God.
