A Valentines Day song for Mexicans

Anillo de Compromiso [Engagement Ring], by Cuco Sanchez

You can listen to the song here.

Anillo de bodas que puse en tu mano, Anillo que es símbolo de nuestro amor, Que unió para siempre y por toda la vida, A nuestras dos almas delante de Dios.

Hoy vives sufriendo nomás por mi culpa, Perdona lo injusto que fui sin querer, Creyendo que sólo con mucho cariño, Podría darte todo ¡maldita mi fe!

Anillo de compromiso, Cadena de nuestro amor; Anillo de compromiso, Que la suerte quiso que uniera a los dos.

Soy pobre, muy pobre, y tú ya lo has visto, Te he dado miseria, te he dado dolor, Y aunque yo te quiera, qué vale el cariño, Si no puedo hacerte feliz con mi amor.

Si algún día recuerdas al pobre que sueña, Que lucha y se arrastra por querer vivir, Jamás lo maldigas que al fin fue un mendigo, Que quiso elevarse para llegar a ti.

Anillo de compromiso, Cadena de nuestro amor; Anillo de compromiso, Que la suerte quiso que uniera a los dos.

The wedding ring that I put on your hand, A ring that is a symbol of our love, That joined us forever and for all our lives, Our two souls before God.

Today I suffer for my own fault, Forgive my inadvertent unfairness, Believing that only with a lot of my love, Could I give you everything. Damn my fate!

Engagement ring, Chain of our love, Engagement ring, That luck would have joined us together.

I am poor, very poor, as you have seen, I gave you misery, I gave you pain, And though I love you, of what value is that, If my love cannot make you happy?

If some day you remember the poor dreamer, Struggling and crawling to stay alive, Never curse he who at the end was a beggar, Who wanted to rise up to reach you.

Engagement ring, Chain of our love, Engagement ring, That luck would have joined us together.
