Lyrics

Lyrics Direct Translation Poetic Translation
Tres morillas me enamoran I loved three Moorish girls Three Moorish girls I fell for
En Jaén: In Jaén: In Jaén:
Axa y Fátima y Marién. Axa, Fátima, and Marién. Axa, Fátima, and Marién.
Tres morillas tan garridas Three Moorish girls so lovely Three young Moorish girls were shaded
Iban a coger olivas Were going to pick olives In the olive grove, unaided:
Y hallábanlas cogidas And found themselves fucked They were picked instead and sated
En Jaén: In Jaén: In Jaén:
Axa y Fátima y Marién. Axa, Fátima, and Marién. Axa, Fátima, and Marién.
Y hallábanlas cogidas And found themselves fucked They were picked instead and sated
Y tornaban desmayadas And they passed out And returned with colors faded
Y los colores perdidos And lost their color And their virtue desecrated
En Jaén: In Jaén: In Jaén:
Axa y Fátima y Marién. Axa, Fátima, and Marién. Axa, Fátima, and Marién.
Tres moricas tan lozanas Three Moriscas so lush, Three Moriscas lush and lavish,
Tres moricas tan lozanas Three Moriscas so lush Three Moriscas lush and lavish
Iban a coger mazanas Were going to pick apples Apple trees went out to ravish
En Jaén: In Jaén: In Jaén:
Axa y Fátima y Marién. Axa, Fátima, and Marién. Axa, Fátima, and Marién.
