Lyrics Direct Translation Poetic Translation
Caballeros de Alcal? Knights of Alcal?, Knighted nobles of Alcal?,
Entrastes a facer presa You entered in to take prey. You came here to hunt your quarry,
Et fallastes un morillo You missed a Moorish man But you missed a Moorish fellow
Entre Estrepona y Marbella. Between Estrepona and Marbella. Close to Estrepona and Marbella.
