Track 6:

Hombre Del Mar (Man of the Sea)

Lyrics
El era un hombre del mar y ella sabía cantar.
Cuando el la escucho, el marinero se enamoró
Ella sabía que el sería un marido tan fiel.
Cuando le aceptó, el marinero lloró.

No se podían cazar: el regresaba al mar.
Esa noche el radio avisó que el barco de el naufragó.


Choro
Para ya de cantar y ponte a llorar,
el hombre que sabías amar desapareció en el mar.

No hay ninguna razón de escapar con una canción -
El amor solo te puedo robar la belleza que tiene el mar.

Cuando ella paró de llorar ya no pudo cantar.
Sin consuelo decidió resignar y entregarse al fin en el mar

Ella no sabía nadar y nadie le pudo salvar.
Esa noche el radio avisó que la cantante, desapareció..

Choro
Para ya de llorar y ponte a cantar
La mujer que sabías amar te viene a verte en el mar.

No hay ninguna razón de escapar con una canción -
El amor solo te puedo regresar la belleza que tiene el mar.

English Version

He was a man of the sea and it was well known she could sing.
When on leave, he first listened to her, the sailor fell completely in love.
She was convinced that he would always be loyal to her.
When she accepted his proposal,
The Sailor broke down and wept.

They could not yet tie the knot, he was to return to the sea
That evening the radio announced
that her fiancee's ship disapeared.
Stop your singing now and go ahead and start weepig
for the man you love has disapeared in the sea.
There is no good reason to escape with a song;
your love could have only been taken away
by the beauty found in the sea.

When she finally stopped weeping, she was
never again able to sing.
Without consolation she resigned to
surrender herself to the sea.

But she never knew how to swim and there was noone to save her.
That evening the radio announced
that the singer had disapeared.

Stop your weeping now and begin singing,
for the woman that you loved has come for you in the sea.
There is no good reason to escape with a song;
your love could have only been returned to you
by the beauty found in the sea.
