Thread Name: Lyr Req: Ay, Linda Amiga (15th c. Spain)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Ay, linda amiga'
You have a translation here but the 2 last lines are missing, so I'll add them

Oh, my beautiful lover who I will never see again,
Exquisite body that brings me death,
There is no love without pain,
Nor pain without grief,
Nor pain so sharp as that of love.
Oh, my beautiful lover who I will never see again,
Exquisite body that brings me death,
Wake me up (lit. get me up), mother, when the sun rises.
I went around/throughout the green fields to look for my love.

Btw, there are typos and miscutings in the lyrics Ed copied and pasted above

Ay Linda Amiga

Ay linda amiga que no vuelvo a verte,
Cuerpo garrido que me lleva la muerte.
No hay amor sin pena, pena sin dolor,
Ni dolor tan agudo como el del amor.

Ay linda amiga que no vuelvo a verte,
Cuerpo garrido que me lleva la muerte.
Levánteme madre al salir el sol.
Fui por los campos verdes a buscar mi amor.
