Thread Name: Origins: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico)
I agree; the lyrics don't seem to match up to the music's meter at all. Perhaps the person who put these on the Spanish Wikipedia site didn't have the correct melody in mind (much as "Las Chiapanecas" is occasionally and erroneously referred to as the Mexican Hat Dance, which English title actually corresponds to the Guadalajaran "jarabe tapatio")?
