ADIO QUERIDA (Judaeo-Spanish)

Tu madre cuando te parió
y te quitó al mundo
corazón ella no te dió
para amar segundo

Estribillo
Adio, adio querida
no quero la vida,
me l' tomastes tu.
Adio, adio querida
no quero la vida,
me l'amargastes tu.

Va buxcate otro amor
aharva otras puertas,
aspera otro ardor,
que para mi sos muerta.

Adio...
FAREWELL BELOVED

When your mother gave birth to you
And "released" you into the world,
She didn't give you a heart
To love another

Chorus
Farewell, farewell beloved,
I don't want this life (lit. "the"),
You took it away from me,
Farewell, farewell beloved,
I don't want this life
You made it bitter (lit. "to me")

Go, look for another love,
Knock down other doors,
Hope/Wait for another ardor,
As you're dead for me.
