Adelita, 'tis time we remembered
That only one hour more and I must go
To the hills of Sierra Del Prado
For the glory of our Mexico

Oh, Adelita, promise you'll remember
The happy hours that now have long gone by.
Oh, Adelita, we'll share these tender moments
Adelita, it hurts me when you go.

Adelita, the time is here to leave you
Once again now I'll kiss away your tears
In my heart I will hold you forever
And our love, it will live throughout the years.
