Tleycantimo choquiliya
Mis prasedes, mi apisión.

Dejal to el llando crecida,
miral to el mulo y el buey.
Ximoyollali, mi rey.
Tlein mitztolinia, mi vida?

No sé por qué deneis pena,
tan lindo cara de rosa.
Nocpiholotzin, niño hermosa,
nochalchiuh, naxoquena.

Jesós de mi goraçón,
no lloreis, mi pantasía.

English.png English translation

We sing to you, little flower,
My pleasures, my passion.

Leave thou the growing cry,
Behold the mule and the ox.
Take comfort, my king.
What bothers you, my beloved?

I know not what pains you,
Such beautiful rosy face,
Noble Lord, handsome child,
My gem, my white-plumed bird.

Jesus of my heart,
Do not cry, my fantasy.
