Hija mia querida
(My daughter, my dear)

Sephardic, Ladino

Hija mia mi querida
Aman, aman, aman
No te eches a la mar
Que la mar esta enfortuna
Mira que te va llevar

Que me lleve que me traiga
Aman, aman, aman
Siete puntas de hondor
Que m’engluta pexe preto
Para salvar de l’amor
My daughter, my dear
Aman, aman, aman
Don’t throw yourself into the sea
For the sea is stormy
It is going to carry you away

May it take me, may it pull me down
Aman, aman, aman
Seven fathoms deep
May a black fish swallow me up
To save me from love
