La mariposa blanca (The White Butterfly)
Words and Music- Juan V. De la Sierra
Lucero, alumbras la noche oscura con tu amor;
Light’ning bug, you light up
The dark night with your love;
La estrella revela la cuna del Niño Redentor
The star reveals the cradle
Of the Child Redeemer.
¡Ay Mira en la oscuridad un angelito!
Look, in the darkness
There´s a little angel!
Si no fuera por la mariposa blanca,
If it weren´t for the white butterfly,
El derrumbe nos habría atrapao.
(La muerte habríamos encontrao.)
The collapse would have trapped us.
(We would have met our death.)
