Q (Frank Staplin) Origins: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico) (50) RE: Lyr Req: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico) 19 Sep 14


The Wikipedia (Spanish) article gives lyrics for "Las chiapanecas." If the song/dance as it is used nowadays in schools is descended from the melody and text discussed above, the change is considerable.

Lyr. Add: LAS CHIAPANECAS
B. L. Fernandez and Juan Arozamena

Soy de Chiapas, tierra linda,
donde todas las mujeres
son valientes y son bonitas,
y buenas pa' los quereres.

Tierra santa de mi sueño;
tus mujeres son bien francas
y quieren con el corazón;
¡Sí, señor!

Y si un mocito se acerca a mí
y muy quedito me dice así:
¡Ay, chaparrita por tu querer,
daría la vida y corazón!

No, no me digas esas cosas;
soy modelo de esposa,
no me vengas a maloriar.

No, no me digas esas cosas;
soy modelo de esposa,
no me vengas a maloriar.
