Q (Frank Staplin) Lyr Add: Gypsy Dance (Spanish) (16) RE: Lyr Add: Gypsy Dance (Spanish) 29 Sep 14


Thanks for the Wikipedia (Spanish) entry for this Andalusian song, Monique. These are the first lyrics from that entry.
The dance is Andalusian, not Gipsy, but songs/dances from that region are often called "Gipsy" in transcriptions.
I couldn't find the verses in Marin, Cantos populares Españoles

Lyr. Add: EL VITO
Andalusian Dance/song

Con el vito vito viene
con el vito vito va.
Con el vito vito viene
con el vito vito va.
No me mires a la cara
que me pongo colorá.

Una cordobesa fue
a Sevilla a ver los toros
y a la mitad del camino
la cautivaron los moros.

Las solteras son de oro,
las casadas son de plata,
las viudas son de cobre
y las Viejas de hojalata.

Yo no quiero que me mires
que me pongo colorá.

Una vieja vale un real
y una muchacha dos quartos,
y yo como soy tan pobre
me voy a lo más barato.

Con el vito vito viene
con el vito vito va.
Con el vito vito viene
con el vito vito va.
No me jaga usté cosquillas

que me pongo colorá.

The above adaption for song and piano by Fernando J. Obradors in his Canciones Clásicas Españolas.
