Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Cuando floresca el chuño
I was looking for a translation, here is my version:

When chips (potatos) bloom

If your parents hate me,
it is my own damn fault,
if the birds do not sing,
it is because of your absence,
they say you will return,
like the river that runs into the lake.


with you, without you,
When potatoes bloom,
with you, without you,
When potatoes bloom,
Do not say you forgot,
the land where you were born
they say you will return,
like the river that runs into the lake.
