    Viene de una canción en inglés de Stephen Stills: "Si no puedes estar con la persona a la que amas, ama a la persona con la que estás"

    Great song which reminds me of the '60s, the Monterrey Pop Festival and the flower generation! Those vocals from CSN are unforgettable! I was just a kid but things like that helped bring up my appreciation for good music ;-)

    great song indeed! I recognized it immediately :-)

    The translations provided above are all perfectly correct.

    Here's another, "lyric-friendly" alternative: "si no puedes tener a la persona a quien amas, ama a quien ya tienes"

    Tracking down those great oldies-goldies music videos in You Tube, I found CSN's recording of this same song at Woodstock. It seems that I was wrong about the Monterrey Pop. Anyways, both festivals are landmarks for a whole generation.

    Here's my version
    "Si no puedes tener a la persona amada, confórmate con la que tienes."

    Allana it is always a pleasure to help you with your translations; you are one of the few people that is always polite and say thanks...thought I do this for fun and I'm glad I can help people out there, a nice thank you doesn't hurt
