    Hi folks,


    Please help me tranlation following Spanish lyrics to English;


    La Paloma

    Code:
    Yo soy;
    la paloma errante que vino aqui;
    en busca de un triste nido que yo perdi. 
    Si a tu ventana llega una paloma;
    Tratala con cariño que es mi persona.
    ---
    Ay Chinita que si;
    Ay que dame tu amor;
    Ay que vente conmigo chinita adonde vivo yo.
    Ay chinita que si;
    Ay que dame tu amor;
    tienes que volver tu conmigo chinita
    Pues yo no se olvidar.
    Thanks in advance.

    I am
    the roaming dove that came here
    looking for a sad nest that I lost.
    If at your window a dove arrives
    treat it with tenderness for it is my person

    -
    ay little girl but yes
    ay you give me your love
    ay you come with me little girl to where I live
    ay little girl but yes
    ay you give me your love
    you’ve got to come back with me little girl
    for I cannot forget.


    La Paloma
    was a big hit for Freddy Quinn in Europe back in 1961:

    Hi Frank,


    Thanks for your assistance and link.

    Re:
    Ay que vente conmigo chinita adonde vivo yo.
    ay you come with me .......
    I suppose "venir" is the verb-to-be of "vente". What is the tense of "vente"? 2nd-person, present tense? Thanks.

    vente
    is the imperative singular of
    venirse

    which is approximately the same as "venir"
    venirse means : to come, to come from, to come back.
    (and also to have an orgasm)

    I'm not a Spanish teacher however, so it's a bit of a wild guess,
    but then not too wild ...


    grtz.
    Frank.

    Not wild at all, Frank

    Good job
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)
