Toque su guitara, ándale...

(Guitar intro.) Cha! Cha!

Chile de verde me pediste. Chile de verde te daré.
Vamanos para la huerta, cuando allá te lo cortaré.(Tell 'em what it means kid)
"You want green peppers? (Si!) I'll give you green peppers. Come out to the garden." ("Coplas!")

Chorus:
Ay la la lai, Ay lai, la, la lai, Ay lai, lai. lai. lai
[hum de lai, lai, lai, lai. Lai, lai, lai, hum de lai, lai, lai, hum de lai, lai, lai]

Dice que los de tu casa ninguno me puede ver. Díles que no fango al agua que al cabo lo han de beber.
"Tell your parents not to muddy the water around us." ("Porqué?") "They may have to drink it soon!" ("Coplas!")

(Chorus)

La mula que yo monté, la monta hoy mi compadre. Eso a mi no me importa pues yo la monté primero. ("Oivey!")
"Ah, so! You are surprised I speak your language. You see, I was educated in your country? at U. C. R. A." ("Coplas!")

(Chorus)

La noche que me casé. No pudé dormirme un rato.
Por estar toda la noche corriendo detras de un gato. (Meow!)
Me dejiste que fué un gato - el que entró por tu balcón.
Yo no he visto gato prieto con sombrero y pantalón!
"On my wedding night, I did not sleep a wink. ("Porqué?")I spent the whole night chasing a cat that had come in over the balcony?. (Meow!) wearing a sombrero and long pants!" ("Coplas!")

(Chorus)
