Original English translation

Traigo un dolor tan inmenso que no puedo andar derecho
Que no puedo andar derecho, traigo un dolor tan inmenso

Mi vida solo es infierno
Yo no sé lo que me has hecho
El corazón indefenso, se quiere salir del pecho

Yayayay jarochita, que muero por ti, si tú me quisieras, me hicieras feliz

Yaaaaayayayay, que yo quisiera, que usted se volviera nona y que yo me la comiera
Madurita, madurita y que del palo se cayera


Tierra de la Santa Cruz, tierra cálida y galana
Tierra cálida y galana, tierra de la Santa Cruz

Tus faros se llenan de luz
Mi _____
Orgullo de Veracruz
De la nación mexicana

Yayayay jarochita me muero por ti, si tu me quisieras, me hicieras feliz

Yaaaaayayayay, que cosa? tan fea, que se sube al palo, y se zarandea, pone su huevito y luego se afea
Se mete al hoyito, para que no la vean
Hasta ser domingo… porque está muy fea
Mírese al espejo, para que lo crea

Yayayaya jarochita me muero por ti, si tu me quisieras, me hicieras feliz
Yayayaya jarochita me muero por ti, si tu me quisieras, me hicieras feliz
Yayayayayaiiiiii


I have got an immense pain, that does not allow me to stand straight
That does not allow me to stand straight, I have got such an immense pain

My life feels like it is intense
I do not know what you have done to me
The helpless heart, wants to come out of the chest

Yayayay jarochita, I am dying for you, if you would love me, you would make me happy

Yaaaaayayayay, I would like, that you would become nona and that I could eat you
Ripe, very ripe, and that from the stick you would fall

Land of Santa Cruz, warm and elegant
Warm and elegant land, land of Santa Cruz

Your headlights are full of light
My... An honour from Veracruz
Of the Mexican nation

Yayayay jarochita, I am dying for you, if you would love me, you would make me happy

Yaaaaayayayay, what an ugly thing, that goes up the stick then shakes, puts its egg and then spoils
It goes into the hole, so that it is not seen
Until Sunday… because she is very ugly
Look at yourself in the mirror, so that you believe it

Yayayay jarochita, I am dying for you, if you would love me, you would make me happy
Yayayay jarochita, I am dying for you, if you would love me, you would make me happy
Yayayayayaiiiiii
