BARCAROLABARCAROLLE
Martin Codaxtrans. James H. Donalson (from Galician)
Ondas do mar de Vigo,
se vistes meu amigo?
Ai Deus, se verrá cedo!

Ondas do mar levado,
se vistes meu amado?
Ai Deus, se verrá cedo!

Se vistes meu amigo,
o por que sospiro,
Ai Deus, se verra cedo!

Se vistes meu amado,
por quen ei gran cuidado,
Ai Deus, se verrá cedo!
Waves of the sea of Vigo,
say if you've seen my friend,
God grant I see him soon!

Waves of the surging sea,
say if you've seen my love,
God grant I see him soon!

Say if you've seen my friend,
the one I'm sighing for,
God grant I see him soon!

Say if you've seen my love,
the one I worry for,
God grant I see him soon!
