Original Music Lyrics: "El Coqui"

Original Music Lyrics: El coqui



el coquí, coquí
canta de noche
el coquí, coquí
en el llano, en el bosque
de mi patria, Puerto Rico
en mis sueños
en mi corazón

ah le lo lai
ah le lo lai
ah le lo lai
ah le lo lai

soy como el coquí, el coquí de mi pueblo
que de la montaña arrulla mi pueblo
que canta, canta, canta tan alegre
pero su canto se va, se pierde


sueño despierto con volver a verte
donde la brisa y el olor a tierra envuelve mi mente
el sonido me ayuda cerrar mis ojos
pa’ ti, pa’ ti, pa’ ti recuerdo todo
