Malagueña Salerosa

The classic version of Malagueña is plaintive and romantic. A poor young man is in love with a beautiful girl from Malaga, Spain. He has nothing to offer by his heart, pure and good and his hands, willing to work. This delicate love song, whose roots lie in forms of social behavior which existed a thousand years ago, seems to call up subliminal memories and courtly instincts of a time centuries past, whenever it is played.

The song is that of a man telling a woman how beautiful she is, and how he would love to be her man, but that he understands her rejecting him for being too poor. In Kill Bill a wild, rocking Americanized version (Chingon) so excited Tarantino that he developed a credit sequence based on it. Malagueña is an example of assimilation writ large.

Mexican composer Nicandro Castillo questions the validity of that authorship. He said “…La Malagueña, which in reality, like La Guasanga or El Sacamandú, were known many years before, and should be part of the public domain. "

Malagueña Salerosa


Huasteca que linda eres

Que bonitos ojos tienes,
Debajo de esas dos cejas (X2)
Que bonitos ojos tienes
Ellos me quieren mirar,
Pero si tu no los dejas, (X2)
Ni siquiera parpadear

Malagueña, salerosa,
Besar tus, labios quisiera, (X2)
Malagueña salerosa
Y decirte, niña hermosa,
que eres linda, y hechicera, (X2)
como el candor de una rosa

Si por pobre me desprecias
Yo te concedo razón (X2)
Si por pobre me desprecias
Ingrata me traicionabas,
Cuando de ti estaba ausente, (X2)
De mi pasión te burlabas

Malagueña, salerosa,
Besar tus labios quisiera, (X2)
malagueña salerosa
Y decirte, niña hermosa,
Que eres linda y hechicera, (X2)
Como el candor, de una rosa (X2)

Huasteca, you are beautiful

What pretty eyes you have,
Under those two eyebrows (X2)
What pretty eyes you have
They want to watch me,
But if you do not leave it, (X2)
Not even blink

Malagueña salerosa,
I like to kiss your lips (X2)
malagueña salerosa
And to tell you, beautiful girl,
you are beautiful, and sorceress (X2)
like the candor of a rose

If you despise me for being poor
I grant you reason (X2)
If you despise me for being poor
Ungrateful you betray me,
When I was absent, (X2)
You make fun of my passion

Malagueña salerosa,
I want to kiss your lips, (X2)
malagueña salerosa
And to tell you, beautiful girl,
They're cute and sorceress (X2)
Like the candor of a rose (x2)
