Mariachi Lyrics – Cielito Lindo
As performed By: Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán

De la sierra, morena
cielito lindo vienen bajando
Un par de ojitos negros
cielito lindo de contrabando

Ay, ay, ay, ay, canta y no llores
porque cantando se alegran
cielito lindo los corazones

De tu cama a la mía,
cielito lindo no hay mas que un paso

Ahora que estamos solos
cielito mió dame un abrazo

Ay, ay, ay, ay, canta y no llores
Porque cantando se alegran
Cielito lindo los corazones

Ese lunar que tienes, cielito lindo
junto a la boca, no se lo des a nadie
cielito lindo que a mi me toca

Ay, ay, ay, ay, canta y no llores
porque cantando se alegran
cielito lindo los corazones
