Cha! Cha!
Chile verde me pediste.
Chile verde te dare.
Vama nos para la huer ta con al la te lo cortare.
(Tell them what it means then)
"You want green peppers? (Si!)
I'll give you green peppers.
Come out to the garden." ("Coplas!")

[Chorus:]
Lai, lai, lai, lai, hum de lai, lai, lai, hum de lai, lai, lai, lai.
Lai, lai, lai, hum de lai, lai, lai, hum de lai, lai, lai

Dice que los de fu casa.
Ninguno me puede ver.
Diles que no basta el agua que al cabo lahan do beber.
"Tell your parents not to muddy the water around us."
("Porque?")
"They may have to drink it soon!" ("Coplas!")

[Chorus]

La mula que yo mente la monto hoy mi compadre.
Eso a mi no me importa pues yo la mon te primero. ("Oivey!")
"Ah, so! You are surprised I speak your language.
You see, I was educated in your country: at U. C. R. A." ("Coplas!")

[Chorus]

La noche que me case.
No pudde dormirme un rato.
Por estar toda la noche corriendos detras de un gato. (Meow!)
Me dejiste que fue un gato.
Que entro por tu balcon.
Yo no visto gato prieto con sombrero why pantalon!
"On my wedding night, I did not sleep a wink. ("Porque?")
I spent the whole night chasing a cat that had come in over the balcony. (Meow!)
Wearing a sombrero and long pants!" ("Coplas!")

[Chorus]
