El bandoler The brigand
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
En el segle dinou, in nineteen century
Amb el nom de Joan Serra with the name of Joan Serra
Es coneix un bandoler is known a brigand,
Per tothom en La Pera. For everybody 'La Pera'.

Li agradava la sang He liked the blood
I el xiprer encara recorda and the cypress still remembers
Els precs que all... Han demanat prayers who have asked there
Pietat, pietat. For piety, piety

"No em mateu, "Don't kill me
Que tinc dos fills I una esposa, I have two children and a wife,
Us dar‚ tot mon diner I'll give you all my money
Per• no em claveu eixa daga. But don't stick me that dagger

No em mateu, Don't kill me,
Us demano per ma mare" I beg it for my mother
"Reseu l'Јltim 'crec en Deu'" "Say your last credo"
"Pietat, pietat" "Piety, piety"

L'endem... Next day,
Davant la Verge del Carme in front of the Verge del Carme
De genolls est... Pregant on his knees he's praying
I a dos ciris enc‚n la flama. And to two wax candles burns the flame.

Per• altre cop But again
Per camins I per muntanyes thru roads and thru mountains
Se senten els forts crits loud screams are heard
De la gent que en La Pera mata. The ones who La Pera kills

"No em mateu, "Don't kill me
Que tinc dos fills I una esposa, I have two children and a wife,
Us dar‚ tot mon diner I'll give you all my money
Per• no em claveu eixa daga. But don't stick me that dagger

No em mateu, Don't kill me,
Us demano per ma mare" I beg it for my mother
"Reseu l'Јltim 'crec en Deu'" "Say your last credo"
"Pietat, pietat" "Piety, piety"

Per•, Joan Serra, But, Joan Serra,
Avui t'ha mancat la sort today you missed your luck
Dos soldats t'han pres ben fort two soldiers have taken you hard
I ara restes entre barrots and now you rest in bars.

L'endem... De bon matЎ Next day, early in the morning
Veu la forca preparada he sees the gallows ready
En La Pera llan‡a un crit La Pera makes a shout
‚s la seva Јltima preg... Ria: it's his last prayer:

"Quan jo sigui ben mort "When I'll be pretty dead
I penjat de l'alta forca and hanging at the high gallows
I defalleixi mon cor and my heart decay
I m'aneu a posar a la fossa, and you go to put me down the moat,
Que algЈ resi una preg... Ria may somebody say a prayer
Davant la Verge del Carme in front of the Verge del Carme
I que dos ciris tinguin flama" and may two wax candles flame"

NingЈ no ho va fer. No one did it.
