Lyrics (translation by Natalie Feinstein):
I don’t want that cheater
You will never bury me!
If he were made of solid gold
I’d still avert my eyes from him.

I don’t want that cheater
Oh, so fragile is my soul,
It stinks, undignified
My future’s black as coal.

I don’t want that cheater
For my soul rejects that man
I turn to God, I ask, I pray:
Please take away that man.

Ya yuma , how I wish I were
An eagle or a pigeon wild,
For then I could come visit you
And be right by your side.
