Lyrics Galician
*
Un mensaje he recibido,
que viene mi amigo.
E iré, madre, a Vigo
Conmigo tengo un mensaje,
y dice que viene mi amado.
E iré, madre, a Vigo
Que viene mi amigo
y viene sano y vivo.
E iré, madre, a Vigo
Que viene mi amado
y viene vivo y sano.
E iré, madre, a Vigo
Que viene sano y vivo
y del rey amigo.
E iré, madre, a Vigo
Que viene vivo y sano
y del rey favorito.
E iré, madre, a Vigo

A message tells me
that my friend is coming:
and I will go, mother, to Vigo!
A message has told me
that my lover is coming:
and I will go, mother, to Vigo!
Let my friend come,
let him retun alive and safe:
and I will go, mother, to Vigo!
Let my beloved come,
let him return alive and safe:
and I will go, mother, to Vigo!
Let him return alive and safe
and befriended by the king:
and I will go, mother, to Vigo!
Let him return alive and safe
and held in high esteem by the king:
and I will go, mother, to Vigo!
