lyrics

Como Anacreonte

Yo, como Anacreonte,
quiero cantar, reír y echar al viento
las sabias amarguras y los graves consejos,
y quiero, sobre todo, emborracharme,
ya lo sabéis... ¡Grotesco!
Pura fe en el morir, pobre alegría
y macabro danzar antes de tiempo.

Antonio Machado(1875-1939)

LIKE ANACREONTE

I, like Anacreonte,
want to sing, smile,
and throw to the wind
the wise bitterness
and sober advice
and I want above all
to get drunk
then you know it grotesque
pure faith in dying, poor happiness
and macabre dancing
before it is time
