En la frontera del norte
Vivían dos grandes amigas
María es mexicana
Y Karla es americana.

En la casa de María
Reinaba siempre el amor
Sus padres se amaban tanto
Que no había preocupación
Sus padres se amaban tanto
Que no había preocupación.

Karla tenía dieciocho años
Y cargaba su dolor
Porque sus padres por años
Peleaban ya sin amor.

No llores, amiga mia
Tu tristeza y tu dolor
Convertirán algún día
Tu vida en lindo color
Convertirán algún día
Tu vida en lindo color.

María con sus experiencias
A Karla quiso ayudar
Que estuviera siempre alegre
Y su mundo transformar.

María le aconsejó a Karla
A sus padres comprender
No supieron valorarla
Y por eso es cómo es
No supieron valorarla
Y por eso es cómo es.

Con tanto cruel sufrimiento
Su vida se echó a perder
Un día se fue de su casa
Y ya no quiso volver.

Los padres viendo a su hija
Comenzaron a llorar
Viéndola con tal tristeza
Han decidido cambiar
Viéndola con tal tristeza
Han decidido cambiar
Viéndola con tal tristeza
Han decidido cambiar.

 

Corrido of the Two Best Friends

Along the Mexican border
There lived two best friends
Karla was American
And María was Mexican.

In María’s house
Love reigned supreme
Her parents were so much in love
That life was worry-free
Her parents were so much in love
That life was worry-free.

Karla was 18 years old
And spent her days in tears
Because her loveless parents
Had been fighting now for years.

Don’t cry, my friend, don’t cry
Your sadness and your pain
Will someday help you live your life
In beauty once again
Will someday help you live your life
In beauty once again.

María, with her experience,
Tried to help her friend
And transform her world with happiness
So that her pain would end.

María asked Karla
To understand her mom and dad:
They didn’t know how to appreciate
The blessings that they had
They didn’t know how to appreciate
The blessings that they had.

Because of this cruel torment
Karla’s life got off track
One day she ran away from home
And said she would never come back.

When her parents finally found her
Tears filled up their eyes
Seeing how she had suffered
They decided to change their lives
Seeing how she had suffered
They decided to change their lives
Seeing how she had suffered
They decided to change their lives.
