Éste es un corrido
Que tiene un poquito de amor,
Puede ser como Romeo y Julieta.
Los dos murieron por amor…

Juan y Laura se conocieron,
Y se vieron en una pachanga.
La pachanga tenía rucas,
Juan veía nadamás a Laura…

Desde cuando Juan
No pensaba en otras,
Sólo en su negra chulita,
Para los próximos días…

Juan le llevaba rosas
A su departamento
Donde siempre se enojaba,
Nadamás de ver a Pedro…

Pedro era un hombre simple
Que hacía su trabajo.
Laura no podía ver a Juan
Por lo que había pasado…

Pedro es el padre de Laura,
No le gusta ver a su hija
Con un hombre de la calle.
La calle es peligrosa pasión…

Al oír eso, Laura se fue
Por un tiempo. No estaba
Con su amor Romeo.
Laura estaba como loca…

Que Juan ya no estaba.
Juan se había ido pronto.
Laura no sabía que Juan
Estuvo en un accidentito…

Laura esperó, perdió la razón,
No pudo más con su amor,
Y se dio un balazo
En el centro del corazón…

Los dos murieron por amor.

 

Juan and Laura

This is a corrido
With a little bit of love,
Like Romeo and Juliet.
Both of them died for love…

The night Juan first met Laura,
They were at a wild party.
Lots of chicks were there,
But Laura was all he could see…

There was no one else
From that moment on.
Just his pretty baby,
She was everything to Juan…

He went to her apartment
And brought her roses there,
But every time, he got mad
When he saw Pedro there…

Pedro was a simple man
Who did his job each day.
He wouldn’t let Laura see Juan,
He tried to keep her away…

Pedro was Laura’s father,
And he didn’t want to see
His daughter with that kind of guy,
A homeboy from the streets…

So Laura went away,
She left her Romeo.
It was only for a little while,
But it killed her to have to go…

And what she didn’t know yet
Was that her love was gone.
While they were apart, an ‘accident’
Took away her Juan…

Laura was losing her mind,
She couldn’t live without love,
And a shot straight through the heart
Sent her to heaven above…

Both of them died for love.
