"New Mexico - Mi Lindo Nuevo Mexico"

"New Mexico - Mi Lindo Nuevo Mexico"

I'm singing a song of my homeland
Most wonderful place that I've seen.
My song cannot fully describe it
I call it land of my dreams.
New Mexico,
Land of the sun
Where yucca blooms
The sunset sighs.
New Mexico,
Your starry nights,
Your music sweet as daylight dies.
My heart returns
It ever yearns
To hear the desert breezes blow,
Your snow, your rain, your rainbows' blend,
I'm proud of my New Mexico.


(Translation)
Yo canto de un pais lindo
Mas bello no he visto yo,
Mi cancion no puede decirlo,
Como mi corazon.
Nuevo Mexico,
Pais del sol
Palmillas floreciendo alli.
Nuevo Mexico,
Tus noches lindas
Traen recuerdos para mi.
Mi corazon
Llora por ti me dice a mi
Te quiero yo.
Tus sierras y tus valles
Son mi lindo Nuevo Mexico.
