Cantiga 2

Here I have a message
That my boyfriend is coming,
And I’ll go, mother, to Vigo.

I have a message here
That my darling is coming,
And I’ll go, mother, to Vigo.

That my boyfriend is coming,
and he’s safe and sound,
And I’ll go, mother, to Vigo.

That my darling is coming
and he’s sound and safe,
And I’ll go, mother, to Vigo.

’Cause he’s safe and sound
And a friend of the king,
And I’ll go, mother, to Vigo.

That he’s sound and safe
And favored by the king,
And I’ll go, mother, to Vigo.
 
Martin Codax, Latter half of the 13th century
