Cantiga 6

At the churchyard in Vigo
A lovely body was dancing.
I’m in love.

In Vigo, in the churchyard
A slender body was dancing.
I’m in love.

A lovely body was dancing,
That had never had a boyfriend.
I’m in love.
 
A slender body was dancing,
That had never had a darling.
I’m in love.

That had never had a boyfriend,
Except in the churchyard in Vigo.
I’m in love.

That had never had a darling
Except in Vigo, in the churchyard.
I’m in love.
 
 
Martin Codax, Latter half of the 13th century
