Dear gilles T, David, Susan, and mkduzgoren,
The original title is sometimes called "Durme, Durme," and sometimes "Durme Hermosa Donzella."
Here are the Ladino lyrics:
Durme durme hermosa donzella, Durme, durme sin ansia y dolor
Que tu esclavo que tanto desea, Ver tu sueño con grande amor
Hay dos años que sufre mi alma, Por ti joya mi linda dama
Siente, siente al son de mi guitarra. Siente hermosa mis males cantar.
Sleep, sleep my beautiful, sleep without worry or sorrow
Here is your slave who only wishes to watch over your sleep with the greatest of love
For two year my soul has suffered, for you, my jewel, my beautiful
Listen, feel the sound of my guitar. Listen, my beautiful, to the song of my sorrows.
"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent” (Victor Hugo)
