Chula la Mañana
By Alice Corbin
From “New Mexico Folk-songs”

PRETTY is the morning,
  Pretty is the day.
When the moon comes up
  It is light as day.
      Fortune’s wheel keeps turning!        5
Yes, Fortune has its ups and downs,
  Fortune is a bubble.
It was all for a married woman
  I had my trouble.
      Fortune’s wheel keeps turning!        10
It was eight o’clock at the bridge,
  And nine at Jésus María,
But before I could reach her door,
  I was caught by her fat old tía!
      Fortune’s wheel keeps turning!        15
