we were doing palmas with Pedro.
It's something we do when we come to Jerez.
Naturally people had many questions
Someone asked to do some palmas por alegrías
... since we'd been dancing alegrías with Mercedes.
Pedro talked about las alegrías de Córdoba. He mentioned the letra about the platero.
Then tonight something really wonderful happened
We went to la Peña la Buleria to hear El Nino de la Fragua.
He sang por tangos,
He sang por alegrias, and the first letra was the one about the platero.
So, aqui tienes,
Alegrías de Córdoba
Pregúntale al platero
que cuánto vale
el ponerte en los zarcillos
Ask the silversmith
how much would it cost
to carve my initials
in your earrings
This is all very appropriate as I'm headed to Córdoba on Sunday. Yay!
