Coyolxauhqui Songs

By Mariana Root


In Lak Ech version


Coyolxauhqui*, Coyolxauhqui tú eres mujer
En la luna está tu imagen, tú eres fuerte
Sangramos, damos vida, damos leche y amor
Tu espíritu está conmigo, soy fuerte mujer
Wey-ya-hey-ya, wey-ya-hey-ya, wey ya-hey-ya-hey-ya (x4)


Coyolxauhqui* you are a woman
In the moon is your image, you are strong
We bleed, we give life, we give milk and love
Your spirit is with me, I am a strong woman
*Pronounced Coyo-chow-ki
