[Songlations] English translation of "Mariposa Traicionera" (Traitorous Butterfly) by Mana Songlations
Maná
"MARIPOSA TRAICIONERA"
[Traitorous Butterfly]



Eres como una mariposa
Vuelas y te posas vas de boca en boca
Facil y ligera de quien te provoca

You're like a butterfly
You fly and you rest from mouth to mouth
Quick and easy (...with who provokes you? This sounds odd).


*

Yo soy raton de tu ratonera
Trampa que no mata pero no libera
Vivo muriendo prisionero
Mariposa traicionera
Todo se lo lleva el viento
Mariposa no regreso

I'm the mouse of your mousetrap
Trap that doesn't kill, but doesn't liberate
I live dying a prisoner
Traitorous butterfly
The wind takes everything
Butterfly, I don't return


*

Ay, mariposa de amor,
Mi mariposa de amor
Ya no regreso contigo
Ay, mariposa de amor,
Mi mariposa de amor
Nunca jamas junto a ti

Ay, butterfly of love,
My butterfly of love
I don't return to you
Ay, butterfly of love,
My butterfly of love
Never again next to you


*

Vuela amor, vuela dolor
Y no regreses a un lado
Ya vete de flor en flor
seduciendo a los pistilos
Y vuela cerca del sol
Pa' que sientas lo que es dolor

Fly, love; fly, pain
And don't return to a side
Just leave now, go from flower to flower
Seducing the pistils
And fly near the sun
So you feel what pain is


*

Ay, mujer como haces daño
Pasan los minutos cual si fueran años
Mira estos celos me estan matando

Ay, woman, how you cause harm
Minutes pass like (if they were) years
Look, these jealousies are killing me


*

Ay, mujer que facil eres
Abres tu alitas, musculos de colores
Donde se posan tus amores
Mariposa traicionera
Todo se lo lleva el viento
Mariposa no regreso

Ay, woman, how easy you are
Open your wings, colorful muscles
Where your lovers rest
Traitorous butterfly
The wind takes everything
Butterly, I don't return


*

Ay, mariposa de amor,
Mi mariposa de amor
Ya no regreso contigo
Ay, mariposa de amor,
Mi mariposa de amor
Nunca jamas junto a ti

Ay, butterfly of love,
My butterfly of love
I don't return to you
Ay, butterfly of love,
My butterfly of love
Never again next to you


*

Vuela amor, vuela dolor
Que tengas suerte en tu vida
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay dolor
Yo te llore todo un rio
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay amor
Tu te me vas a volar

Fly, love; fly, pain
I wish you luck in life (Literally: That you may have luck in your life)
Ay, ay, ay, ay, pain
I cried a whole river for you
Ay, ay, ay, ay, love
You're going to fly from me
