Music in the Charlie Chan Movies

I will be posting lyrics to the music
that pops up from time to time as
background in the Chan movies.
This week's movie, The Feathered
Serpent, has two well-known songs:
Cielito Lindo and La Cucaracha.
I have included two different versions
of La Cucaracha, althought there seem
to be so many versions that counting
them would be impossible!
Cielito Lindo
(Quiro Mendoza Y Cortez
& Fernandez)
De la sierra morena
Viene Bajando viene bajando
Un par de ojitos negros
Cielito lindo de contrabando
Ese lunar que tienes
Cielito lindo junto a la boca
No se lo des a nadie
Cielito lindo que a me me toca
Ay ay ay ay
Canta y no lioes
Porque cantando se alegran
Cielito lindo los corazones
La Cucaracha
Una cosa me da risa
Panco Villa sin camisa
Ya se van los carrancitas
Porque vienen las villistas
La cucaracha, la coucaracha
Ya no puede caminar
Porque no tiene, porque le falta
Marihuana que fumar
Para sarapes, Saltillo
Chihuahua par solidados
Para mueres, Jalisco
Para amar, todito lados
La Cucarache
La cucarache, la cucaracha
Ya no puede caminar
Porque no tiene, porque le falta
Marihuana que fumar.
Ya la murio la cucaracha
Ya la lleven a enterrar
Entera quatro zopoltes
Y un raton de sacristan
[The Cockroach
The cockroach, the cockroach
Now he can't go traveling
Because he doesn't have, because he lacks
Marijuana to smoke.
The cockroach just died
And they carried him off to bury him
Among four buzzards
And the sexton's mouse.]
