Guadalajara Musical Theme Lyrics

The lyrics speak of the city with Mexican soul. It mentions its forests, neighborhoods and municipalities from Zapopan, to the rain, and the tolling of the bells, the village of Tlaquepaque with its smells, food, roosters and mariachi. That is, until you reach Lake Chapala and its beautiful sunsets and romantic moonlit nights.

Guadalajara, Guadalajara, …
Guadalajara, Guadalajara, …

You have the soul of provincial
clean smell of morning rose,
to green fresh jara river,
are a thousand doves your hamlet,
Guadalajara, Guadalajara
pure smell of wet earth.

Ay ay ay ay! far Colomitos…
Oh! Twin Brothers eyes water,
Oh! Colomitos unforgettable
unforgettable as evenings
in the rain from the hill
would not let us go to Zapopan.

Ay ay ay ay! Tlaquepaque Pueblito …

Your smelly jars

cooler make sweet tepache
next to the rubbish with mariachi
that in parianes and potteries
rings with sad melancholy.

Ay ay ay ay! Lake Chapala …
