" Las Mananitas "  I seen a video of Eliseo Robles singing this song to his father.  I was wondering if anybody knew the lyrics the way he sang them.  I hope someone can help.  Thanks, Juan

If this is the video you are referring to, I believe these are the lyrics:

Qué linda está la mañana, en que vengo a saludarte.
Venimos todos con gusto y placer a felicitarte.
El día en que tú naciste, te llevaron a bautizar.

Y el señor cura te dijo, "Eliseo te has de llamar."

Entre jasmines y flores este día voy a adornar.

Hoy por ser día de tu cumpleaños te venimos a cantar.

 

Quisiera ser un San Juan, quisiera ser un San Pedro.
Para venirte a cantar con la música del cielo.

Ya viene amaneciendo, ya la luz del día nos dio.
Levántate de mañana, mira que ya amaneció.

Thanks, that is the one I was referring to.  Much appreciated....Y el señor cura te dijo  was the line I couldn't figure out.  I've never even heard that before, señor cura.  What does that mean by the way.   Again thanks for taking time to post the lyrics.-- Juan

El señor cura is the priest. Cura has other meanings but in this context it's the priest.

You're welcome, Juan.  It is an interesting version of the song, with different words and a slightly different melody.  Ricardo is right -- el cura means priest.  (La cura would be the cure, treatment.)  So the lyric in question would be something like: "The day you were born, they brought you to be baptized.  The priest told you, Eliseo you must be called."

Thank you Ricardo and Parrandero for your responses.  I was looking for a version to sing to my mom for her birthday and I ran across this one.  The lyrics sounded good to me and now that I know what everthing means it makes sense.  Again thanks--Juan

Thanks for the question juan and thanks again Parrandero for the meaning. Its important when you sing a song to know the meaning and to sing the words right. Should some one ask after the song but most of all the meaning of the song and how the artist put the words together. Great to sing to a father , tio, etc. I never heard it but Plan to Use It Now.
