El Amor del Jibarito
Trio Vegabajeño Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Despierta borinquenita de mi vida
Y escucha la cancion de nuestro amor,
Que vengo lleno de ensuenos y de ilusiones
Porque ayer me entregaste tu corazon.

Escucha dulce amor mio mis canciones,
En ellas pongo mi alma y mi emocion,
El alma del jibarito fuerte y contento
Porque mi terrunito cultivo yo.

Alli donde brilla la luna se ve mi bohio,
En el tengo yo un jardincito de lindos rosales
Y todas las mananitas las aves cantan sus madrigales
Y el rubio sol de Borinquen pinta de rosa mis cafetales
Y el rubio sol de Borinquen pinta de rosa mis cafetales

Alli en aquel rinconcito tan querido
Haremos nuestro nido de ilusion,
Chiquito pero muy limpio de falsedades
Y los dos le daremos gracias a Dios.

Que lindas son tus montanas y praderas
Pedazos de mi terruno tropical
En donde la hermosa luna de Puerto Rico
Tiende un collar de perlas sobre el palmar.

Alli donde brilla la luna se ve mi bohio,
En el tengo yo un jardincito de lindos rosales
Y todas las mananitas las aves cantan sus madrigales




Y el rubio sol de Borinquen pinta de rosa mis cafetales
Y el rubio sol de Borinquen pinta de rosa mis cafetales.

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Trio Vegabajeño's song, El Amor del Jibarito, are a love letter to the land of Puerto Rico and to a beloved partner. The song begins with an address to "borinquenita," a term of endearment for a Puerto Rican woman. The singer invites her to listen to "the song of our love," which he says is filled with dreams and hopes, because she has given him her heart. The singer then asks his love to listen to his songs, which he pours his soul and emotions into. He identifies himself as a "jibarito," a term for a farmer or peasant of the Puerto Rican countryside, who is strong and content because he cultivates his own land.


The second verse describes the singer's bohio, or small rural home. He describes a garden full of beautiful roses, where every morning the birds sing their songs. The sun "paints" his coffee fields with a rosy glow. He shares that he and his lover will make a home of their own in this cherished place, free of falsehoods, and will give thanks to God. In the final verse, the singer celebrates the beauty of Puerto Rico's mountains and prairies, which he regards as pieces of his beloved tropical land. He speaks of the moon casting a necklace of pearls on the palm trees, and he repeats the description of his bohio and garden from the previous verse.
