Spanish Love Songs Translated to English – Canción de Otoño by Jose Luis Perales

Music is one of the most beautiful and enjoyable ways to practice Spanish throughout the day. Today we will review the song Cancion de Otoño by the Spanish singer José Luis Perales, a romantic melody that invites us to reflect about the way time passes by.

On this page, you’ll find a video you can use to listen to the song. Here’s the process I suggest you follow:

Step 1:

Play the song and listen to it WITHOUT reading the lyrics. Try to understand as much as possible.

Step 2:

Play the song again, and read the lyrics in Spanish only.

Step 3:

Play the song again, and pause it when needed in order to read the lyrics in Spanish and English when it’s required.

Step 4:

Play the song one more time, try to understand as much as possible and compare it with your first try.

Step 5:

Continue listening to the same song at least 1 time per day for a week so you can continue to practice your Spanish comprehension skills (and your dance moves!)

Here’s the song:

Canción de Otoño por José Luis Perales
Autumn Song by José Luis Perales

Como sopla el viento en las ventanas
The way the wind blows in the windows

Como llueve hoy
The way it rains today

Como está la calle de vacía
The way the street is empty

Como muere el sol
The way the sun dies

Estos días grises del otoño
These gray days of autumn

Me ponen triste
They make me sad

Y al calor del fuego de mi hoguera
And in the heat of the fire of my bonfire

Te recuerdo hoy
I remember you today

 

Te recuerdo hoy
I remember you today

A ti, que eres mi vida entera
You, who are my whole life

La brisa de primavera, la claridad
The spring breeze, the clarity

A ti, que sufres cuando me esperas
To you, who suffers when you wait for me

Que miras a las estrellas
That you look at the stars

Y que suspiras por mí
And that you sigh for me

 

Como arrastra el viento aquellas hojas
How the wind drags those leaves

Como llueve hoy
How it rains today

Y que torpe vuela por el cielo
And how clumsy it flies through the sky

Ese gorrión
That sparrow

Se han quedado mudos esos nidos
Those nests have remained silent

De golondrinas
Of swallows

Y sentado al borde de la noche
And sitting on the edge of the night

Te recuerdo hoy
I remember you today

 

Te recuerdo hoy
I remember you today

A ti, que eres mi vida entera
To you, who are my whole life

La brisa de primavera, la claridad
The spring breeze, the clarity

A ti, que sufres cuando me esperas
To you, who suffers when you wait for me

Que miras a las estrellas
That you look at the stars

Y que suspiras por mí
And that you sigh for me

 

Los paraguas pasan lentamente
Umbrellas pass slowly

Frente a mi balcón
In front of my balcony

El reloj se escucha como siempre
The clock sounds like always

En el comedor
In the dining room

Estos días grises del otoño
These gray days of autumn

Me ponen triste
They make me sad

Y al calor del fuego de mi hoguera
And in the heat of the fire of my bonfire

Te recuerdo hoy
I remember you today

 

Te recuerdo hoy
I remember you today

A ti, que eres mi vida entera
To you, who are my whole life

La brisa de primavera, la claridad
The spring breeze, the clarity

A ti, que sufres cuando me esperas
To you, who suffers when you wait for me

Que miras a las estrellas
That you look at the stars

Y que suspiras por mí
And that you sigh for me

Como sopla el viento en las ventanas
The way the wind blows in the windows

Como llueve hoy
The way it rains today
