Spanish Music – Joan Manuel Serrat – Penélope

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9wVM2ugwDA]

Penélope, con su bolso de piel marrón
Y sus zapatos de tacón, y su vestido de domingo
Penélope, se sienta en un banco en el andén
Y espera que llegue el primer tren meneando el abanico

Dicen en el pueblo que un caminante paró su reloj
Una tarde de primavera
“Adiós amor mío no me llores, volveré antes que
De los sauces caigan las hojas. Piensa en mí, volveré a por ti”

Pobre infeliz, se paró tu reloj infantil
Una tarde plomiza de abril cuando se fue tu amante
Se marchitó en tu huerto hasta la última flor
No hay un sauce en la calle Mayor para Penélope

Penélope, tristes a fuerza de esperar, sus ojos, parecen brillar
Si un tren silba a lo lejos. Penélope
Uno tras otro los ve pasar, mira sus caras, les oye hablar
Para ella son muñecos.

Dicen en el pueblo que el caminante volvió
La encontró en su banco de pino verde
La llamó: “Penélope mi amante fiel, mi paz, deja ya
De tejer sueños en tu mente, mírame, soy tu amor, regresé”

Le sonrió, con los ojos llenitos de ayer
No era así su cara ni su piel. “Tú no eres quien yo espero”
Y se quedó, con el bolso de piel marrón
Y sus zapatitos de tacón, sentada en la estación
