alas the english translation doesnt fit to the song- there are English lyrics ...somewhere.
My mum did it about 30 yrs ago and goes on about it every Christmas. That site that MKGnearlyimmaculateconception found has the music on so I got that for her last night. I am surrounded by Mexicans over here so she has been talking about it non stop - they of course only know the song in Spanish.

Oh this is ringing bells with me - I played that song on the guitar at my first school concert when I was about 7 or 8 ... we are talking a LONG time ago now (35 years?) .... and the kids' TV in the background is not helping me concentrate, but .....

Lodging I beg you good man in the name of heaven
My wife is weary she says she can go no farther
....................
Long have we travelled, have mercy on us, good man
God will reward you if you will give shelter to her....


If any more comes back to me, I'll let you know!

My mother could well have been your teacher cos she did it with her class!

A few more lines dredged from my memory!

Innkeeper: There is no room in this place
For any stranger
My house is full...
...................
...................
...................
All of your pleading is vain
So go away, let us have our peace.

I just can't remember any more - I have tried! The annoying thing is I only threw that guitar music away in a decluttering session in the past year or two. So .... where did your Mum teach?

Lodgings I beg you good man in the name of heaven
