M’amor, eu atendo

Poem (Canso): 

M’amor, eu atendo,
Me da gran coidado.
Magdalena, vos amo!

Morria, vos digo,
Se no lh’ é comigo.
Magdalena, vos amo!

Me da gran coidado
Quant’ ei alongado.
Magdalena, vos amo!

Se no lh’est comigo
Ten nuevo amigo.
Magdalena, vos amo!

Quant’ ei alongado
Mi lhe á errado.
Magdalena, vos amo!

Ten nuevo amigo,
Nunca vai comigo.
Magdalena, vos amo!

Translation: 

My love, I wait upon you,
And you give me great worry.
Magdalena, I love you!

I will die, I tell you,
If you do not come with me.
Magdalena, I love you!

You give me great worry,
When I am far away.
Magdalena, I love you!

Since you will not come with me,
You (must) have a new lover.
Magdalena, I love you!

When I am far away,
You abandon me.
Magdalena, I love you!

You have a new lover,
And never will come with me.
Magdalena, I love you!
