Tune of the Day: Las mañanitas

Traditional Mexican song

“Las mañanitas” is a traditional Mexican song that is sung on birthdays and other important holidays. It is often sung as an early morning “serenade” to wake up a loved one. At birthday parties it is sung before the cake is cut. As a traditional song with a long history, there are variations of “Las mañanitas”, with many different verses.

These are the morning songs
that King David sang.
For today to be the day of your saint
we sing to you like this.
Wake up, my dear. Wake up!
See that it is already dawn...
How beautiful is the morning in which I come to greet you!
