Cielito Lindo

Cielito Lindo (vidcap)From what I can tell, the song chorus best known across all of Hispanic culture, both in Iberia and the Americas, is probably that of Cielito Lindo. Since I learned it some years ago, I can’t help thinking it to myself anytime anyone says more than one “Ay!”, which is fairly often. The chorus goes like this, which I won’t bother to translate, since the Wikipedia page does such a good job:

Ay, ay, ay, ay,
Canta y no llores,
Porque cantando se alegran,
Cielito lindo, los corazones.
