The New Mexico Bilingual State Song

New Mexico -- Mi Lindo Nuevo México

words and music by Pablo Mares

    I'm singing a song of my homeland 
    Most wonderful place that I've seen. 
    My song cannot fully describe it 
    I call it land of my dreams. 
    New Mexico,
    Land of the sun 
    Where yucca blooms 
    The sunset sighs. 
    New Mexico, 
    Your starry nights, 
    Your music sweet as daylight dies. 
    My heart returns 
    It ever yearns 
    To hear the desert breezes blow, 
    Your snow, your rain, your rainbows' blend, 
    I'm proud of my New Mexico. 
    
   TRANSLATION:
    Yo canto de un país lindo
    Mas bello no he visto yo, 
    Mi canción no puede decirlo, 
    Como mi corazón. 
    Nuevo México, 
    País del sol 
    Palmillas floreciendo alli. 
    Nuevo México, 
    Tus noches lindas 
    Traen recuerdos para mi. 
    Mi corazón 
    Llora por ti me dice a mi 
    Te quiero yo. 
    Tus sierras y tus valles 
    Son mi lindo Nuevo México.
