¿Con qué la lavaré?
¿Con qué la lavaré
la [tez]1 de la mi cara?
¿Con qué la lavaré,

Lávanse las casadas
con agua de limones:
lávome yo, cuitada,
con [penas]2 y dolores.

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03%
of our visitors.
