"Spanish Lullaby" by Marty Robbins

Greetings all,

Marty Robbins recorded a song titled "Spanish Lullaby" in which a father sings to his young son. I'd like to surprise a close latina friend (and maybe become much closer smile ) by singing this for her, but I'm unsure about the gender tenses of the words (I"m a total newbie as far as Spanish grammar goes) the song can be heard on youtube at:

<http://www.youtube.com/watch'v=sO9lVjfUzu0>

and the lyrics are:

Cierras ya tus ojitos.
Duermete sin temor.
Sueña con angelitos
parecidos a ti.
Y te agarrare tu mano.
Duermete sin temor.
Cuando tu despiertes,
yo estare aqui.

Da,da..da,da.,da..da,da.,da..
Da,da..da,da..,da,da..
Da,da..da,da.,da..da,da.,da..
Da,da..da,da..,da,da..

Y te agarrare tu mano.
Dueremete sin temor.
Cuando tu despiertes,
yo estare aqui.

I don't really need a 'translation" more like an adaptation for a female listener. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Gracias,

Chuck

No adaptation needed, Chuck. this song is sort of "genderless". so it would fit for a daughter and most certainly for a person you love.

I can assure you she will like it.

Chuck,

There is no need to adaptation, you can sing it to her.
Good luck.
