'La Reina' (The Queen) is a sequel to 'El Rey' (The King) by Jose Alfredo Jimenez.

Unfortunately this song never charted in the top 20 of a BillBoard chart. If it did, I just haven't been able to find it.

The first verse & chorus in spanish are directly translated in the follwoing verse & chorus.


Yo se bien que estoy abajo tu amor es como un atraco
Me comiste como un taco
Por que tu fuiste la reina
A mi me da mucha pena
No no resultas ser sirena

Y si yo fuera el rey
Escribiria en un mague
Tu nombre cual flecha de amor
Me trato como un invasor

How well I know I'm down below
You devoured me like a taco
And you were the queen
You gave all this pain to me
But you are not a siren of the sea

Now if I were to be king
I would write your name within
The leaves of a cactus tree
Like an invader you treated me

Yeah he fell down along the way
But like a king he is today
Jose Alfredo sing with me
For the kings we couldn’t be
