As the bull i was born to mourningSalto de líneathe pain, as the bull am markingSalto de líneaby an infernal iron sideSalto de líneaand by men in the groin, with a fruit.

As the bull is tinySalto de líneaall my heart outsizeSalto de líneaand of the face of kiss,Salto de líneaas the bull on your love is.

As the bull i crezco punishment,Salto de líneathe language in heart i washedSalto de líneathe neck and a flurry of sound.

As the bull you and you still persigo,Salto de líneamy wish and leave in a sword.Salto de líneaas the bull flouted, as the bull.
