Coming down from the Cat’s Fountain

was a girl, was a girl

Coming down from the Cat’s Fountain

were a girl and a soldier

Ask her what she’s called

– Marieta, Marieta

Ask her what she’s called

– Marieta, with the knowing look

What have you got in your basket?

– Barbary figs, Barbary figs

What have you got in your basket?

– Barbary figs and a carnation

And the carnation, who’s it for?

– For my mother, for my mother

And the carnation, who’s it for?

– For my mother, who’s going to dance

Sardana, words by Antoni Vives i Batlle, 1926
