A. The words and music of “New Mexico--Mi Lindo Nuevo Mexico”, written by Pablo Mares, are declared to be the state bilingual song. The words are:
I'm singing a song of my homeland
Most wonderful place that I've seen.
My song cannot fully describe it
I call it land of my dreams.
Land of the sun
Where yucca blooms
The sunset sighs.
Your starry nights,
Your music sweet as daylight dies.
My heart returns
It ever yearns
To hear the desert breezes blow,
Your snow, your rain, your rainbows' blend,
I'm proud of my New Mexico.(Translation)
Yo canto de un pais lindo
Mas bello no he visto yo,
Mi cancion no puede decirlo,
Como mi corazon.
Pais del sol
Palmillas floreciendo alli.
Tus noches lindas
Traen recuerdos para mi.
Llora por ti me dice a mi
Te quiero yo.
Tus sierras y tus valles
Son mi lindo Nuevo Mexico.
B. A copy of the state bilingual song exhibited with this bill shall be filed with the secretary of state to be lodged in the archives of his office.
