A hemiola repeated makes for a dance rhythm, as this simple melody is treated to small variations.


"Estaba la calavera sentada en su butaca, / Vino la muerte y le dijo: / Hija ¿Por qué estás tan flaca?"


Translated:  ""There was a skull sitting in her chair, / Along came Death who said, / “Daughter, why are you so skinny?"
