"Que Te Vaya Bonito" by Jose Alfredo Jimenez, English translation of lyrics

"May Things Go Beautifully For You"
Style: Sorrowful mariachi love song
Country: Mexico

Listen:

This is a post-breakup song, with the narrator wishes his former lover nothing but good things. It sounds like he ended the relationship due to outside circumstances. The song was used for a 1978 Mexican film, but there is little information available online. Listen to the song at YouTube here.

Translation:

Ojalá que te vaya bonito.
Ojalá que se acaben tus penas,
Que te digan que yo ya no existo,
Y conozcas personas más buenas....
