Bridal Chest

There's a workshop

It's full of noises

Things are cut

Things are bound

Things are built

They're built in secret

The bridal chest

The wedding gown

So bring the maiden

From the cloister

Bring her free

Or bring her bound

She will stand

With her ancestors

The bridal chest

The wedding gown

Pay the dowry

In dolls and dishes

That’s the dough

This day of crowns

That’s the dough

It's el dinero

The bridal chest

The wedding gown

Bring the captain

From the lee shore

Leave his ship

To run aground

Leave his crew

To hungry fishes

The bridal chest

The wedding gown

Pay the dowry

In dolls and dishes

That’s the dough

This day of crowns

That’s the dough

It's el dinero

The bridal chest

The wedding gown

There's a workshop

Full of noises

Things are cut

And then unwound

Things are built

They're built in secret

The bridal chest

The wedding gown

The bridal chest

The wedding gown
