The Meaning Behind The Song: “Sabes una cosa” by Mariachi vargas de tecalitlan
As a music teacher and passionate piano player, I have always been drawn to songs that evoke deep emotions and touch the hearts of those who listen. One such song that has had a profound impact on me is “Sabes una cosa” by Mariachi vargas de tecalitlan. I remember stumbling upon this song at a friend’s house one evening, and from the moment I heard it, I was captivated.
The lyrics of “Sabes una cosa” are simple yet incredibly meaningful. The song starts with the lines, “Sabes una cosa, tengo algo de decirte, y no sé como empezar, a explicar lo que te quiero cantar” which translates to “You know something, I have something to tell you, and I don’t know how to begin, to explain what I want to sing to you.” These opening lines immediately grabbed my attention, as they beautifully express the struggle to find the right words to convey one’s feelings of love.
The singer continues to express their inability to find the perfect words, verses, rhyme, or prose to express their love. Instead, they suggest that perhaps a simple gesture like offering a rose can communicate their feelings. It is a gentle reminder that love doesn’t always need elaborate expressions, sometimes the simplest gestures can speak volumes.
The chorus of the song is particularly powerful, as it expresses gratitude for having met the person they are singing to. The lines “Doy gracias al cielo, por haberte conocido” which means “I thank heaven for having met you” emphasize the profound impact this person has had on their life. The singer then goes on to share this joy with the stars, telling them about the beautiful emotions they felt upon meeting their beloved.
The second verse of “Sabes una cosa” reaffirms the singer’s love and adoration for their beloved. They confess, “Sabes una cosa, te quiero niña hermosa, y te entrego en esta rosa, la vida que me pueda quedar” which translates to “You know something, I love you beautiful girl, and I offer you in this rose, the life I have left.” The use of the metaphor of a rose representing life showcases the depth and commitment of the singer’s love.
The song concludes with a reaffirmation of gratitude for having met their beloved and a repetition of the chorus. The emotive words “Te quiero y te venero, te adoro y te deseo, cariño ven y déjate amar” meaning “I love and adore you, come darling and let yourself be loved” leave no doubt about the singer’s feelings and desires.
Throughout my career as a music teacher, I have used this song as a tool to teach my students about the power of expressing emotions through music. The simplicity of the lyrics combined with the passionate delivery by Mariachi vargas de tecalitlan makes “Sabes una cosa” a perfect example of how music can touch the soul.
