Gaspar, Melchor y Baltasar
(Argentinean Christmas Carol)

Here's a wonderful song about the Three Wise Men as performed by La Banda del Musiquero Loco. It has a nice exotic sound to it.

Gaspar, Melchor y Baltasar
Gaspar, Melchior and Balthazar
Canción de Navidad
Christmas Carol

Del lejano Oriente vienen
Con la caravana entre los mercaderes
Cartapacios, rollos de papiro
Traen los regalos para el niño divino.

Son tres magos en tres camellos
La luz de Belén en el firmamento
Son sus corazones de zafiro
incienso y mirra para el niño dormido.

Gaspar, Melchor y Baltasar
Gaspar, Melchor y Baltasar.

From far East they come
With the caravan, among the merchants,
Satchels, papyrus scrolls,
They bear Gifts for the Divine Child.

They're three Magi on three camels,
The light of Bethlehem in the sky
Their hearts are of sapphire,
Incense and myrrh for the sleeping child.

Gaspar, Melchior and Balthazar
Gaspar, Melchior and Balthazar.
