OLDIES SUNDAY (Christmas): Daisy Voisin – Alegría, Alegría (1981)


Seasons Greetings! On today’s Oldies Sunday, we head on over to the twin Islands of Trinidad & Tobago for some Parang! For those who aren’t familiar, this is a genre of music originated from T&T and Venezuela that is normally played around Christmas time with some songs referring to elements of it including the birth of Jesus Christ. Today’s selection comes from the “Queen of Parang“, the late Daisy Voisin with “Alegría, Alegría“. Produced by Arnold Shuffler and released through RH Productions in 1981, this song is about the birth of Jesus and his role as saviour. The single was featured on her album “Parang Queen” and has been one of her most notable songs. While sung in Spanish, we’ll give you the English version below. We hope you enjoyed our selection, and we encourage you to tune in next Sunday for another! Live on, Queen Daisy Voisin!

Spanish Lyrics

Entrando la sala del recibimiento
Y yo le cantaré cerca del nacimiento
Entrando la sala del recibimiento
Y yo le cantaré cerca del nacimiento.

Alegría, alegría, se nacio el Señor
Para salvar el hombre y ser su Redentor
En Belen de Judea, la Virgen María
“Eso es el niño del Rey” decía.

En la nochebuena, dulce resplandor
Es la gran estrella del nuestro Señor
En la nochebuena, dulce resplandor
Es la gran estrella annunció el Señor.

Alegría, alegría, se nacio el Señor
Para salvar el hombre y ser su Redentor
En Belen de Judea, la Virgen María
“Eso es el niño del Rey” decía.

En el comedero de aquel ganado
Maria parió el niño soberano
En el comedero de aquel ganado
Maria parió el niño soberano

Alegría, alegría, se nació el Señor
Para salvar el hombre y ser su Redentor
En Belen de Judea, la Virgen María
“Eso es el niño del Rey” decía.

Nació un profeta en el pueblo de Belen
Con una estrella enfrente para predicar el Bien
Nació un profeta en el pueblo de Belen
Con una estrella enfrente para predicar el Bien.

Alegría, alegría, se nació el Señor
Para salvar el hombre y ser su Redentor
En Belen de Judea, la Virgen María
“Eso es el niño del Rey” decía.

La Virgen María y el Santo José
Son los padres buenos de este niño rey
La Virgen Maria y el Santo José
Son los padres buenos de este niño rey.

Alegría, alegría, se nacio el Señor
Para salvar el hombre y ser su Redentor
En Belen de Judea, la Virgen María
“Eso es el niño del Rey” decía.

Doce de la noche, nació el verdadero
Y lo bautizaron día seis de enero
Doce de la noche, nació el verdadero
Y lo bautizaron día seis de enero.

Alegría, alegría, se nació el Señor
Para salvar el hombre y ser su Redentor
En Belen de Judea, la Virgen María
“Eso es el niño del Rey” decía
Alegría, alegría, se nació el Señor
Para salvar el hombre y ser su Redentor
En Belen de Judea, la Virgen María
“Eso es el niño del Rey” decía.

English Lyrics

Entering the reception room
And I will sing you near the birth
Entering the reception room
And I will sing you near the birth.

Joy, joy, the Lord was born
To save man and be his Redeemer
In Bethlehem of Judea, the Virgin Mary
“That is the child of the King” said.

On Christmas Eve, sweet glow
It is the great star of our Lord
On Christmas Eve, sweet glow
It is the great star the Lord announced.

Joy, joy, the Lord was born
To save man and be his Redeemer
In Bethlehem of Judea, the Virgin Mary
“That is the child of the King” said.

In the feeder of that cattle
Maria gave birth to the sovereign child
In the trough of that cattle
Maria gave birth to the sovereign child

Joy, joy, the Lord was born
To save man and be his Redeemer
In Bethlehem of Judea, the Virgin Mary
“That is the child of the King” said.

A prophet was born in the town of Bethlehem
With a star in front to preach the Good
A prophet was born in the town of Bethlehem
With a star in front to preach Good.

Joy, joy, the Lord was born
To save man and be his Redeemer
In Bethlehem of Judea, the Virgin Mary
“That is the child of the King” said.

The Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph
They are the good parents of this child king
The Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph
They are the good parents of this child king.

Joy, joy, the Lord was born
To save man and be his Redeemer
In Bethlehem of Judea, the Virgin Mary
“That is the child of the King” said.

Twelve in the night, the true one was born
AND they baptized him on January
6th Twelve in the night, the true one was born
AND they baptized him on January 6th.

Joy, joy, the Lord was born
To save man and be his Redeemer
In Bethlehem of Judea, the Virgin Mary
“That is the child of the King” said
Joy, joy, the Lord was born
To save man and be his Redeemer
In Bethlehem of Judea, the Virgin Mary
“That’s the King’s boy,” he said.
