The mill, crushing mill
Mill alone grinding
ta’ andando,
ta’ andando,
ta’ andando

Here is the mill
Milling on the shore
Grinding my pain
Milling on the shore
ta’ andando

Molino Molero
Molino solo ta’ andando
ta’ andando
ta’ andando

Ahí está el molino
Moliendo en la playa
Moliendo mi pena
Moliendo en la playa
Ta’ andado...
Molino molero
Molino sólo ta’ andando...
Molino molero
Molino sólo ta’ andando
Ta’ andando....

Ahí está el molino
Moliendo mi pena
Moliendo mi pena

As published in the works of W. Tompkins, there’s just this phrase: Molino, molero sólo ta’ andando

It was recovered by José Durand, who heard it from Bartola Sancho Dávila, the famous Peruvian dancer, who had learned it from her aunt, the slave Juana Irujo. The song dates back to the beginnings of the 19th century, and is part of an older work of recovery. The second stanza was added by Ricardo Pereira.
