Historically the name Marcheta is associated with a beautiful love song of old Mexico. The song tells the story of a man’s heart ache for his lover, Marcheta. This poster set on a soft yellow cream background shows the image of a young Mexican lady in a crimson bandana and gold hoop earrings. She smiles out at the viewer; her head tiled back knowing the power of her beauty and seduction. Beneath this image her name is written; Marcheta. The song of Marcheta was created in 1913 by musician, composer, and director Victor Schertzinger.

Marcheta

Marcheta, Marcheta,
I still hear you callin' me back,
To your arms once again.

I still feel the spell,
Of your last kiss upon me,
Since then, life has all been in vain.

All has been sadness,
Without you Marcheta,
Each day finds me lonely and blue.

My poor heart is broken,
I want you Marcheta,
I need you Marcheta I do.

{ instrumental break }

All has been sadness,
Without you Marcheta,
Each day finds me lonely and blue.

My poor heart is broken,
I want you Marcheta,
I need you Marcheta I do.
