Could you tell me the meaning of this sentence, title of a famous "guns & roses" song?
dulce nino mio...
Thanks a lot!
Dulce chiquilla mía
Dulce niña mía
Don't look too deeply ... it appears to be a refrain in a throwaway love song that the band wrote in 15 minutes without any expectation of success. The line itself is just a term of endearment for the woman who is the subject of the song.
One of the refrains goes:
Sweet child of mine
Sweet love of mine
So it's clearly about a woman, not a child. I can't say we say "child" too often as a term of affection for the opposite sex, though the Beatles had an early hit called "Little Child" [won't you dance with me]
Well, you can use niña as a sweet way to call a woman in Spanish too...
Separate names with a comma.
