Granada

Post  Devotee #1 on 25th December 2007, 02:50

Granada I'm falling under your spell
And if you could speak what a fascinating tale you would tell
Of an age the world has long forgotten
Of an age that weaves a silent magic in Granada today
The dawn in the sky greets the day with a sigh for Granada
For she can remember the splendor that once was Granada
It still can be found in the hills all around as I wander along
Entranced by the beauty before me
Entranced by a land full of flowers and song
When day is done and the sun touch the sea in Granada
I envy the blush of the snow-clad Tierra Novada
Soon it will welcome the stars
While a thousand guitars play a soft Carbinera
Then moonlit Granada will live again
The glory of yesterday romantic and gay
And soon it will welcome the stars
While a thousand guitars play a soft Carbinera
Then moonlit Granada will live again
The glory of yesterday romantic gay Granada

Libiamo Ne' Lieti Calici

Post  Devotee #1 on 27th January 2008, 14:05

Let us drink from the goblets of joy
Adorned with beauty
And the fleeting hour shall be adorned
With pleasure
Let us drink to the secret raptures
Which love excites
For this eye reigns supreme in my heart
Let us drink for with wine
Love will enjoy yet more passionate kisses
With you I can spend
The time with delight
In life everything is folly
Which does not bring pleasure
Let us be happy fleeting and rapid
Is the delight of love
It is a flower which blooms and dies
Which can no longer be enjoyed
Let us be happy fervent
And enticing words summon us
Be happy wine and song
And laughter beautify the night
Let the new day find us in this paradise
Life is nothing but pleasure
As long as one is not in love
Don't say that to one who is ignorant
That is my fate
Be happy wine and song
And laughter beautify the night
Let the new day find us in this paradise

Il Bacio

Post  Devotee #1 on 14th February 2008, 10:51

Kiss me come and kiss me
Let me hold you in sweet love's embrace
Let me hold you and enfold you
Let me press your lips to mine
Love I'm yearning to tell you
Burning to tell you secrets that lovers tell
The secrets of love as sweet as the sweetest wine
Ever and forever close beside you
I would whisper to you ever sweetly
That I love you completely
Pleading for one more caress
Then Oh then I would tenderly tenderly
Listen to hear your heartbeats confess
Then Oh then I would tenderly
Listen to hear your heartbeats confess
Mine is no desire for diamonds' and jewels' art
Love has all the fire to thrill and capture my heart
Treasure I treasure is all for the taking for the taking
And the pleasure I pleasure is all in the making of delight
Come sweetheart come to my arms
And kiss me come and kiss me
Don't delay come and say that you love me tonight
For love alone lives for love alone
And to make you my own my very own
I'm living with this one design
Kiss me come and kiss me
Let me hold you in sweet love's embrace
Let me hold you and enfold you
Let me press your lips to mine
Come now to my arms
Come and tell me you love me tonight
Come and kiss me and give me delight
Come and hold me close to you and kiss me lover mine

Amapola

Post  Devotee #1 on 14th February 2008, 10:53

Poppy pretty little poppy
My soul will always be only yours
I love you my dear girl
As the flower loves day's light
Poppy pretty little poppy
Don't be so hard and love me
Poppy poppy
How can you live so alone
I love you my dear girl
The same as the flower loves day's light
Poppy pretty little poppy
Don't be so hard and love me
Poppy poppy
How can you live so alone

Clavelitos

Post  Devotee #1 on 14th February 2008, 10:55

Young girl give me the carnation
Give me the carnation of your mouth
For this there's no need for
Much embarrassment nor a little
I'll give you a bell
I promise it to you young girl
If you give me that honey
That you carry in your mouth
Carnations carnations
Carnations from my heart
I'll bring you carnations
Colored red like a strawberry
If one day carnations
I won't be able to bring you
Don't think that I don't love you anymore
It'll just be that I couldn't bring them to you

Largo Al Factotum

Post  Devotee #1 on 14th February 2008, 11:02

Make way for the topman of the city
Rushing to his shop now that it's dawn
Ah isn't life good how pleasant it is
For a barber of class
Ah nice one Figaro
Nice one really nice one
I am the luckiest it's true to say
I am the luckiest it's true to say
I am the luckiest it's true to say
Ready for anything night and day
Always busy and around
A better lot for a barber
A more noble life cannot be found
Razors and combs
Lancets and scissors
At my command
Are all here
Razors and combs
Lancets and scissors
At my command
Are all here
And there are extras
Then for the business
With women and with gentlemen
With women
With gentlemen
Ah isn't life good how pleasant it is
For a barber of class
Everyone asks for me everyone wants me
Women young people old people the golden haired
What about the wig a quick shave
Some leeches for bleeding quick the note
Everyone asks for me everyone wants me
What about the wig a quick shave Hurry - the note o me
Heavens what mayhem
Heavens what crowds
One at a time
For pities sake
One at a time One at a time
One at a time For pities sake
Figaro Here I am
O me Figaro Here I am
Figaro here Figaro there
Figaro up Figaro down
Quicker and quicker the sparks fly with me
I am the topman of the city
Ah nice one Figaro Nice one really nice one
From you luckiness will not depart
Ah nice one Figaro Nice one really nice one
From you luckiness will not depart
I am the topman of the city

Les Filles De Cadix

Post  Devotee #1 on 18th May 2008, 13:53

The girls of old Cadiz we know
Are beautiful and coquettes
One holiday with eyes aglow
We went to dance the bolero
To music of the castanets
Then the girls did say
How am I today
Don't I look much prettier than yesterday
Is not my amber comb the tallest
And don't you think my waist the smallest
The girls are very sensitive to compliments
If they like you they laugh ha-ha and sing tra-la
The girls are very sensitive to compliments
It happened at the gay parade
They give at Sunday dances
A bold hidalgo all arrayed
In plumes of gold did promenade
And made the girls advances
I have got the gold
You have got the kisses
Let's exchange our holdings
What do you say to this
How dare you go get on your way sir
To all your fancy plumes good day sir
The girls are very sensitive to compliments
If you offend there's no ha-ha and no tra-la
The girls are very sensitive to compliments

Je Veux Vivre

Post  Devotee #1 on 18th May 2008, 23:58

I wish I could live in day-dreams love can give
In day-dreams all my life can dance with romance
I wish everything could make my heart sing
With just such sweet music my day-dreams bring
Dance dance sunbeams and flowers
Dance dance golden-eyed hours
Dance dance dance at the ball - the ball of day-dreams
I wish everything could make my heart sing
With just such sweet music my day-dreams bring to my heart
For love in reality is a joy that too soon flies away
Truly love's a fatality for it all too soon dies away
Love soon dies away
Ah I wish I could live in day-dreams love can give
In day-dreams all my life can dance with romance
I wish everything could make my heart sing
With just such sweet music my day-dreams bring
Dance at the ball of day dreams
You'll be gay though you dance with a dream
Dance in the arms of day-dreams
Where romance can never betray you who dream
Dreams of romance never betray you
Dance and you'll be gay
Dance with day-dreams
Ah let me live with my love
Ah in my dreams

Vissi D'Arte

Post  Devotee #1 on 13th June 2008, 00:54

I lived for art I lived for love
I did no harm to any living soul
With a secret hand
I aided all the misfortunates I knew
Always with sincere faith
My prayer
Rose to the holy tabernacles
Always with sincere faith
I gave flowers to the altar
In the hour of sorrow
Why why Lord
Ah why do you reward me thus
I gave jewels to the robe of the Madonna
And gave song to the stars to the sky
Which smiled all the more beautifully
In the hour of sorrow
Why why Lord
Ah why you reward me thus

Quando M'en Vo

Post  Devotee #1 on 23rd June 2008, 12:08

When I walk all alone in the street
People stop and stare at me
And look for my whole beauty
From head to feet
And then I taste the slight yearning
Which transpires from their eyes
And which is able to perceive from manifest charms
To most hidden beauties
So the scent of desire is all around me
It makes me happy
And you while knowing reminding and longing
You shrink from me
I know it very well
You don't want to express your anguish
But you feel as if you're dying
