Lyrics ALL IN VAIN
I'VE BEEN DREAMING
OF A LOVE LIGHT
THAT'S BEAMING;
IN MY DREAMS
I CARESSED YOU,
IN MY ARMS
FONDLY PRESSED YOU.
NOW MY HOPING
IS ENDED,
IT WAS NEVER
INTENDED;
YOU'RE JUST
COQUETTING,
I'D BE FORGETTING,
BUT YOU
ARE NOT LETTING ME
DEAR...

MARTA,
RAMBLING ROSE
OF THE WILDWOOD,
MARTA,
WITH YOUR FRAGRANCE
DIVINE.
ROSEBUD
OF THE DAYS
OF MY CHILDHOOD,
WATCHED YOU BLOOM
IN THE WILDWOODS
AND I HOPED YOU'D BE MINE.
MARTA,
NOW YOUR EYES BEAM
AT TWILIGHT,
SPARKLING
LIKE EACH DEWDROP
AT DAWN;
MARTA,
WHEN I LOOK
FOR YOUR LOVELIGHT,
I AWAKE
WITH A SIGH
AND I FIND
YOU ARE GONE.

(Spanish lyric):
LINDA
LOR DE AL
BORANDA
QUE BROTAS
TE DEL SUELO;
CUANDO LA LUZ
DEL CIELO,
TU CAPULLO
BESABA;
DE LAS ROSAS
ENCANTO,
EL PEN SIL
TE A MA TANTO,
QUE YA LO CO
DE AMOR SIENTE
CELOS DEL AVE
DEL AIREI
DEL SOL...

MARTA,
CAPULLITO
DE ROSA,
MARTA,
DEL JARDIN
LINDA FLOR.
DI ME
I QUE FELIZ
MARIPOSA
EN TU CALIZ
SE POSA,
A LIBAR
TU DULZOR?
MARTA:
EN TUS CLARAS
PUPILAS.
BRILLA
UNA AURORA
DE AMOR.
MARTA:
ENTUS OJOS
AZULES,
DEINE FABLE
CANDOR
VEO ENELLOS
ADIOS.

Lyrics (English lyrics):

IN CUBA,
EACH MERRY MAID
WAKES UP
WITH THIS SERENADE:
PEANUTS!
THEY'RE NICE
AND HOT,
PEANUTS!
I SELL A LOT.
IF YOU HAVEN'T
GOT BANANAS,
DON'T BE BLUE,
FRESHLY ROASTED
TODAY!
IF YOU'RE LOOKING
FOR A MORAL
TO THIS SONG,
FIFTY MILLION
MONKEYS
CAN'T BE WRONG.

IN CUBA,
HIS SMILING FACE
IS WELCOME
MOST EV'RY PLACE.
PEANUTS!
THEY HEAR HIM CRY,
PEANUTS!
THEY ALL REPLY.
IF YOU'RE LOOKING
FOR AN EARLY MORNING
TREAT,
I EAT MORE
THAN I SELL!
IF AN APPLE
KEEPS THE DOCTOR
FROM YOUR DOOR,
PEANUTS
OUGHT TO KEEP HIM
FROM YOU EVERMORE.

PEANUTS!
WE'LL MEET AGAIN,
PEANUTS!
THIS STREET AGAIN,
PEANUTS!
YOU'LL EAT AGAIN,
YOUR PEANUT MAN,
THAT PEANUT MAN'S
GONE.
