Lyrics THE BREEZE AND I
ARE SAYING
WITH A SIGH
THAT YOU
NO LONGER CARE.
THE BREEZE AND I
ARE WHISPERING
GOODBYE
TO DREAMS
WE USED TO SHARE.

OURS WAS A LOVE SONG
THAT SEEMED CONSTANT
AS THE MOON,
ENDING IN A STRANGE,
MOURNFUL TUNE.
AND ALL ABOUT ME,
THEY KNOW
YOU HAVE DEPARTED
WITHOUT ME,
AND WE WONDER WHY,
THE BREEZE AND I.

Spanish Lyric by Emilio de Torre
ANDALUCIA,
SUELO ENCANTADOR,
LA FLOR DE AMOR,
QUIEN VINO A TI
JAMAS TE
OLVIDDARA,
FELIZ SERA!
TUS CARMENES
GRANADINOS
DE ILUSION
DONDE LAS
FONTANAS CANTAN,
MURMURANDO
SU PASION.
ANDALUIA,
TIERRA DE PASION,
MI CORAZON.
DE AMORES
EMBRIAGADO SUSPIRO
CON TU ALIENTO
PERFUMADO
SE EMBRIAGO,
SE EMBRIAGO.
TUS NOCHES
DAN ENCANTO
AL CORAZON.
NO HAY TIERRA
MAS PRIMOROSA
QUE ANDALUCIA,
TIERRA DE ALEGRIA
Y DE AMOR,
DONDE LAS
FLORES PERFUMAN
Y LAS MUJERES
SON FLORES
DE AMORE.
ANDALUCIA,
FLOR DE AMOR.

Lyrics English Lyrics:
FROM ONE LOVE TO ANOTHER
THIS DREAMER CALLS
TO YOUR HEART,.
OH, WHY SHOULD
A SINGLE BLUE NOTE
IN OUR LOVE SONG
KEEP US APART?

ALL BECAUSE
OF ONE SHOWER
YOU TOOK THE SUNSHINE
AWAY WITH YOU,
FROM ONE LOVE TO ANOTHER,
FROM THE OLD LOVE
TO THE NEW.
STRANGE HOW A BIT OF RAIN
CAN HIDE THE SUN,
ONE CLOUD CAN DIM THE STARS
WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
AND THRU A MOMENTS QUARREL
YESTERDAY
YOUR LOVE SEEMS
A MILLION MILES AWAY.

FROM ONE LOVE TO ANOTHER
THIS DREAMER CALLS
TO YOUR HEART,
OH, WHY SHOULD
A SINGLE BLUE NOTE
IN OUR LOVE SONG
KEEP US APART.
ALL BECAUSE
OF ONE SHOWER
YOU TOOK THE SUNSHINE
AWAY WITH YOU,
FROM ONE LOVE TO ANOTHER
FROM THE OLD LOVE
TO THE NEW,
FROM THE OLD LOVE
TO THE NEW.

Lyrics JUNGLE DRUMS,
THROUGH THE BLACK OF NIGHT,
SEND YOUR MESSAGE
TO ME.
BRING LOVE'S MESSAGE
TO ME.
GUIDING ME
THROUGH THE TROPIC MAZE,
WITH THEIR WEIRD MELODY.
CHANTING THEIR MELODY.
YOU ARE MINE
IS THE MESSAGE THEY CRY,
I AM THINE
LONG AS STARS
LIGHT THE SKY.
JUNGLE DRUMS,
AT YOUR CALL I FLY,
TO THE PAGAN
I LOVE.

BEAT AFTER BEAT,
HUMS
THROUGH TROPICAL HEAT.
ECHOES REPEAT,
PLAINTIVE BEAT
AFTER BEAT,
DRENCHING RAIN FALLS,
BUT AS LONG AS LOVE CALLS,
ALL THE WORLD
CANT KEEP US APART.
WITH THOSE DRUMS
IN MY HEART,
THROBBING ON,
THROBBING ON.

JUNGLE DRUMS,
THROUGH THE BLACK OF NIGHT,
SEND YOUR MESSAGE
TO ME.
BRING LOVES MESSAGE
TO ME.
GUIDING ME
THROUGH THE TROPIC MAZE,
WITH THEIR WEIRD MELODY.
CHANTING THEIR MELODY.
YOU ARE MINE
IS THE MESSAGE THEY CRY,
I AM THINE
LONG AS STARS
LIGHT THE SKY.
JUNGLE DRUMS,
AT YOUR CALL I FLY,
TO THE ONE
THAT I LOVE,
I LOVE.

Lyrics I KEEP DREAMING OF A NIGHT
AND A LOVE.
WE KISSED WHILE WE SWAYED
AT LA COMPARSA,
THE CARNIVAL PARADE.
THEY HOLD LANTERNS
ON HIGH,
THE BLAZE
LIGHTS THE SKY,
THEY DANCE
THROUGH THE STREET,
WHILE DRUMS ARE PLAYED
WITH A STRANGE,
RHYTHMIC BEAT.

I DREAM OF A NIGHT,
ENCHANTED BY
LA COMPARSA,
HAVANA SEEMED
ALL AFIRE,
I MET THE ONE
I DESIRE!
YOU HELD ME,
MY HEART
WAS BEATING ALOUD.
WE KISSED AND THEN
WE WERE TORN APART
IN THE CROWD.
THAT VERY MOMENT,
I LOST YOU,
AND YET MY DREAMS
RESTORE ALL THE THRILL
OF THE EVENING
OF LA COMPARSA.
AND IN THE STILL
OF THE NIGHT,
WE DANCE
LA COMPARSA
ONCE MORE!

I KEEP DREAMING
OF A NIGHT
AND A LOVE.
TOO SOON
COMES THE DAWN,
WHEN, LIKE YOUR KISS,
LA COMPARSA
IS GONE!

Spanish Lyric - by Ernesto Lecuona:
SE ESCUCHA EL RUMOR,
SE ESCUCHA EL SONAR
DEL SECO TAMBOR
DE LAS MARACAS
Y EL TIMBAL.
EL TRISTE CANTAR
DE INTENSA EMOCION
QUE INVITA A SONAR
AL AMOROSO CORAZON.

BRILLANTE Y TRIUNFAL
RITMO ARMONIOSO
Y SENSUAL
QUE INVADE TODO
MI SER,
HACIENDOLO
ESTREMECER.
SUS MAGICOS SONES
INSPIRAN
LAS CONTORSIONES
QUE MARCA
ASI EL BAILADOR
CON LUBRICO FERVOR.

EL TRISTE CANTAR
DE INTENSA EMOCION
QUE INVITA A SONAR
AL AMOROSO CORAZON!

Lyrics MALAGA,
WHERE OUR LIPS FIRST MET
TO THE BEAT OF THE CASTANET,
NOW I PRAY TO THE SKIES ABOVE
BRING HIM BACK,
PLEASE BRING BACK MY LOVE.
MALAGA,
BLUE SEAS STILL ECHO
HIS LAST WORDS TO ME.

MALAGUENA,
THO' YOU ARE EV'RYTHING TO ME,
MALAGUENA,
MY TRUE LOVE IS THE SEA.
LOVE LIKE OURS
MUST LEARN TO PLAY,
PLAY A WAITING GAME
AND LIVE
JUST FOR THE FLAME
MALAGUENA,
THERE'S A FIRE
DEEP INSIDE OF ME
THAT MUST BURN,
DIE OUT,
SO I CAN BE FREE.
IF NO SPARK
REMAINS WITHIN,
WHEN THE STORM
IS PAST,
I'LL BE YOURS,
YOURS AT LAST.

Spanish Lyric - by Ernesto Lecuona
EL AMOR ME
LLEVA HACIA TI
CON IMPULSO
ARREBATADOR.
YO PREFIERO
MEJOR MORIR
QUE VIVAR SIN
TENER TU AMOR.
LA INCONSTANCIA
DE TU QUERER
LA ALEGRIA MATO
EN MI SER.
AY, AL TEMOR
DE PERDER TU AMOR
HOY MI CANTO
SOLO ES DOLOR.

MALAGUENA,
DE OJOS NEGROS,
MALAGUENA,
DE MIS SUENOS,
ME ESTOY
MURIENDO DE PENA
POR TU QUERER.
MALAGUENA,
DE OJOS NEGROS,
MALAGUENA,
DE MIS SUENOS,
SI NO ME QUIERES
ME MUERO.
TE QUIERO BESAR.

Lyrics verse:
MULATA INFELIZ,
TU VIDA ACABO.
DE RISA Y GUARACHAS
SE HA ROTO EL BONGO
QUE OFAS AYER
TEMBLANDO DE AMOR,
Y CON ILUSION
JUNTO A UN HOMBRE CRUEL.
SU AMOR YA SE FUE
DE MI CORAZON.
QUE HOY YA LE ABORRECE
PORQUE MI PASION
QUE HIRIO SU TRAICION
YA TAN SOLO ES.
SED DE VERLE AL FIN
TENDIDO A MIS PIES.

Chorus:
MARIA LA O,
YA NA MAS CANTAR.
MARIA LA O,
HORA ES DE LLORAR
Y DE RECORDAR
EL TIEMPO FELIZ
DE TUS BESOS
QUE FUGAZ YA VOLO.
MARIA LA O,
TODO SE ACABO.
MARIA LA O,
TU AMOR YA SE FUE
Y JAMAS EL VOLVERA.
MARIA LA O,
SUENA EN MORIR.

English Lyric
verse:
WRETCHED MULATA,
YOUR LIFE IS ENDED.
FROM LAUGHTER AND DANCE
YOU HAVE SPOILED THE SONG
THAT YOU HEARD YESTERDAY
THAT TOLD OF LOVE,
AND OF THE ILLUSION
OF YOUR BELOVED.
HIS LOVE IS GONE
FROM MY HEART.
NOW IT BORES ME
BECAUSE MY PASSION,
WHICH ENDED HIS FALSENESS,
HAS LEFT HIM ALL ALONE
I THIRST TO SEE HIM
DEAD AT MY FEET.

Chorus:
MARIA LA O,
THERE WILL BE NO MORE SONG.
MARIA LA O,
NOW IT IS TIME TO CRY,
AND TO REMEMBER
THE HAPPY MOMENTS
OF HIS TENDER KISSES
WHICH ARE ALL GONE NOW.
MARIA LA O,
EVERYTHING IS FINISHED.
MARIA LA O,
YOUR LOVE HAS LEFT YOU
AND WILL NEVER AGAIN RETURN,
MARIA LA O,
ALL THAT IS LEFT IS DEATH.
