Alba
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Campanas de Córdoba
en la madrugada.
Campanas de amanecer
en Granada.
Os sienten todas las muchachas
que lloran a la tierna
soleá enlutada.
Las muchachas
de Andalucía la alta
y la baja.
Las niñas de España
de pie menudo
y temblorosas faldas,
que han llenado de luces
las encrucijadas.
¡Oh, campanas de Córdoba
en la madrugada.
y oh, campanas de amanecer
en Granada!

Aube
Language: French (Français)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Cloches de Cordoue
dans le matin,
Cloches de l'aube
à Grenade.
Toutes les filles vous entendent
en pleurant la tendre
soleá endeuillée.
Les jeunes filles
d'Andalousie, la haute
et la basse.
Les filles d'Espagne
au pied menu,
aux jupes tremblantes,
qui ont rempli de lumières
les carrefours.
Oh, cloches de Cordoue
dans le matin
et vous, oh, cloches de l'aube
à Grenade !
