Available translation(s): ENG
Derrière Murcie en fleurs
je connais un chemin
qui mène jusqu'à toi parmi les orangers
Que fais-tu toute seule si loin si loin si loin...

Pourquoi t'ai-je quittée
Ah! si tu me voyais tu t'assiérais
en pleurs  parmi les grenadiers
Que fais-tu toute seule si loin si loin si loin...

Behind Murcia in bloom
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
Behind Murcia in bloom
I know a path
Which leads to you among the orange trees
What are you doing all alone so far so far so far [away]...

Why did I leave you
Ah! if you saw me you would sit down
In tears among the pomegranate trees
What are you doing all alone so far so far so far [away]...
