Atardecer en España
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Fué en una linda tarde
En una estrecha calle de Andalucía,
En tu ventana estabas entre las flores
Y todo el que pasaba te sonreía.

Al ver esos tus lindos ojos llenos de ensueño
Sentí unos deseos locos de ser tu dueño,
¡Ah!

Y me acerqué a tu ventana
Y en tus ojos me miré
Mas al llegar a tus labios
Con locura te besé.

Fué en una linda tarde
En una estrecha calle de Andalucía.

Twilight in Spain
Language: English  after the Spanish (Español) 
It was a beautiful afternoon
On a narrow street of Andalusia,
You were in your window among the flowers
And everyone who passed smiled at you.

At seeing your lovely eyes full of fantasy,
I felt mad desires of being your master,
Ah!

And I approached your window,
And in your eyes I watched myself,
But at reaching your lips
With madness I kissed you.

It was a beautiful afternoon
On a narrow street of Andalusia.
