Granada - I have fallen under your spell...

Granada, I'm falling under your spell, 

And if you could speak, what a fascinating tale you would tell. 

Of an age the world has long forgotten, 

Of an age that weaves a silent magic in Granada today. 

The dawn in the sky greets the day with a sigh for Granada. 

For she can remember the splendor that once was Granada. 

It still can be found in the hills all around as I wander along, 

Entranced by the beauty before me, 

Entranced by a land full of flowers and song. 

When day is done and the sun touch the sea in Granada, 

I envy the blush of the snow-clad Tierra Novada, 

Soon it will welcome the stars 
While a thousand guitars play a soft Carbinera. 

.Then moonlit Granada will live again, 

The glory of yesterday, romantic, gay Granada.

(Music and lyrics by Albeniz and Isaacs, famously sung by Placido Domingo and Frank Sinatra).
