Granada, I'm falling 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
For she can remember
The splendor
That once was
It still can be found
In the hills all around
As I wand'r along
Entranced by the beauty before me
Entranced by a land
Full of sunshine
And flowers and song

And when day is done
And the sun starts to set in
I envy the blush of
The snow-clad Sierra Nevada For soon it will welcome
The star while a thousand guitars
Play a soft habaņera
Then moonlit Granada
Will live again
The glory of yesterday
Romantic and gay!!!
