"Granada" is a song in Frank Sinatra's 1961 album, Swing Along with Me.

Lyrics Edit

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 Sierra Nevada,
Soon it will welcome the stars
While a thousand guitars play a soft Habanera.
Then moonlit Granada will live again,
The glory of yesterday, romantic and gay.
(musical interlude)
And soon it will welcome the stars
While a thousand guitars play a soft Habanera.
Then moonlit Granada will live again,
The glory of yesterday, romantic, gay Granada.

And these are the Spanish lyrics as sung by Placido Domingo:

Granada, tierra soñada por mi
Mi cantar se vuelve gitano cuando es para ti
Mi cantar, hecho de fantasia
Mi cantar, flor de melancolia
Que yo te vengo a dar

Granada, Manola cantada en coplas preciosas
No tengo otra cosa que darte que un ramo de rosas
De sueño rebelde y gitano cubierta de flores
Y beso tu boca de grana jugosa manzana
Que me habla de amores

Granada, tierra ensangrentada en tardes de toros
Mujer que conserva el embrujo de tus ojos moros
De rosas de suave fragancia
Que le dieran marco a la Virgen morena

Granada, tu tierra esta llena
De lindas mujeres, de sangre y de sol

De rosas de suave fragancia
Que le dieran marco a la Virgen morena
Granada, tu tierra esta llena
De lindas mujeres, de sangre y de sol
