Amapola    (1924)

De amor en los hierros de tu reja
De amor escuché la triste queja
De amor que sonó en mi corazón
Diciéndome así
con su dulce canción

Amapola, lindísima amapola,
Será siempre mi alma tuya sola.
Yo te quiero, amada niña mía,
Igual que ama la flor la luz del día.

Amapola, lindísima amapola,
No seas tan ingrata y ámame.
Amapola, amapola,
¿Cómo puedes tú vivir tan sola?

English lyrics (1940) by Albert Gamse

Amapola, my pretty little poppy,
You're like the lovely flower so sweet and heavenly.
Since I found you my heart is wrapped around you,
And, loving you, it seems to beat a rhapsody.

Amapola, the pretty little poppy
Must copy its endearing charms from you.
Amapola, Amapola,
How I long to hear you say "I love you."

Lyrics by Joseph LaCalle (Spanish) and Albert Gamse (English).
Recorded by Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra.
