Circle left From where I stand I can hear The music and laughter Left allemande that corner, turn partner by the right The girls promenade At home dosado, left allemande Come back and promenade Camelia I hate you and love you at the same time
FIGURE Basic, corner progression
4 ladies back to back, the men promenade outside the ring go Turn your partner by the left, corner box the gnat The men star left, same girl dosado Left allemande, come back and promenade Camelia I hate you and love you at the same time

From where I stand I can see all the lights in the city
For one man to love one woman so much it's a pity
From where I stand I can see the cantina she goes to
Where she's not supposed to but goes anyway
From where I stand I can hear the music and laughter
Camelia keeps tellin' me that's all her young heart is after
I see it differently, I see her there with a man
Camelia keeps lyin', I see, from where I stand
If there was one ounce of man left in me I'd accuse her
What's left of a man knows for certain if I do I'll lose her
It wouldn't do to let her know I know she's lyin'
Or that I've been spyin', she'd never come back
Camelia, I almost despise the ground that you walk on
The reason I don't is, it's me not the ground, that you walk on
Constantly tormented knowing you're just partly mine
Camelia, I hate you and love you at the same time
