On A Little Balcony In Spain

(Ray Doll / Saul Klein / Jack Le Soir)


New Mayfair Orchestra

So, give me the moon
And an old Spanish tune
Let me linger again
When love came to me on a little balcony in Spain.

I hadn't the right
But the spell of the night
Made me kiss her again
When love came to me on a little balcony in Spain.

At dawn
I found she had gone
I didn't take long to discover, that
She had somebody else for her lover!

I lost my chance
That's the way of romance
Now I linger in vain
Where love came to me on a little balcony in Spain.
