La Paloma (English Lyrics)

LA PALOMA (English Lyrics)
Latin American Folk Song / 1864
English and Spanish Lyrics: Gifford

 


My dear, la paloma sings in the tree above;
He sings with his sweetheart softly their songs of love;
Canta, la paloma sing us the serenade.
Canta, en la noche sweetly your serenade.
Fiesta is here, we smile and guitars are playing;
Breezes are blowing, as we are gently swaying.
La paloma, the dove,
La paloma sings on this summer night;
He coos, oh, so gently,
He coos so gently, under the stars so bright!
(Interlude)
Fiesta is here, senoritas and hombres dancing;
Guitars softly playing, making the night entrancing;
Our hearts fill with love, we wish this could last forever;
This magical time that brings all our hearts together.
La paloma, the dove, la paloma sings in the tree above.
He sings with his sweetheart softly their songs of love.

I have heard Paloma sung in Italian German Spanish Russian and other languages, but it is the music that makes it the worlds best song.

La Paloma is not a Latin American folk song. It was composed and written by Spanish composer Sebastian Iradier (some spell it Yradier) after he visited Cuba in 1861.He died two years later without ever realizing what a worldwide hit he has written.

If I were to choose a song sung for me at my funeral it would be la paloma sung by Julio Iglesias. This is the most beautiful song ever written IMO.
