Grenada Lyrics

Artist: Frankie Laine


-Artist: Frankie Laine as sung on "Frankie Laine's Greatest Hits"
-Columbia CS 8636
-peak Billboard position # 17 in 1954
-also charted as "Granada" by Frank Sinatra at # 64 in 1961
-English Lyrics by Dorothy Dodd and Music by Augustin Lara

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 wand'r along
Entranced by the beauty before me
Entranced by a land full of sunshine and flowers and song

And when day is done and the sun starts to set in Granada
I envy the blush of the snow-clad Sierra Nevada
For soon it will welcome the star while a thousand guitars
Play a soft habaera

Then moonlit Granada will live again the glory of yesterday
Romantic and gay!!!

Beautiful lyrics and melodie nothing like when Frankie L. sang it - such vigor timing... love the ".. land full of sunshine and flowers and song " etc. however it should be " stars" not "star" and the "along" after "wander" is awkward and un-necessary - we get it... but let me not subtract from Frankie L.'s "Granada". Marvelous. Bravo ! pls somebody Modern - pick this up and come close. Sentimental fool , JoeH. ..."& sunshine& flwers & song"
