YOURS / LA PALOMA / SIBONEY / SOUTH OF BORDER 

This night has music, the sweetest music

,It echoes sound beat within my heart
I hold you near me, my darling hear me
, I have a message, I must impart

Yours till the stars lose their glory, yours till the birds fail to sing
Yours till the end of life's story this pledge to you, dear, I bring.
Yours in the gray of December here or on far distant shores
I've never loved anyone the way I love you
How could I, when I was born to be just yours?

 

Quando salí de l´Habana, válgame Dios. Nadie me ha visto salir sino fuí yo.

Y una, linda guachinanga como una flor se vino detrás de mi diciendo adiós.

Si a ventana llega una paloma trátala con cariño que es mi persona.

Cuéntale tus amores bien de mi vida, coronála de flores que es cosa mía.

 

Ay chinita que si, ay que dame tu amor.

Ay que vente conmigo chinita a donde vivo yo.

Siboney de mi sueño si no oyes la queja de mi voz
Siboney si no vienes me moriré de amor
Siboney de mis sueños te espero con ansias en mi caney
Siboney si no vienes me moriré de amor
Oye el eco de mi canto de cristal

No te pierdas por entre el rudo Manigual

South of the border, down Mexico way

That's where he fell in love, where stars above came out to play

And now as he wandered, his thoughts ever strayed

South of the border - down Mexico way.

Then she smiled as she whispered "mañana"

Never dreaming that they were parting

And he lied as he whispered "mañana"

´Cause that tomorrow never came.

South of the border, he looked at one day

There in a veil of white, by candle light, she knelt to pray

Oh, mission bells told me that he mustn't stay

South of the border down Mexico way

 

Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!

Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!

Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!

Ay! Ay! Ay! Ay!
