Granada Lyrics - Frank Sinatra

Review The Song (2)

Granada, land that I dream about
My song becomes gypsy-like when it is for you
My song, made from fantasy
My song, blossom of melancholy
Which I've come to bestow on you.
Granada, maiden sung about in precious couplets
I have nothing to give you but a bouquet of roses
made from a rebellious and gypsy dream covered with flowers,
And I kiss your crimson mouth, a juicy apple
that speaks to me of love.

Granada, land bloodied in evenings of bullfights
Woman who retains the bewitchment of your Moorish eyes
of softly fragrant roses
which had framed the image of the dark-skinned Virgin.

Granada, your land is full
of beautiful women, blood and sun.

"Granada" remembered | Reviewer: | 4/25/14

"Granada" was one of those very popular, radio-frequented songs which we heard often over station WSAL while I lived in Logansport(Indiana) in the 1950s & '60s. For some reason, it gets overlooked by Frank Sinatra album assemblers--but I always liked its optimistic, pleasant tone; unquestionably, it features an excellent delivery by the "Chairman of the Board." I only re-discovered "Granada" recently on a CD during a record sale, and intend to pass it on to a younger generation who will appreciate its quality. "Granada" lives!

Change of lyrics | Reviewer: Shelley Gael | 9/13/07

Granada, the sky greets the day with a sigh in Granada. For she can remember the splendor that once was Granada. It still can be found in the hills all around as I wander along. Entranced by the beauty before me, Entranced by a land washed with sunshine and flowers and song.
And when day is done and the sun starts to set in Granada, I still can remember the Splendor that once was Granada. For soon it will welcome the stars while guitars play a soft habanera. Then moonlit Granada will live again, the glory of yesterday, romantic and gay." HOpe this helps. I learned this song as a child and have sung it all my life. Thank you for the Spanish lyrics which I will used in my next show. Shelley Gael
