The girls from Cadiz (Les filles de cadix Leo Delibes)

English translation

The girls from Cadiz

We had just seen the bull,
Three boys, three girls,
On the lawn it was sunny
And we were dancing a bolero
At the sound of the castanets.
'Tell me, this morning,
If I look well,
Do you think my waist is slim?…
The girls of Cadiz tend to love that!'
 
And we were dancing a bolero,
One Sunday evening
A hidalgo came to us,
Dressed in gold, with a feather on his hat,
And his fist on his hip:
'If you want,
This gold is yours.
Fair sir,
Go your way, fair sir...
The girls of Cadiz don't understand that!
Ah! ah!'
 
And we were dancing a bolero,
Down the hill,
On the way went Diego,
Who counts just a coat for his possessions
And a mandolin:
'The fair soft-eyed lady,
I am jealous,
Jealous, jealous,
Jealous! jealous! what a folly!
The girls of Cadiz fear this flaw!'

Les filles de cadix Leo Delibes

Nous venions de voir le taurreau,
Trois garçon, trois fillettes,
Sur la pelouse il faisait beau
Et nous dansions un boléro
Au son des castagnettes.
'Dites-moi, ce matin,
Si j'ai bonne mine,
Vous me trouvez la taille fine?…
