Basque Fandango

Basque1 Fandango,
A simple and whimsical fandango
A girl never says no
to dancing in the arms of a boy!
The whole village is partying
And everyone is a poet,
Tonight everyone thinks only about love
The mountain is flirting with the river Adour 2
Fandango... Fandango
That gives rhythm to the cheers
The echo repeats
from Sare to Bilbao
It's the song of the birds
It's the song of the streams
It's the song of love
Basque Fandango
A simple and whimsical fandango
It's thanks to you that we splash out on
The best things in life
And how many marriages
Have been seen in the village,
Under your joyful and vibrant accents
And your rhythm which runs in our blood

C'est grâce à toi que l'on fait des folies
Qui sont bien le meilleur de la vie.
