  • (Music)

  • ♫ I don't understand myself, ♫

  • why they keep talking of love, ♫

  • if they come near me, ♫

  • if they look into my eyes and kiss my hand. ♫

  • ♫ I don't understand myself, ♫

  • why they talk of magic, ♫

  • that no one withstands, ♫

  • if he sees me, if he passes by. ♫

  • But if the red light is on

  • in the middle of the night

  • and everybody listens to my song, ♫

  • then it is plain to see. ♫

  • My lips, they give so fiery a kiss, ♫

  • my limbs, they are supple and soft. ♫

  • It is written for me in the stars, ♫

  • thou shalt kiss, thou shalt love. ♫

  • My feet, they glide and float, ♫

  • my eyes, they lure and glow. ♫

  • And I dance as if entranced, 'cause I know, ♫

  • my lips give so fiery a kiss. ♫

  • In my veins, ♫

  • runs a dancer's blood, ♫

  • because my beautiful mother

  • was the Queen of dance

  • in the gilded Alcazar. ♫

  • She was so very beautiful, ♫

  • ♫ I often saw her in my dreams. ♫

  • If she beat the tambourine

  • to her beguiling dance, all eyes were glowing admiringly. ♫

  • She reawakened in me, ♫

  • mine is the same lot. ♫

  • ♫ I dance like her at midnight

  • and from deep within I feel: ♫

  • My lips, they give so fiery a kiss, ♫

  • my limbs, they are supple and soft. ♫

  • It is written for me in the stars, ♫

  • thou shalt kiss, thou shalt love. ♫

  • And I dance as if entranced, 'cause I know, ♫

  • my lips give so fiery a kiss. ♫

  • (Applause)
