madrid lyrics – nat king cole

madrid, madrid
where is my love
why did you let me
leave my love

at the airport in sunny spain
i had two hours to catch a plane
i was lonely as i could be
until a senorita smiled at me

there was music and sweet guitars
and in her eyes were a million stars
she was lovely beyond compare
and in that moment
i had learned to care

she was to me, a serenade
a melody that my heart had played
and all too soon, i had to go
she understood that i loved her so

i waved goodbye, she waved goodbye
and from my window, i could see her cry
i went away and when i did
i left my heart with her in old madrid

i waved goodbye, she waved goodbye
and from my window, i could see her cry
i went away and when i did
i left my heart with her in old madrid

madrid, madrid
please tell my love that
she is all i’m dreaming of
