lyrics

Old Barcelona shimmering grey in the rain,
You wiped the lens of your camera, and I did the same.
Who would have thought that this one act would bring us
to where we are today?
Who will believe this, back in Badalona?
She was from out there and I was pretending to be,
From somewhere exotic that suited her fine pedigree.
She saw right through this, but still she offered to take me for a while.
Who will believe this, back in Badalona?

From the Roses of Old England
to Persia’s fragrant plains
There’s none to compare,
none to compare,
You won’t find finer in this world,
anywhere, than the Flowers of Spain.

We’d sit in the cafe and watch the locksmith work his key.
I was surprised when he handed it finished, to me.
“It’s for the senorita, maybe now you’ll unlock her heart!”
Who will believe this, back in Badalona?
She said, “Whoa now ‘lover!’ there’s tenement dust on your shoes!
Yes, I could love you, if only I were free to choose.
But in a week I’m to marry, and soon all my soirees in high society..”
Who will believe this, back in Badalona?

From the Roses of Old England
to Persia’s fragrant plains
There’s none to compare,
none to compare,
You won’t find finer in this world,
anywhere, than the Flowers of Spain.

From the Roses of Old England
to Persia’s fragrant plains
There’s none to compare,
none to compare,
You won’t find finer in this world,
anywhere, than the Flowers of Spain.
