8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Night in Madrid, blue and tender,
Spanish moon makes silver splendor.
Music throbbing, plaintive sobbing notes of a guitar,
While ardent Caballeros serenade:
Lady Of Spain, I adore you,
Right from the night I first saw you,
My heart has been yearning for you,
What else could any heart do?
Lady Of Spain, I'm appealing,
Why should my lips be concealing,
All that my eyes are revealing?
Lady Of Spain, I love you.
