Que jodido estoy

You can see me at minute 00:07, 2:15 and 03:00 doing my best Alan Lomax impression.

“Amapola (Pretty Little Poppy)” is a 1924 song by Cádiz-born composer José María Lacalle García (later Joseph Lacalle), with Spanish lyrics. After the composer died in 1937, English language lyrics were written by Albert Gamse. (From wikipedia)

Amapola
José María Lacalle García (1924)

Amapola, lindísima Amapola,
Será siempre mi alma tuya, sola.
Yo te quiero, amada niña mía,
Igual que ama la flor la luz del día.

Amapola, lindísima Amapola,
No seas tan ingrata, ámame.
Amapola, Amapola,
¿Cómo puedes tú vivir tan sola?
