MIDI File

Consuelo: I'm a Cuban girl,
From the island Pearl
that's the fairest gem that smiles
In the glittering coronet of isles,
She's the land that's best of the golden West
with her beauty in my heart,
Her blossom on my curl
I am a Cuban girl.
When I love I'm as warm
as the sun that falls on her palm trees waving.
When I hate I can storm
As wildly as her hurricane raving!
So beware of me,
Have a care of me,
Think again what you're doing,
You who come sighing and wooing;
It may prove your undoing.
Tenors: Men say you may
Reward a lover one day,
And learn to part with your heart.
Consuelo: Then, ah me,
I shall know as my pulses beat faster,
At last I have met with the love that I crave,
He is my master
I'm his slave, yes, his slave.
How I will love him and more
Than ever did woman before!
I'm a Cuban girl,
From the island Pearl
that's the fairest gem that smiles
In the glittering coronet of isles,
'Tis the land that's best of the golden West
with her beauty in my heart,
Her blossom on my curl
I am a Cuban girl,
In my soul I'm a Cuban...
Tenors: She is the pearl of the girls
As her island is gem of the pearls!
Fair are her smiles as the sun on the Queen of the isles.
Girls: She's a Cuban girl of the golden West
With its beauty in her heart.
Its blossom on her curl,
she is a Cuban,
With blossom on her curl,
a Cuban girl.
Consuelo: I'm a girl from the fair island pearl
that's the fairest of gems
in the glittering crown of the isles,
I'm a Cuban girl,
From the island Pearl
It's the fairest gem of the west
in the land of the Cuban.
Ensemble: She's the land that's best
It's the land of the golden West
In the glittering Cuba Queen of the isles,
and the fairest of all we love!
