Inez:

Let others seek the peaceful plain,
Amid the mountains let me reign;
Be mine the rugged crest,
Be mine the eagle's nest,
High in the ancient hills of Spain,
Be mine the rugged crest,
Be mine the eagle's nest,
High in the ancient hills of Spain,
High in the ancient hills of Spain.

Be mine the man who bears the knife,
Who for my smile would risk his life;
I'll take his manly hand,
And by his side I'll stand,
For I will be to him a loving wife,
I'll take his manly hand,
And by his side I'll stand,
For I will be to him a loving wife,
For I will be to him a loving wife.
