Words by Clifton Bingham. Music by H. Trotere.

Long years ago, in old Madrid.
Where softly sighs of love the light guitar.
Two sparkling eyes a lattice hid,
Two eyes as darkly bright as love's own start
There on the casement ledge When day was o'er,
A tiny hand was lightly laid:
A face look'd out, as from the river shore
There stole a tender serenade!
Rung the lover's happy song,
Light and low, from shore to shore,
But ah! the river flow'd along
Between them evermore.
Come, my love, the stars are shining,
Time is fly lag, love is sighing,
Come, for thee a heart is pining,
Here alone I wait for thee!

Far, far away from old Madrid
Her lover fell, long years ago, for Spain;
A convent veil those eyes hid.
And all the vows that love had sigh'd were vain!
But still between the dusk and night, 'tis said,
Her white hand opens the lattice wide,
The faint sweet echo of that serenade
Floats weirdly o'er the misty tide!
Still she lists her lover's song,
Still he sings upon the shore.
Though flows a stream than all more strong
Between them evermore.
Come, my love, the stare are shining,
Time is flying, love is sighing.
Come, for thee a heart is piling,
Here alone I wait for thee!
