Con Su Blanca Palidez

(A Whiter Shade of Pale)


Martin Awsop writes to BtP:
A third set of words to go with this title: the new version only used by Los Rebeldes and translate the lyric words by Carlos Segarra adaptation (leader and singer of this group ). Thatís for me more literal of the original and maked for this period that we are liviní.

El ultimo fandango

The last fandango

al borde del amanecer

at the border to dawn

Con la luna bailando

Odiando el nuevo dia

Hating the new day

Aunque vendra la luz

even though the light comes

a mi me traera la oscuridad

it took me the darkness

Se que el destino es tan cruel

I know that destiny itís so cruel

no le suplicare piedad

donít to beg for mercy

Cuando el sol salga

When the sun comes

solo me dejara

only let me

Ese aroma de mujer

y el recuerdo de una cara

and the remember of a face

y su blanca palidez

and her whiter pale

Ya se acerca el alba

Now it close the dawn

y se que con el se ira el placer

and I know that with it go out the pleasure

de una dulce virginidad

of a sweet virginity

Hasta ahora ha sido mia

Until now sheís been mine

y ya no la puedo retener

and now I canít her keepiní

ni a ella ni a la felicidad

nor to her neither the happiness

Ya no tengo el poder

Now I canít the power

Se marcha con la luz

Cuando el sol salga
