We were thrilled to discover this recording on Emily’s Benny Goodman CD. “Amapola” is the Spanish for Poppy.
Amapola, my pretty little poppy
You’re like that lovely flower so sweet and heavenly,
Since I found you, my heart is wrapped around you
And loving you, it seems to beat a rhapsody.
Amapola, the pretty little poppy
Must copy it’s endearing charms from you.
Amapola, Amapola, how I long to hear you say “I love you.”
