¿De dónde venís, amore? (1947)

Part of a series or song cycle:

Cuatro madrigales amatorios

¿De dónde venís, amore?

¿De dónde venís, amore?
Bien sé yo de dónde.
¿De dónde venís, amigo?
Fuere yo testigo!
Bien sé yo de dónde.

Where hast thou been, my love?

Where hast thou been, my love?
I know well where.
Where hast thou been, my friend?
Were I a witness
I know well where!
