Sempre que baixo a la platja
cap al tard, al ferse fosc,
m'assec a la freda roca
abraçant-me ambdós genolls.
I la fresca m'embriaga
iem revifa el ventitjol;
em somriu la blanca lluna:
¡quína pau a tot l'entorn!

Al cap d'una bona estona
m'aixeco i cerco a l'aprop
quatre pedres i un diari
i amb branques seques faig foc.
I comença de les flames
la moguda enlluernant,
i als acords de la guitarra
l'habanera es va escampant.

M'acompanyen les estrelles
encastades al cel fosc,
i els llavis blancs de les ones
amb ses eternes remors.
Com s'enfila de les flames
la moguda enlluernant,
i el dolç sò de l'habanera
mar endins va penetrant.

Com xiula la cafetera
mig embriaga sobre el foc!
i el rom cremant,quína aroma
dintre de l'ennegrit pot.
mentre, segueix de les flames
la moguda vacillant
i al compàs de l'habanera
de nostàlgia es va impregnant.

Oh rosada de la fosca!
Oha caliu del morient foc!
Oh somriure de la lluna!
Oh invisible ventitjol!
Oh remors de les onades!
Oh estrelletes del cel fosc!
Per vos canto l'habanera
que m'en surt de dintre el cor!

(The red flames of the night’s fire…)
Whenever I go to the beach
on sunset near the darkness
I sit down on a wed rock
embracing my both knees…

just the fresh air delights me
well relaxed by the breeze;
for me smiles the white moon :
What a great peace is around!…

So then after a good while
I’m getting up, I look for
some stones and a paper
I set fire to some dry branches…

At the moment starts of flames
the fascinating scene,
under the chords of a guitar
the “Habanera” spreads out…

All the stars stay with me
all mounted in dark sky,
and the white lips of waves
with its perpetual buzzes!…

¡What is climbing of the flames
the fascinating scene!
The sweet sound ot the "Habanera"
gets inside out at sea…

¡What is whisling the pot-coffee
somewhat drunk on fire’s top!
The burnt rum: what an aroma!
into the blackened pot!…

Meanwhile it is going on
the fascinating scene,
by the sound of the "Habanera"
of nostalgia it impregnates!…

Well, of darkness the sweet dew!
Well,of dying fire the warmth!
Of the moon the sweet smile!
The nice invisible breeze
Of the waves the soft rippling!
The stars of the dark sky!
For you I’m singing the "Habanera"
which goes out from my heart!…
