What Romantic Fools We Mortals Be


Perfidia

written by Alberto Dominguez
English lyrics by Milton Leeds

To you

My heart cries out “Perfidia”
For I find you, the love of my life
In somebody else’s arms

Your eyes are echoing “Perfidia”
Forgetful of the promise of love
You’re sharing another’s charms

With a sad lament my dreams are faded like a broken melody
While the gods of love look down and laugh
At what romantic fools we mortals be

And now
I find my love was not for you
And so I take it back with a sigh
Perfidia’s won
Goodbye

With a sad lament my dreams are faded like a broken melody
While the gods of love look down and laugh
At what romantic fools we mortals be

And now
I find my love was not for you
And so I take it back with a sigh
Perfidia’s won
Goodbye
Goodbye
