Subject: Lyr Add: AY CARMELA
From: Q (Frank Staplin)
Date: 26 Apr 06 - 12:57 AM

"Ay Carmela" is an old song, apparently originated and sung by the Partisans who fought against Napoleon's army in Spain in 1808. It again became popular during the Spanish Civil War, in several versions, most notably as "Viva la quinta brigada," "Viva la quince ...," etc., as well as "Ay Carmela" with new verses.

Lyr. Add: AY CARMELA

El ejército del Ebro
Rumba rumba rumba la
El ejército del Ebro
Rumba rumba rumba la
Una noche el río paso
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
Pero nada pueden bombas
Rumba rumba rumba la
Pero nada pueden bombas
Rumba rumba rumba la
Donde sobra corazón
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
Donde sobra corazón
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela.

Contraataques muy rabiosos
Rumba rumba rumba la
Contraataques muy rabiosos
Rumba rumba rumba la
Deberemos resistir
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
Deberemos resistir
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
Pero igual que combatimos
Rumba rumba rumba la
Pero iqual que combatimos
Rumba rumba rumba la
Prometemos resistir
Ay carmela, ay Carmela
Prometemos resistir
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela.

Ay Carmela
The army of the Ebro
Rumba rumba rumba la
The army of the Ebro
Rumba rumba rumba la
Crossed the river one night
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
Crossed the river one night
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
But bombs will never reach to
Rumba rumba rumba la
But bombs will never reach to
Rumba rumba rumba la
Where there's plenty of courage
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
Where there's plenty of courage
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela.

Heavy counter-attacks
Rumba rumba rumba la
Heavy counter-attacks
rumba rumba rumba la
We have to resist
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
We have to resist
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
Whatever we fight against
Rumba rumba rumba la
Whatever we fight against
Rumba rumba rumba la
We promise to resist
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela
We promise to resist
Ay Carmela, ay Carmela.
