Luciano Pavarotti sings "Malia
English translation of the lyrics
The Charm (or The Spell)
What was there in the flower that you gave me?
Maybe a potion, a mysterious power!
In touching it, my heart trembled,
The perfume has disturbed my thoughts!
In the ethereal movement that you have,
Perhaps an enchantment comes with you?
The air through which you go vibrates,
A flower blooms where your foot passes!
I ask not what blessed place
Was your home until now!
I ask you not if you are a nymph, a fairy,
If a pale spirit.
But what is there in your fatal glance?
What do you have in your magic voice?
If you look at me, intoxication assails me,
If you speak to me, I feel myself die!
