Dos gardenias
(Two gardenias)

Cuban

Dos gardenias para ti
Con ellas quiero decir
Te quiero, te adoro, mi vida.
Ponles toda tu atención
Porque son tu corazón y el mío.

Dos gardenias para ti
Que tendrán todo el calor de un beso
De esos besos que te di
Y que jamás encontraras
En el calor de otro querer.

A tu lado vivirán y te hablarán
Como cuando estás conmigo
Y hasta creerás
Que te dirán te quiero

Pero si un atardecer
Las gardenias de mi amor se mueren
Es porque han adivinado
Que tu amor se ha marchitado
Porque existe otro querer
Two gardenias for you
With them I mean to say
"I love you, I adore you, my love"
Give them all of your attention
Because they represent your heart and mine

Two gardenias for you
They will have the warmth of a kiss
Of one of those kisses I gave you
And that you'll never find
In the warmth of another lover

The flowers will live and will talk to you
Just as when you are with me
And you will believe
That they will actually say "I love you" to you

But if one afternoon
The gardenias of my love die
It's because they have guessed
That your love for me has withered
Because there's another lover
