8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I dream of a pretty brown hair'd maid in Spain.
Who fans all the sparks of love into a flame.
I wish I could be with her again.
In that sunny land where they play love's sweet game.
Amapola my pretty Amapola,
You are the sweetest of all girls in sunny Spain.
And with you dear beneath the skies of blue dear,
Across the rumbling ocean we can both remain.
Amapola my loving Amapola,
I'm trying to forget you but in vain.
Amapola, Amapola,
You're the sweetest little girl in sunny Spain.
