Mily Balakirev (1837 - 1910)
Text by Mikhail Larionovich Mikhailov (1829-1865)
Song text translation:
Are you sleeping, my maiden? Open the door quickly, the long awaited hour has struck. We can flee now, and if you have not yet put on your little satin slipper, there is no need, for our road will take us over the stream. We shall cross the waters of the Guadalaviar, my friend. The long awaited hour has struck. You are mine now, and I am yours! You are mine now, and I am yours!
