Thread Name: Lyr Req: Ladino lyrics for Misirlou
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Ladino lyrics for Misirlou
I'm delighted to have the lyrics to the Ladino version, but would someone please explain to me how the first line, "No pretendas mas que," scans with the melodic phrase for that line, which seems to call for at least 3 more syllables?    I mean, do you stretch "pretendas" out over 5 notes or "mas" over 3 notes?

If anyone has a link to an audio of the Ladino version, I would love to hear it.
