Esperanza (Charles Aznavour song)

"Esperanza" is a 1961 hit song by Charles Aznavour with French lyrics written by Aznavour after the original instrumental composition by Ramón Cabrera Argotes.[1] The Aznavour version commences "Esperanza, esperanza, le bonheur en nos coeurs...".

The Spanish original also achieved popularity in its own right particularly the Spanish-language version by Nino de Murcia, but the French version of Aznavour was successful even in Spanish speaking countries.[2]
