Flor de invernadero Nino Bravo Translation Meaning and Lyrics

Meaning

The song 'Flor de invernadero' by 'Nino Bravo' means 'Greenhouse flower' in English.

Review

I don't suppose Nino Bravo was actually singing to a flower in a green house, he sings with such passion, it would be hard to believe a flower could engender such emotion. 

Without interpreting the lyrics however, it's a song about a flower that's grown up inside a green house during the winter.  It's never experienced wind or rain. It does seem like quite a placid flower; as it nothing seems to have phased it. 

Nino is keen to get it to come with him and see bright sunshine and the beauty of the sky and show it true love.   He may be talking to a woman too, of course;  maybe to a woman whose been locked away for some reason.

It's a absolute classic late 60s/early 70s song - kind of a Spanish Elvis/early Pink Floyd sound with big band orchestration - and Nino bangs it out beautifully.  Real shivers down the spine stuff.  Wonderful.  It is a little sad, and I'm no musician, but I think there's a fair amount of minor key in the sound-track.

The video from YouTube is some old still snaps of Nino Bravo.

The lyrics are not the normal run of the mill love song's vocabularly either.  I learnt many new words here:

'Invernadero' - the title (and the reason I found this song because every time a builder comes round and I can never remember the word for green house) in Spanish it seems to mean 'summer-maker'.  From 'verano' meaning summer, and the -dero suffix meaning 'maker'.   Don't confuse it with the word 'invierno' which means winter!

Also 'empeño' - meaning effort, 'pecado' meaning sin, and 'marchite' meaning wither.

Couple of nice conjugations: pusiste & escuchaste for past imperfect poner and escuchar you-form.

There's some subjunctive use for fan's of that.

I'd never heard of Nino Bravo before - seems his life was cut short by a car accident.  What a shame - this is a wonderful song.

There is a museum near Valencia that I might pop into next time I'm down on the coast.
