A Word In Spanish Lyrics

by Elton John

I don't know why, I just know I do
I just can't explain in this ol' language that I use
Something leaves me speechless each time that you approach
Each time you glide right through me as if I was a ghost

If I only could tell you
If you only would listen
I've got a line or two to use on you
I've got a romance we could christen

There's a word in Spanish I don't understand
But I heard it in a film one time spoken by the leading man
He said it with devotion, he sounded so sincere
And the words he spoke in Spanish brought the female lead to tears
A word in Spanish, a word in Spanish

If you can't comprehend, read it in my eyes
If you don't understand it's love in a thin disguise
And what it takes to move you each time that you resist
Is more than just a pretty face to prove that I exist

If I only could tell you
If you only would listen
I've got a line or two to use on you
I've got a romance we could christen

And there's a word in Spanish I don't understand
But I heard it in a film one time spoken by the leading man
He said it with devotion, he sounded so sincere
And the words he spoke in Spanish brought the female lead to tears
A word in Spanish, a word in Spanish

When manners make no difference
And my gifts all lay undone
I trade my accent in on chance
And fall back on a foreign tongue

And there's a word in Spanish I don't understand
But I heard it in a film one time spoken by the leading man
He said it with devotion, he sounded so sincere
And the words he spoke in Spanish brought the female lead to tears
A word in Spanish, a word in Spanish
There's a word in Spanish, a word in Spanish
