Elton John - "A Word In Spanish" lyrics

don't know why I just know I do I just can't explain In this 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
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

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

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
