a word in spanish lyrics – elton john

i 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 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
it’s 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 got 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 word 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 gift’s 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 word he spoke in spanish
brought the female lead to tears
a word in spanish
ooh ooh a word in spanish
there’s a word in spanish
ooh ooh a word in spanish
