Some time ago, I wandered down into old Mexico

While I was there, I felt romance everywhere

Moon was shining bright, and I could hear laughing voices in the night

Everyone was gay, This was the start of their holiday

 

It was fiesta down in Mexico, and so I stopped a while to see the show

I knew that frenesˇ meant "Please love me" and I could say frenesˇ.

A lovely se¤orita caught my eye, I stood enchanted as she wandered by

And never knowing that it come from me, I gently sighed frenesˇ.

She stopped and raised her eyes to mine, Her lips just pleaded to be kissed

Her eyes were soft as candle-shine, so how was I to resist?

And now without a heart to call my own, a greater happiness I've never known

Because her kisses are for me alone, who wouldn't say frenesˇ?

 

B‚same tu a mˇ, b‚same igual que mi boca te bes˘

Dame el frenesˇ, qui mi locura te di˘, quien si no fui yo

Pudo ense¤arte el camino del amor, muerto mi altivez

Cuando mi orgullo rodo a tus pies,

Quiero que vivas solo para mˇ, y que tu vayas por donde yo voy

Para que mi alma sea no mas de ti, b‚same con frenesˇ.

Dame la luz que tiene tu mirar, y la ansiedad que entre tus labios vi

Esa locura de vivir y amar, que es mas que amor frenesˇ

Hay en el beso que te di, alma, piedad, coraz˘n

Dime que sabes tu sentir, lo mismo que siento yo

Quiero que vivas solo para mˇ, y que tu vayas por donde yo voy

Para que mi alma sea no mas de ti, b‚same con frenesˇ
