Lyrics by Bernie Taupin and Music by Elton John


Intro: D G | C G  } 2 times

D
I don’t know why,
              G   Gsus4 G
I just know I do,
C
I just can’t explain
        Bm       G/B    D    Dsus2
In this language that I use.

D
Something leaves me speechless,
                     G       Gsus4 G
Each time that you approach.
     C
Each time you glide right through me
   Bm   G/B   D
As if I was a ghost.

                   C/G  G
   If I only could tell you,
                     D/A A
   If you only would listen,
              Bm      C      D      E
   I’ve got a line or two to use on you,
              C       G/B          D
   I’ve got a romance we could christen.

Chorus:
  A/E                      Dm/F    Bb           C
     And there’s a word in Spanish I don’t understand.
                         Bm75-         E7/G#         F
     But I heard it in a film one time spoken by the leading man.
  A/E                  Dm/F       Bb            C
     He said it with devotion, he sounded so sincere.
                               Bm75-               E7/G#          F
     And the words he spoke in Spanish brought the female lead to tears.
  G            Am       G F
     A word in Spanish,
  G            Am       G
     A word in Spanish.

   D
If you can’t comprehend,
              G
Read it in my eyes.
   C
If you don’t understand it’s love
Bm   G/B     D      Dsus2
In a thin disguise.

    D
And what it takes to move you,
                     G     Gsus4 G
Each time that you resist,
   C
Is more than just a pretty face
   Bm         G/B D
To prove that I exist.

                   C/G  G
   If I only could tell you,
                     D/A A
   If you only would listen,
              Bm      C      D      E
   I’ve got a line or two to use on you,
              C       G/B          D
   I’ve got a romance we could christen.

Chorus:
  A/E                      Dm/F    Bb           C
     And there’s a word in Spanish I don’t understand.
                         Bm75-         E7/G#         F
     But I heard it in a film one time spoken by the leading man.
  A/E                  Dm/F       Bb            C
     He said it with devotion, he sounded so sincere.
                               Bm75-               E7/G#          F
     And the words he spoke in Spanish brought the female lead to tears.
  G            Am       G F
     A word in Spanish,
  G            Am
     A word in Spanish.

Bridge:
        Dm              G7
   When manners make no difference,
          C6
   And my gifts all lay undone.
     Dm
   I trade my accent in on chance
       B7              E
   And fall back on a foreign tongue.

Chorus:

     And the words he spoke in Spanish brought the female lead to tears.
     G             Am       G F
     Oh, a word in Spanish,
          G              Am       G F
     Ooh, ooh, a word in Spanish.
   G                   Am       G F
     There’s a word in Spanish.
          G              Am       G
     Ooh, ooh, a word in Spanish.
