Lyrics by Bernie Taupin and Music by Elton John


Intro: A D | G D  } 2 times

A
I don’t know why,
              D   Dsus4 D
I just know I do,
G
I just can’t explain
        F#m      D/F#   A    Asus2
In this language that I use.

A
Something leaves me speechless,
                     D       Dsus4 D
Each time that you approach.
     G
Each time you glide right through me
   F#m  D/F#  A
As if I was a ghost.

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

Chorus:
  E/B                      Am/C
     And there’s a word in Spanish
     F            G
     I don’t understand.
                         F#m75-
     But I heard it in a film
              B7/Eb         C
     One time spoken by the leading man.
  E/B                  Am/C
     He said it with devotion,
        F             G
     He sounded so sincere.
                               F#m75-
     And the words he spoke in Spanish
                 B7/Eb          C
     Brought the female lead to tears.
  D            Em       D C
     A word in Spanish,
  D            Em       D
     A word in Spanish.

   A
If you can’t comprehend,
              D
Read it in my eyes.
   G
If you don’t understand it’s love
F#m  D/F#    A      Asus2
In a thin disguise.

    A
And what it takes to move you,
                     D     Dsus4 D
Each time that you resist,
   G
Is more than just a pretty face
   F#m        D/F# A
To prove that I exist.

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

Chorus:
  E/B                      Am/C
     And there’s a word in Spanish
     F            G
     I don’t understand.
                         F#m75-
     But I heard it in a film

     Brought the female lead to tears.
  D            Em       D C
     A word in Spanish,
  D            Em
     A word in Spanish.

Bridge:
        Am              D7
   When manners make no difference,
          G6
   And my gifts all lay undone.
     Am
   I trade my accent in on chance
       F#7             B
   And fall back on a foreign tongue.
