Lyrics by Bernie Taupin and Music by Elton John


Intro: F# B | E B  } 2 times

F#
I don’t know why,
              B   Bsus4 B
I just know I do,
E
I just can’t explain
        Ebm      B/Eb   F#   F#sus2
In this language that I use.

F#
Something leaves me speechless,
                     B       Bsus4 B
Each time that you approach.
     E
Each time you glide right through me
   Ebm  B/Eb  F#
As if I was a ghost.

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

Chorus:
  C#/G#                    F#m/A
     And there’s a word in Spanish
     D            E
     I don’t understand.
                         Ebm75-
     But I heard it in a film
              G#7/C         A
     One time spoken by the leading man.
  C#/G#                F#m/A
     He said it with devotion,
        D             E
     He sounded so sincere.
                               Ebm75-
     And the words he spoke in Spanish
                 G#7/C          A
     Brought the female lead to tears.
  B            C#m      B A
     A word in Spanish,
  B            C#m      B
     A word in Spanish.

   F#
If you can’t comprehend,
              B
Read it in my eyes.
   E
If you don’t understand it’s love
Ebm  B/Eb    F#     F#sus2
In a thin disguise.

    F#
And what it takes to move you,
                     B     Bsus4 B
Each time that you resist,
   E
Is more than just a pretty face
   Ebm        B/Eb F#
To prove that I exist.

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

Chorus:
  C#/G#                    F#m/A
     And there’s a word in Spanish
     D            E
     I don’t understand.
                         Ebm75-
     But I heard it in a film
              G#7/C         A
     One time spoken by the leading man.
  C#/G#                F#m/A
     He said it with devotion,
        D             E
     He sounded so sincere.
                               Ebm75-
     And the words he spoke in Spanish
                 G#7/C          A
     Brought the female lead to tears.
  B            C#m      B A
     A word in Spanish,
  B            C#m
     A word in Spanish.

Bridge:
        F#m             B7
   When manners make no difference,
          E6
   And my gifts all lay undone.
     F#m
   I trade my accent in on chance
       Eb7             G#
   And fall back on a foreign tongue.
