MARTA Y LOS ESCAPARATES
*
Marta habla inglés,
Habla francés, habla italiano
y en el jardin de papá
Podrá descansar
todo el verano
Marta habla inglés,
Habla francés, habla italiano
fin de semana de Abril para descansar
Y montar a caballo
 *
O irse a Londres
A envolver para regalo
montando escaparates Marta,
hay que empezar desde abajo
hay que empezar desde abajo
*
Marta habla inglés,
habla francés, habla italiano
Ha encontrado el amor,
tiene perfil y es educado
Marta se ha hecho mayor
en el sector, en el mercado
fin de semana de Abril
para disfrutar montando a caballo
*
De los jesuítas a Shangai
tu padre es un señor
Pasa del papel couché,
piensa en el papel salmón
MARTA AND THE WINDOW DISPLAYS
*
Marta speaks English,
Speaks French, speaks Italian
In her dad’s garden
She’ll be able to relax
for the whole summer
Marta speaks English,
Speaks French, speaks Italian
A weekend in April to relax
And go horse-riding
*
Or she leaves for London
To wrap presents
Dressing windows, Marta,
You have to start from the bottom
You have to start from the bottom
*
Marta speaks English,
Speaks French, speaks Italian
She’s found love,
She’s got a profile and she’s educated
Marta has grown up
In the sector, in the market
A weekend in April
To enjoy herself horse-riding
*
To the Jesuits of Shanghai
Your father is a gentleman
He passes through high society,
Think about the gossip magazines
*

GUITAR CHORDS:

Chorus: C – G – F – G

Verse: Am – Em – F – G F – G

GRAMMAR:

Tener Que (Have To) is one of the most useful expressions in Spanish.

Hay Que has a very similar meaning, but is used in a more general context (You/Everyone has to….)

 “Hay que empezar desde abajo…” (not just Marta, the rest of us too!)
