YO ME PREGUNTO By THE VALRAYS February 2, 2012

Filed under: 1960s,Valrays — spanishpoplyrics @ 10:30 am

The Valrays were a white doo-wop group from New York. This charming 1964 single was their biggest hit. Apparently the group just preferred the sound of this song in Spanish (their other songs were in English). I’d be interested to hear more doo-wop in Spanish – especially any groups from Spain.

YO ME PREGUNTO

Yo me pregunto
En que pensaras
me pregunto
la fiesta con quién
me pregunto
¿Esta noche que harás?

Yo me pregunto
Si triste tu estás
me pregunto
Si lloras también
me pregunto
¿Esta noche que harás?

Yo me pregunto
Por qué nos separamos
Y si supieras
cuanto te adoro
vuelve mi alma
¿Por qué dudamos?

Yo me pregunto
Si en otro pensarás
me pregunto
si yo quieres también
me pregunto
¿Esta noche que harás?
I WONDER

I wonder
What you’re thinking about
I wonder
Who you’re with at the party
I wonder
What will you do tonight?

I wonder
If you’re sad
I wonder
If you’re crying too
I wonder
What will you do tonight?

I wonder
Why we split up
And if you know
How much I adore you
Come back my love
Why are we hesitating?

I wonder
Are you thinking about someone else
I wonder
If you love me too
I wonder
What will you do tonight?
GRAMMAR:
Yo me pregunto means literally ‘I ask myself’
but I think ‘I wonder’ is a better translation.

Unsurprisingly, the grammar isn’t perfect in the original lyrics!
For example ‘Si yo quieres’ should be ‘Si me quieres’.

CHORDS / ACORDES:

D – Bm – G – A (repeat)
D – G – D
G – D – G – A
