BEGIN THE BEGUINE by JULIO IGLESIAS

This year the look of this site has been changed, mainly to make it easier to read on a wider range of devices. I have also tried to make it easier to navigate. For instance you can now choose the categories Spanish, French or German pop lyrics if you want to see songs in just one language.

This is the 200th post in the Spanish Pop Lyrics category. I think the time has come to finally give Julio Iglesias his place on this blog!

“Begin the Beguine” was written by Cole Porter in 1935. The first hit version was an instrumental take by Artie Shaw in 1938, and since then it has been recorded by countless artists. Julio’s Spanish adaptation hit number one in the UK charts in 1981.

BEGIN THE BEGUINE

When they begin the beguine
Quiero sentir
Las cosas de siempre
Quiero saber
Si tú aun me quieres
Quiero volver a empezar
 
When they begin the beguine
Quiero saber
Que fue de tu vida
Quiero saber
Si todo se olvida
Para volver a empezar
 
Yo que siempre jugué con tu amor hasta el final
Y seguro yo estaba que tú aun me querías
Hoy al ver que ya todo acabó 
que no daría
Para volver a empezar
 
Día a día te hacías querer un poco más
¿Quién me iba a decir 
que una vez te perdería?
Y hoy al verme tan solo sin ti 
que no daría
Para volver a empezar
BEGIN THE BEGUINE

When they begin the beguine
I want to feel
The same old things
I want to know 
If you still want me
I want to go back to the beginning
 
When they begin the beguine
I want to know
What has happened in your life
I want to know
If all is forgotten
To go back to the beginning
 
I played games with your love right up to the end
And I was so sure that you still loved me
Today, now that I see it’s all over
What wouldn’t I give
To go back to the beginning
 
Day after day you made me want you a little more ??
Who was going to tell me
that one day I would lose you?
Today, finding myself all alone without you
What wouldn’t I give
To go back to the beginning
