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
