Under Spanish Arcades

I came in down from the mountains, a stranger deserving a bed
Didn't know then how soon I would be leaving, giving up all that I had
The village was having fiesta, it may have been Thanksgiving Day
I laid down my tools and my saddle, when I was invited to stay

The castanets were a-clanging, a whisper came from behind
"This dance is the dance of a stranger, and I'll be your queen if you like ..."
I felt being burnt by her fire, her purpose was showing so clear
I followed her down to the shadows, surrendered to her with no fear

Lovely Senorita, be my pride tonight
With you I have no fears about tomorrow
Come on Marguerita, burn my skin tonight
Mmmmmh

She took me down so discreetly, I heard her voice in my ear
"Now come on stranger, release me, forever I will be your dear!"
The vow was so easily given, that night under Spanish arcades
The moon was as pale as Marguerita, I completely fell for her grace

Querida señorita, esta noche tu seràs mi amor
Contigo no tengo miedo de mañana
Venga Marguerita, esta noche tu quemaràs mi piel
Mmmmmh


Juanito

Her promised man Juanito, was famous all over the land
The owner of a precious hazienda, had ladies two at each hand
Being stabbed by the hand of a stranger, was one thing he was not aware
The moon was high on the mountain, when the deadly sin I did dare


Under Spanish Arcades (Reprise)

Now come on my Marguerita, and listen to the words that I say
I did what I did as your lover, our alliance is blessed by this day!
It was in blood we were leaving, she kept her promise so fair
But I heard the wires then whisper, "Your last days you never will share!"

Querida señorita, esta noche tu seràs mi amor
Contigo no tengo miedo de mañana
Venga Marguerita, esta noche tu quemaràs mi piel
Mmmmmh
