A Word in Spanish  Elton John

Elton John/Bernie Taupin
[D]I don't know why
[G]I just know I do
[C]I just can't explain
[G]In this language that I use
Something leaves me speechless
Each time that you approach
Each time you glide right through me
As if I was a ghost
[D]If I only could [C]tell [G]you
[G]If you only would lis[D]ten[A]
[A]I've got a [Bm]line or[C] two t[D]o use on[E] you
[E]I've got a ro[C]mance we [G]could christen[D]
And[A] there's a word in Sp[Dm]anish
[Fm6]I don't understand[C]
But I he[C]ard it in a [Bdim]film one time
[E7]Spoken by the le[F]ading man
He said it with devotion
He sounded so sincere
And the words he spoke in Spanish
Brought the female lead to tears
A wo[G]rd in Spani[Am]sh, a word in[F] Spa[G]nish[Am]
If you can't comprehend
Read it in my eyes
If you don't understand it's love
In a thin disguise
And what it takes to move you
Each time that you resist
Is more than just a pretty face
To prove that I exist
When man[Dm]ners make no diffe[G]rence
And my gift[C]s all lay undone
I tr[Dm]ade my accent in on chance
And fall b[B]ack on a foreign tong[E]ue
