Spanish Eyes


—for Arnold Lopez

In a little while—
Surely you’ll be mine
In a little while I’ll be
Back there again

This hurt won’t—
Hurt any more
And I’ll be home
Home again

When I take—
A deep breath
I’ll be back then
Again with you

If I come—
Crawling back
To you will
You be there?

In a little while—
Spanish eyes
My, how you’ve
Grown, slow down

Slow down—
My beating heart
Slow me, slow down
My beating heart

That guy—
That guy, oh when
I saw him in the
YMCA showers

Slow down—
My beatin heart
Turn it on, turn
It on, slow, slowly

A Spanish guy—
With Spanish eyes
When the night
Takes a deep breath

In a little while—
You blew my mind
That guy, that guy
It’s been a little while

Slow down my heart—
South of the tracks
Slowly, slowly, slow
Down my beatin heart
