Lyrics

[Verse]
Ev’ning are crowded with memories,
Thrilling me again,
Like that night in Spain.
Someone is sharing my memories
Wonder does she grieve,
Ev’ry lovely ev’ning:

[Verse 2]
Somehow I keep on remembering,
Tears that said goodbye,
Shining in her eye,
Wonder does she keep remembering
Promises of mine
When the moon is shining:

[Chorus]
In a little Spanish town,
‘Twas on a night like this,
Stars were peekabooing down,
‘Twas on a night like this,
I whispered “Be true to me,”
And she sighed:“Si, Si,”
Many skies have turned to gray,
Because we’re far apart,
Many moons have passed away,
And still she’s in my heart,
We made a promise and sealed it with a kiss,
In a little Spanish town,
‘Twas on a night like this.
