Don McNatt: Music

I Wanna Speak Spanish

(Don McNatt)
Olah, my pretty senorita
I see the brightness and the sweetness in your eyes
I've never seen a face that sweeter
One look at you and I begin to realize
I wanna speak Spanish
I wanna speak Espanol like I grew up in Old Monterey
I wanna speak Spanish
And understand Spanish to hear every word she might say

I look around and see the faces
The food's not good here, but it fills up every night
She knows their orders and their places
They don't need languages for her to get it right

I wanna Speak Spanish
I want speak espanol, like I grew up in Old Monterey
I wanna Speak Spanish
and understand Spanish to hear every word she might say

I bought some books and tapes and software
signed up for night school, switched to Latin Radio
I've gotta tell her how much I care
I want the feature of this restaurant to go

I wanna speak Spanish
I wanna speak Espanol like I grew up in Old Monterey
I wanna speak Spanish
And understand Spanish to hear every word she might say

Right now, we talk about Tortillas
But she can tell that there is more I want to say
There's something in her Buenos Dias
That says she'd listen if I only learn the way,
And I know what I'd say..

I wanna speak Spanish
I wanna speak Espanol like I grew up in Old Monterey
I wanna speak Spanish
And understand Spanish to hear every word she might say
