Frenesi

Writer(s): Albert Dominguez (Spanish) / Ray Charles / S.K. Russell
(from the CD It’s All So New)

Some time ago, I wandered down into old Mexico
While I was there, I felt romance everywhere
Moon was shining bright, and I could hear laughing voices in the night
Everyone was gay, This was the start of their holiday

It was fiesta down in Mexico, and so I stopped a while to see the show
I knew that frenesí meant “Please love me” and I could say frenesí.
A lovely seńorita caught my eye, I stood enchanted as she wandered by
And never knowing that it come from me, I gently sighed frenesí.
She stopped and raised her eyes to mine, Her lips just pleaded to be kissed
Her eyes were soft as candle-shine, so how was I to resist?
And now without a heart to call my own, a greater happiness I’ve never known
Because her kisses are for me alone, who wouldn’t say frenesí?

Bésame tu a mí, bésame igual que mi boca te besó
Dame el frenesí, qui mi locura te dió, quien si no fui yo
Pudo enseńarte el camino del amor, muerto mi altivez
Cuando mi orgullo rodo a tus pies,
Quiero que vivas solo para mí, y que tu vayas por donde yo voy
Para que mi alma sea no mas de ti, bésame con frenesí.
Dame la luz que tiene tu mirar, y la ansiedad que entre tus labios vi
Esa locura de vivir y amar, que es mas que amor frenesí
Hay en el beso que te di, alma, piedad, corazón
Dime que sabes tu sentir, lo mismo que siento yo
Quiero que vivas solo para mí, y que tu vayas por donde yo voy
Para que mi alma sea no mas de ti, bésame con frenesí
