Te Quiero Dijiste  (  Magic is the Moonlight  ) 

< instrumental opening > 
 
Take care when you say "Te Quiero"
Your lips may impart sweeter things 
than your heart means to say . . .
 
Take care when you say "Te Quiero"
Don't whisper tonight 
words that fade in the light of the day . . .
 
Who knows if the spell that we're under
will still be as strong 
when the moon is no longer there?
 
A heart that swayed in a moment such as this
may be betrayed 
by the madness of a kiss
when you say "Te Quiero" . . .
take care!
 
< instrumental break > 
 
Who knows if the spell that we're under
will still be as strong 
when the moon is no longer there?
 
A heart that swayed in a moment such as this
may be betrayed 
by the madness of a kiss
when you say "Te Quiero" . . .
take care!
