The wine beneath the bed,
The things we've done and said
And all the memories that come glancing back to me
In my loneliness 
You're standing in the breach  Beyond that stretch, but our love will reach  Unconsciousness that find me sometimes wondering
 Where you're at.
Hmm, take me back again,
Take me back one more time, Spanish rose. 

The way you pulled the gate
 Behind you when you said, "It ain't too late,
Come on, let's have a ball
And swing the town tonight."
And hoping you'd come through 
And many others, too,
And all the friends we used to have in days gone by,
I'm wondering 
If you'll take me back again,
Take me back one more time, Spanish rose. 

And when the lights went out
And no one was abandoning the country in full bloom,
In the room we danced 
And many hearts were torn
And when the word went around that everything was wrong 
And couldn't be put right 
It tore me up, it tore me up. 

In slumber you did sleep,
The window I did creep 
And touch your raven hair and sing that song
 Again to you.
You did not even wince,
You thought I was the Prince 
To come and take you from your misery 
And lonely castle walls.
Ah, take me back again,
Take me back one more time, Spanish rose.

Ah ah, ah ah,
Mmmj, mmm,
Da da da di da da da...
