Usted me cuenta que nosotros dos 
Fuimos amantes 
Y que llegamos juntos a vivir 
Algo importante 
Me temo que lo suyo es un error 
Yo estoy de hace tiempo sin amor 
Y el ultimo que tuve fue un borron 
En mi cuaderno 
Usted me cuenta que hasta le rogue 
Que no se fuera 
Y que su adios dejo a mi corazon 
Sin primavera 
Que anduve por ahi de bar en bar 
Llorando sin podermela olvidar 
Gastandome la piel en recordar 
Su juramento 
Perdon, no la quisiera lastimar 
Tal Vez, lo que me cuenta sea verdad 
Lamento contrariarla pero yo 
No la recuerdo
