Lyrics

Es la ocasión
Que yo buscaba con ilusión
Para ofrecer
Mis ensueños cantándole a usted
Temblando estoy
Con el miedo aquello que espero
Y sabe dios
Si se apiaden de mi aquí
Tened piedad
Perdóneme usted, yo no se rimar
Pero este vals
Lo doy con devoción
Yo quisiera poner ante usted
Los luceros
Y ser trovador
Mas comprendo
Que nunca podré
Alumbrar con luceros
Este vals
Oh sol de amor
Que ilumina con claro fulgor
La senda gris
De un artista que vive el dolor
En este vals
Las palabras en vano pretenden
Decir aquí
El cantar de mi corazón

Lyrics translation

It's the occasion
That I was looking forward to
To offer
My dreams singing to you
I'm shaking
With fear what I hope
And God knows
If you will have mercy on me here
Have mercy
Forgive me you, I will not rhyme
But this waltz
I give it with devotion
I would like to put before you
The stars
And be a troubadour
But I understand
That I can never
Lighting with skylights
It's waltz
Oh Sun of love
That illuminates with Clear Glow
The grey path
Of an artist who lives the pain
In this waltz
Words in vain claim
Say here
The singing of my heart
