Billy -- thank you SO very much for that link. Way back - that used to be mine and my hubbie's  'song'.  I have no idea why - neither of us were Spanish - but we both loved it -- at that time it was the Al Martino version.

I haven't heard it for years - so that was such a lovely reminder of those days.

I've just found my CD for The Mavericks - Trampoline - 1998 - brilliant!
