They Are Going To Ask You Transcript

They are going to ask you.

You will tell them

that you went to the movies alone;

that you dressed pretty just for yourself;

that you didn’t know me at all;

that I was the one who initiated;

that I did not have tickets;

that you only came to see the movie;

that I only came to see you;

that I seemed like a very pleasant boy;

that one thing led to another;

that we ended up in my car;

that we held a book of poetry together;

that the words that came out of my mouth

are the ones that led me to yours;

And they will ask you:

And how does he kiss?

And that only God knows.

Te van a preguntar Transcript

Les dirás

que fuiste al cine sola;

que te vestiste guapa solo para ti;

que no me conocías de nada;

que yo fui el que empezó;

que yo no tenía tickets;

que tú solo viniste a ver la película;

que yo solo vine a verte a ti;

que yo parecía un chico muy majo;

que una cosa llevo a la otra;

que acabamos en mi coche;

que aguantamos un libro de poesía juntos;

que las palabras que salían de mi boca

son las que me llevaron a la tuya;

Y ellas te preguntarán:

¿Y qué tal besa?

Y eso solo sabe Dios.
