Lyrics

Draw this picture:
a lovely girl in a hot bath,
listening to Sinatra.
Here’s the story as she told it to me:

behind above and under
thinking of you
while bathing to Sinatra
remembering the things you do

gradually a feeling
was growing so strong
instead of just relaxing
I helped it along

DESPELOTE*
que quilombo
el agua en el piso
y se me perdió el mundo

next day while i was working
daydreaming of you
while listening to mozart
Imagining magic flutes

gradually a feeling
was growing so strong
instead of concentrating
I helped it along

despelote
que quilombo
papeles en el piso
y se me perdió el mundo

*(English translation: both "despelote" and "quilombo" are Argentine slang loosely meaning "fantastic disorder/pandemonium." Next: water (agua)/papers (papeles) on the floor and I blacked out (se me perdió el mundo, literally "I lost the world")
