Lyrics
I can feel your blackness and your manhood and your love
I can touch your whiteness and your oranges and your power

Spain  (Spain)
Yes, Mister Spain  (Spain)
Come put a star beside your name
Yes they are, Mister Spain

I can speak your own language, if you listen you will hear
I understand your crying, I understand your fear
And I know that you’re lonely  (lonely)
Yes I do  (yes I do)
Now I know what you’re missing  (missing)
Baby, you do too

Mister Spain
No, don’t do that, Mister Spain
Don’t you put another needle in your vein
Oh, Mister Spain, please

I can feel it raining on your secrets and your dreams
And I understand your reasons and I know what you mean
Yes I do, yes I do, yes I do

Spain  (Spain)
Please, Mister Spain  (Spain)
Don’t you let nobody’s daughter feel your shame  (I love you, Mister Spain)
Your shame, your shame, Mister Spain  (I love you, Mister Spain, ooh ooh, ooh ooh)

(Spain, Spain, Spain)

I can feel your blackness and your manhood and your love
I can touch your whiteness and your oranges and your power
So let me hear your laughter, right away
You can turn around now, it’s okay

Mister Spain
Ooh, Mister Spain
Come put a star beside your name
Let’s laugh, Mister Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Laugh, Mister Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Whoa, laugh, Mister Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Laugh, Mister Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Laugh, oooh, Mister Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Uh, uh, whoa, whoa, whoa  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)

Català – Senyor Spain
Puc sentir la teva negror, la teva virilitat i el teu amor
Puc tocar la teva blancor, els teus taronges i el teu poder

Spain  (Spain)
Sí, Senyor Spain  (Spain)
Vine a posar una estrella al costat del teu nom
Sí que ho són, Senyor Spain

Puc parlar en la teva llengua, si escoltes ho sentiràs
Entec el teu plor, entenc la teva por
I sé que et sents sol  (sol)
Sí, ho sé  (sí, ho sé)
Ara sé el que t’estàs perdent  (perdent)
Noi, tu també ho saps

Senyor Spain
No, no facis això, Senyor Spain
No posis una altra agulla a la teva vena
Oh, Senyor Spain, siusplau

Puc sentir que plou sobre els teus secrets i els teus somnis
I entenc les teves raons i sé el que vols dir
Sí, ho sé, sí, ho sé, sí, ho sé

Spain  (Spain)
Siusplau, Senyor Spain  (Spain)
No deixis que ningú senti vergonya per tu  (t’estimo, Senyor Spain)
Vergonya per tu, vergonya per tu, Senyor Spain  (t’estimo, Senyor Spain, ooh ooh, ooh ooh)

(Spain, Spain, Spain)

Puc sentir la teva negror, la teva virilitat i el teu amor
Puc tocar la teva blancor, els teus taronges i el teu poder
Així que deixa’m escoltar el teu riure, immediatament
Pots donar-li la volta ara, no passa res

Senyor Spain
Ooh, Senyor Spain
Vine a posar una estrella al costat del teu nom
Anem a riure, Senyor Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Riure, Senyor Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Whoa, riure, Senyor Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Riure, Senyor Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Riure, riure, riure, riure, riure  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Riure, oooh, Senyor Spain  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
Uh, uh, whoa, whoa, whoa  (ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
