Lyrics
Perdido
I look for my heart, it’s perdido
I lost it way down in Torido
While chancing a dance fiesta

Ooh, bolero
He glanced as I danced the bolero
He said taking off his sombrero:
“Let’s meet for a sweet siesta”

High was the sun when we first came close
Low was the moon when we said: “Adios baby”

Perdido
Since then has my heart been perdido
I know I must go to Torido
That yearning to lose, perdido

Ooh, perdido
I look for my heart, it’s perdido
I lost it way down in Torido
While chancing a dance fiesta

Yeah, bolero
You should see me happy dance the bolero
He said taking off his sombrero:
“Let’s meet for a sweet siesta”

High was the sun when we first came close
Low was the moon when we said: “Adios mamma”

Perdido
Since then has my heart been perdido
I know I must go to Torido
That yearning to lose, perdido

Ooh, perdido, perdido
Perdido, perdido
Perdido, perdido, ooh, oh, ooh

Català – Perdut
Perdut
Busco el meu cor, és perdut
El vaig perdre camí avall a Torido
Mentre m’arriscava en un ball de festa

Oh, bolero
Em va fer una ullada mentre jo ballava el bolero
Va dir llevant-se el barret:
“Reunim-nos per a una dolça migdiada”

Alt estava el sol el primer cop que ens vam apropar
Baixa estava la lluna quan ens va dir: “Adéu noi”

Perdut
Des d’aleshores el meu cor ha estat perdut
Sé que he d’anar a Torido
Aquest desig de perdre, perdut

Oh, perdut
Busco el meu cor, és perdut
El vaig perdre camí avall a Torido
Mentre m’arriscava en un ball de festa

Sí, bolero
M’hauries de veure feliç ballar el bolero
Va dir llevant-se el barret:
“Reunim-nos per a una dolça migdiada”

Alt estava el sol el primer cop que ens vam apropar
Baixa estava la lluna quan ens va dir: “Adéu mama”

Perdut
Des d’aleshores el meu cor ha estat perdut
Sé que he d’anar a Torido
Aquest desig de perdre, perdut

Oh, perdut, perdut
Perdut, perdut
Perdut, perdut, oh, oh, oh
