Abba - Chiquitita
Tekst en muziek: Benny Andersson en Björn Ulvaeus
(1979)






Chiquitita, tell me what’s wrong
You’re enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow



How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you’re oh, so sad, so quiet



Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I’m a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I’m the one you must rely on



You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you’ve broken a feather
I hope, we can patch it up together



Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they’re leaving
You’ll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving



Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more, like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more, like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita



So the walls came tumbling down
And your love’s a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle



Chiquitita, tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
I see that you’re oh, so sad, so quiet



Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they’re leaving
You’ll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving



Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more, like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more, like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita



Try once more, like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
