Tango de Roxanne lyrics

(Spoken...)

We have a dance!
In the brothels of Buenos Aires
Tells the story
Of a prostitute.
And a man... who falls in love...
With her.

First there is desire
Then... passion!
Then... suspicion!
Jealousy! Anger! Betrayal!
Where love is for the highest bidder,
There can be no trust!
Without trust,
There is no love!
Jealousy!
Yes, jealousy...
Will drive you... mad!

(Sung...)

Roxanne
You don't have to put on that red light
Walk the streets for money
You don't care if it's wrong or if it is right

Roxanne
You don't have to wear that dress tonight
Roxanne
You don't have to sell your body to the night

His eyes upon your face
His hand upon your hand
His lips caress your skin
It's more than I can stand

(Roxanne)
Why does my heart cry?
(Roxanne)
Feelings I can't fight
You're free to leave me, but just don't deceive me
And please believe me when I say I love you

(Roxanne)
Why does my heart cry?
(Roxanne)
Feelings I can't fight
You're free to leave me, but just don't deceive me
And please believe me when I say I love you

Why does my heart cry?
(Roxanne, you don't have to put on that red light)
Feelings I can't fight
(Roxanne, you don't have to wear that dress tonight)
Roxanne
You don't have to put on that red light
Roxanne
You don't have to wear that dress tonight
(Roxanne)
Why does my heart cry?
Roxanne
Feelings I can't fight
Roxanne

The Original Roxanne Clip - by The Police

A Very Tango beautiful fact: during recording, Sting accidentally sat down on the piano keyboard in the studio, resulting in the atonal piano chord and laughter preserved at the beginning of the track.
