Verse 1
Perdido, I look for my heart it's perdido
I lost it way down in Torido
While chancing a dance fiesta
Bolero, he glanced as I danced the Bolero
He said taking off his sombrero: "Let's meet for a sweet fietsa"
Verse 2
High was the sun when we first came close
Low was the moon when we said adios
Verse 3
Perdido, since then has my heart been perdido
I know I must go to Torido, that yearning to lose perdido
Verse 4
I look for my heart it's perdido
I lost it way down in Torido
He glanced as I danced the Bolero
He smiled as he tipped his sombrero
Verse 5
High was the moon when we first came close
Low was the moon when we said adios
Verse 6
Since then has my heart been perdido
I must go to Torido, that yearning telude
Verse 7
Perdido oeoeoeoe Perdido oeoeoeoe Perdido
The day the fiesta started
Verse 8
Perdido oeoeoeoe Perdido oeoeoeoe Perdido
That's when my heart departed
Verse 9
It's perdido!
