Story

While touring in Europe with Stephanie Urbina Jones, we added a video shoot on our last day before returning to the US. After a long day of filming, a few of the folks who had been in the video invited us over to a bar that one of them owned. The rest is history (or at least, it's recounted in the song).

It only seemed right to have Stephanie sing harmony, since she was witness to it all; and Josh Hunt played drums.

Last Night in Barcelona (3:43)

--Patterson Barrett ©2017 (BMI) Criminal Tunes

 

My last night in Barcelona after a long stay

We were invited out to a little bar called Tekila spelled with a “K”

The day was long, the night was hot, but we went anyway

I could not speak the language so I grabbed a guitar and I started to play

 

And there was music and everybody sang and danced with each other

Singing words I did not understand

My head was swimming in a sea of liquid dreams

My last night in Barcelona

 

They offered me drink, and then they offered me one more

And before I knew what was happening, I’d had another four

The room began to spin a bit but in a pleasant way

I gathered up my courage, I stood up to sing and they all started to sway

 

And there was music and everybody sang and danced with each other

Singing words I did not understand

My head was swimming in a sea of liquid dreams

My last night in Barcelona

 

And they sang a song I knew so well

But I’d never heard the words before

 

*A la novia que yo tengo, tequila le digo yo

Pues cuando le doy un beso, borracho me siento yo

Y como quema, pero es tan Buena

Te pides otra,,casi sin respiración

 ¡Tequila!

 

And there was music and everybody sang and danced with each other

Singing words I did not understand

My head was swimming in a sea of liquid dreams

My last night in Barcelona

My last night in Barcelona

My last night in Barcelona

 

*(roughly)

I have a bride, Tequila I call her

Because when I kiss her, I feel drunk

And it burns, but it feels so good

You ask for another, almost breathless

Tequila!
