Spanish Sensation

Spanish Sensation

Not many people in the United States know that I am an international superstar in Spain. They love me. I actually go by the name “Marcos” over there. Sort of like “Elvis” did here. Since you probably haven’t heard it unless you have been to Spain, I want to share the lyrics from my new hit single, appropriately title “Spain.”

Spain

I won't swim to Spain
That would be insane
Nor will I take a train
Even if it has a drain

I might consider a ship
But it's a really long trip
Probably better to fly
And stay nice and dry

Spain, Spain, Spain
You're calling to my brain
Madrid, Madrid, Madrid
I see what you did
España, España, España
Voy a llegar mañana

If you would come along too
I know just what we'd do
We'd head out to the plains
To see where it mainly rains

Then play flamenco guitar
On the roof of the car
We'll eat some spanish rice
Wouldn't that be nice?

Unless you bit something hard and your tooth came loose
There's no tooth fairy in Spain, sí, that's the truth
Just a tooth mouse named Ratoncito Perez
But you might get some euros if you do what he says

Spain, Spain, Spain
You're calling to my brain
Madrid, Madrid, Madrid
I see what you did
España, España, España
Voy a llegar mañana

Music and words by Mark Starlin
International Rights Secured in 2014 though not really necessary since the song is amazingly popular in Spain but not anywhere else. And it is crazy expensive to hire a lawyer in Madrid to enforce copyright. Which is why you can get t-shirts with the song's lyrics on them throughout Spain, although they lose a little flavor in translation. So instead of suing people who use the lyrics on t-shirts, I ask them to make me a spanish omlete (tortilla española) instead as payment. It has worked out good. Although I am getting a little tired of eggs. I'll probably switch to paella soon for some variety.
