So I got robbed in Bueno Aires
(Entre Cochabamba y San Juan)
And made me feel so sad, I had to drink champagne
But if I had fallen in love in Montevideo
(Una chica uruguaya)
I would have told you straight away
That probably wouldn't have been so smart

It's my need to be with you, my love, in order to love you
We got to be together so I can make you love me
In this dream I've been having I'm taking you by the hand
And we're skipping down the street where I live
Just skipping down the street where I live

I did get robbed in Bueno Aires
But it wasn't really all that dramatic
I never had the time to go to Montevideo
(El otro lado del rio)
So I got a box full of love and I'm going to open it when I come home

It's my need to be with you, my love, in order to love you
We got to be together so I can make you love me
In this dream I've been having I'm taking you by the hand
And we're skipping down the street where I live
Just skipping down the street where I live

It's the need to be with me, my love, in order to love me
We got to be together so we can love each other
In the dreams you're having I'm taking you by the hand
And we're skipping down the street where we live

    General Commenti think these lyrics are a bit off. here's my attempt:

    so i got robbed in buenos aires
    (entre cochabamba y san juan)
    and it made me feel so sad i had to drink champagne
    but if i'd fallen in love in montevideo
    (una chica uruguaya)
    i would have told you straight away
    that probably wouldn't have been so smart

    cause i need to be with you my love in order to love you
    and we've got to be together so i can make you love me
    in this dream i've been having i'm taking you by the hand
    and we're skipping down the street where i live
    just skipping down the street where i live

    i did get robbed in buenos aires
    [not sure, can't quite decipher the spanish, sorry]
    but it wasn't really all that dramatic
    i never had time to go to montevideo
    (el otro lado del rio)
    so i got a box of love and i'm gonna open it when i come home

    cause i need to be with you my love in order to love you
    and we've got to be together so i can make you love me
    oh, in this dream i've been having i'm taking you by the hand
    and i'm skipping down the street where i live
    just skipping down the street where i live

    cause you need to be with me my love in order to love me
    and we've got to be together so we can love each other
    oh, in the dreams you're having i'm taking you by the hand
    and we're skipping down the street where we live
