"Spanish Eyes" as written by and Dave Evans Adam Clayton....
Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Empty heart, beat tight as a drum set
Empty love, she'd shine like a song
Wey hey hey, baby hang on (to anything)

Our love shines like rain
In those Spanish eyes
Spanish eyes

Wey hey hey, here she comes
She comes in colors
You know she gonna turn the daylight on
'Cause I love the way you talk to me
And I love the way you walk on me
And I need you more
Oh, than you need me

Our love shines like rain
In those Spanish eyes
Spanish eyes

I'll cross the world for green and gold
But it's those Spanish eyes
That get me home, home again

Wey hey hey, baby hang on
Wey hey hey, you know that
The night is young
Dazzled by lights that shine in your eyes
I'm standing in the shadows
And wait for the night
Forever in fever, forever in heat
You pick me up to put me out on the street

Wey hey hey, baby hang on, hang on
Wey hey hey, baby hang on, hang on
'Cause I love the way you talk to me
And I love the way you're mean to me
And I need you

    General CommentMy least favorite original U2 song ever. It sounds like Bono working up a sweat trying to force some soul into a dead tune, and coming off utterly false.

    General Commentnot a huge fan of this song, but all irish people have spanish in them like 1/20th. Its where the brown eyes and dark hair come from so bonos wife must be the type of irish with some spanish in her.

    General Commentfloggin that's BS! It's just a myth. Irish, Welsh and Scottish people have the Basque gene, not Spanish. Brown eyes and hair is pretty common in Europe. You don't have to be Spanish to have those features.
    Ali is Irish
