"Una Rosa Es Una Rosa" as written by and Jose Maria Cano....
Es por culpa' de una hembra
Que me estoy volviendo loco
No puedo vivir sin ella
Pero con ella tampoco

Y si de este mal de amores
Yo me fuera pa' la tumba
A mi no me mandéis flores
Que como dice esta rumba

Quise cortar la flor
Mas tierna del rosal
Pensando que de amor
No me podría pinchar
Y mientras me pinchaba
Me enseñó una cosa
Que una rosa es una rosa es una rosa

Y cuando abrí la mano
Y la deje caer
Rompieron a sangrar
Las llagas en mi piel
Y con sus pétalos
Me la curo mimosa
Que una rosa es una rosa es una rosa

Pero cuanto mas me cura
Al ratito mas me escuece
Porque amar es el empiece
De la palabra amargura

Una mentira y un credo
Por cada espina del tallo
Que injertándose en los dedos
Una rosa es un rosario

Quise cortar la flor
Mas tierna del rosal
Pensando que de amor
No me podría pinchar
Y mientras me pinchaba
Me enseñó una cosa
Que una rosa es una rosa es una rosa

Cuando abrí la mano
Y la deje caer
Rompieron a sangrar
Las llagas en mi piel
Y con sus pétalos
Me la curo mimosa
Que una rosa es una rosa es una rosa

    My OpinionThis article includes multiple song lyrics, but my post is about the first one "A Rose is a Rose" which is another favorite Mecano song. I particularly love the play of words like "amar" (to love) is the beginning of "amargura" (bitterness). Another word play is "rosa" (rose) is the beginning of "rosario" (rosary). In the roman catholic faith, praying the rosary is one way of erasing your sins and be closer to heaven. The word "rosa" is also a popular female name in Spanish. The layers of meaning just go on and on... classic Mecano!

    General CommentHello, I think this is also related to Sacred Emily poem by Gertrude Stein..."Rose is a rose is a rose". I have read that the poem was dedicated to Sir Francis Rose, a painter...but I am not sure about Mecano´s use of the line. People thought that the poem was related to how things are what they seem to be.

    Also I would like to say that Ana Torroja is the granddaughter of Eduardo Torroja, super Spanish Engineer, look for his works. Both were brilliant in their respective fields.
