  • Who's that girl, who's that girl

    When you see her, say a prayer and kiss your heart goodbye
    She's trouble, in a word get closer to the fire
    Run faster, her laughter burns you up inside
    You're spinning round and round
    You can't get up, you try but you can'

    Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
    Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
    Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
    Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl

    You try to avoid her, fate is in your hands
    She's smiling, an invitation to the dance
    Her heart is on the street, tu corazon es suyo
    Now you're falling at her feet
    You try to get away but you can't

    Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
    Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
    Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
    Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl

    Light up my life, so blind I can't see
    Light up my life, no one can help me now

    Run faster, her laughter burns you up inside
    He's spinning round and round
    You can't get up, you try but you can't

    Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
    Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
    Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
    Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl

    Light up my life, so blind I can't see
    Light up my life, no one can help me now

    Who's that girl
    Now, who's that girl
    Now, who's that girl
    Now, who's that girl

    Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
    Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl
    Quien es esa nina, who's that girl
    Senorita, mas fina, who's that girl Writer/s: Madonna Ciccone, Patrick Leonard

  • Dougee from San Bernardino, Ca"Quien es esta nina?" (with the appropriate diacritics, of course) actually means "Who's this girl?" In later releases of the song she can be heard saying the correct "esa" (minus the t.)
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnGood song but the movie was icky.
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandBoy George had a version (though I don't know if his was the original or not...Probably not.)
  • Daniel from Rio De Janeiro, Brazilthat's not Boy George, that's the Eurythmics!
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandUntli I read the lyrics I thought this was a cover of the Boy George song "Who's That Girl" (..."Runing around with you?") man am I dumb?!
  • Lemont from Indianapolis, InThis song is the best song I've ever heard by Madonna to date.
