                      It was quite easy to find a translation for the name of this song….

                                           Mentiros Benitos means  BEAUTIFUL LIES

 

                              But what the rest of the song is about is anybody’s guess!

                         I guess some poor guy got dumped by his girl — is that not

                     the story of life, regardless of the language used to tell the tale!

It does all make for good lyrics to songs though…....       

                     

                                                    See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
