Chiquitita dime la verdad

Spanish lyrics to ABBA’s song, Chiquitita.
Reminds me of the year my parents split, watching Grease two times in a row in a theatre. Seeing my mother become one of the strongest women I know. Experiencing the innocence of childhood drift away, putting away my dolls. Reading books while I was hidden in my closet. Finding my fathers old Playboy magazines and reading all the cartoons.

It still doesn’t sound like the right song unless the lyrics are in Spanish.
