Soundtrack Q & A
Q: Does any have or know where I can get the lyrics to "Puerto Rico" the last song on the soundtrack. Thanks. (from Tj in Muskegon, MI)
A: Puerto Rico lyrics:
Each night I pray
there would soon come a day
That I'd find my way back
to your shore
Somehow I knew,
if I reach you
It's there that my heart will stay
Forever more...

High on the dream
I'm still believing
Say you'll be mine

My PUERTO RICO

Hold me tonight, under the stars
PUERTO RICO
Where I belong, there in your arms
PUERTO RICO

(la la la le)
oh oh oh oh
a lalalaa....
(como es posible que lleve
en mi cuerpo el latido
de su corazon
siento mi alma que grita, que vuela
y quiero luchar
quiero volver)

How can it be
that your heart beats in me?
I keep hearing your song in my mind

How did I know
it was PUERTO RICO that's been caling me
all of the time?

I close my eyes, I am in paradise
Say you'll be there

My PUERTO RICO

Hold me tonight, under the stars
PUERTO RICO
Where I belong, there in your arms
PUERTO RICO

lalalale
lalalalaaaa
PUERTO RICO

Every beat, I feel the heat
PUERTO RICO

Every step, closer I get

I'm coming home to you

Traduccion
Todos los dias rezo
que llegue pronto el dia
que logre volver a tu orilla

De alguna forma supe que si te alcanzaba
alli se iba a quedar mi corazón
Para siempre

Ese sueño me motiva
Yo sigo creyendo en el
Di que seras mio
Mi PUERTO RICO

Como es posible que tu corazon palpite en mi
Sigo oyendo tu cancion en mi mente

Como podia saber
Que era PUERTO RICO que me llamaba
Todo el tiempo
Cierro mis ojos, estoy en el paraiso
Di que estaras ahi
My PUERTO RICO

Abrazame esta noche bajo las estrellas
PUERTO RICO
Donde pertenezco alli en tus brazos
PUERTO RICO

Con cada golpe siento el calor
Con cada paso mas me acerco
Volvere a ti mi hogar

Q: What is the name of the salsa song that Rico and Luna dance to during their rehearsals for the dance contest? I love that song but it is not listed in the original soundtrack. Thanks! (from Danfert in North Carolina)
A: "Under My Skin" Robby Rosa (thanks to nicolette, whereveradd more info
A: It's not "Under My Skin." That was danced by Rico and Lola in the garage. The song Rico and Luna danced to during their first practice when she swiped him from Vicky is "Canto Limon" by La Dimencion. The other one that they practiced to when Rico and Luna had it out, I don't know the name. I know it was instrumental. No words. (thanks to Jax, Caadd more info

Q: Who sings "Puerto Rico"? (from Kashelee in Jerusalem, Palestine)
A: Hi. I have been searching for this song ever since I was 12 years old (some 13 years ago.) Tonight, I just randomly remembered it and decided to give it one last shot! I finally found it!

Q: What are the lyrics to "Margarita"? (from Elaine in Los Angeles)
A: 
MARGARITA
IN MY DREAM WE ARE TOGETHER
AND OUR LOVE GOES ON FOREVER
WHEN I'M WITH YOU,I'M NO WELL
MARGARITA
I WILL SEARCH UNTILL I FIND YOU
AND THE ROSE WILL REMIND ME
AND I WILL WAKE INSIDE THE DREAM
THE SUN IN HER HAIR
THE TROPICAL AIR
THE SMELL OF THE SEA
THE GIRL NEXT TO ME
SHE'S GOT THE TOUCH
THAT I NEED OH SO MUCH
MY MUCHACHITA
IT'S MORE THAN HER EYES
MORE THAN HER VOICE
MORE THAN SMILE
THAT LEAVES YOU NO CHOISE
STRAIGHT FROM THE PAGE OF LOVE
SHE WAS BORN
MARGARITA
AND IF I COULD GET BACK TO THAT DREAM
I KNOW SHE SHE WILL BE THERE
WAITING FOR ME
MARGARITA
I WILL SEARCH UNTIL I FIND YOU
AND THE ROSE WILL REMIND YOU
I WILL WAKE INSIDE THE DREAM
MARGARITA

Q: What are the lyrics for the song "Your Love" from Laura Branigan? (from petje in neth.)
A: 
Sometimes when I'm standing all alone
 I think of things that I have done
 And start to wonder if there's one thing
 That means more than others I have known
 And suddenly it seems to me
 Without your love where would I be
 
Your love
 Has kept me going through good and bad times
 It's kept me growing
 Your love
 Has kept on burning through sweet and sad times
 I'll keep returning to the magic of your love
 
Through the years my dreams may come and go
 This fortune is a funny thing
 And no one knows what time me bring
 And through the highs and lows I know
 Yes there's one thing I know for sure
 The one thing I've been living for
 
Your love
 Has kept me going through good and bad times
 It keeps me growing
 Your love
 It keeps on burning through sweet and sad times
 I'll keep returning to the magic of your love
 
[Instrumental]
 
Your love
 Has kept me going through good and bad times
 It's kept me growing
 Your love
 It keeps on burning through sweet and sad times 
I'll keep returning to the magic of your love
 It keeps on burning through sweet and sad times 

Your love
 Has kept me going through good and bad times
 I'll keep returning to the magic of your love 

Oh I'll keep returning to your love
