“Me Gusta Mucho Miraflores”

 

(“I love Miraflores”)

 

Me gusta mucho Miraflores

That most peaceful place in the sun

The welcome of Spain

The absence of strain

The heat, paltry rain, and the fun

 

Me gusta mucho Miraflores

I’m thinking of bright Jardin A

So perfect a place

You’ll easily embrace

The leisurely pace of the day!

 

Me gusta mucho Miraflores

This gem takes you right to its heart

To pamper the clan

Or top-up that tan

Now there’s a good plan for a start

 

Me gusta mucho Miraflores

What folks you are likely to meet

New friendships made fast

And old ones that last

All stars from a cast quite elite

 

Me gusta mucho Miraflores

And the ‘Five O’Clock Club’ at the bar

Where the vino is grand

And the measures expand

By the hand of our own Javiar

 

Me gusta mucho Miraflores

For delight it outshines the rest

To give it a score

I’d say ‘lo mejor!

In Spanish, that’s simply the best!
