Chiquitita Lyrics - Abba

Review The Song (9)



Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
You're enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving

Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

So the walls came tumbling down
And your love's a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
I see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

Background chorus correction | Reviewer: joshdvd | 3/15/14

I am almost sure that the background chorus is:

"how it hurts to see you cry
and how it hurts to see you sad"...

"even though you cry
the sun is shining in the sky, so
let me hear you sing some more
the way you used to do before"...

(by Javier | 12/13/07)

"You and I, we know
how all the heartaches come and go
and you'll be dancing once again
and all the pain you take will end"...

"even though we cry the sun is shining in the sky, so
let me hear you sing some more
the way you used to do before"

Another backing vocal lyric suggestion | Reviewer: Grant Howard | 2/28/14

If you look at one of the many videos of the song (I think it's the UNICEF version), Bjorn can be clearly be seen to mime the words:
"Hey little girl, the sun is shining in the sky, so let me hear you sing once more the way you used to do before."
Try that one the next time you sing along!

It dances my memory "Chiquitita" | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/3/11

The song dances a fresh memory in me. It reminds me of Dec 6 2010 when my Lov Laurah Murai visited me at home. At bed time, she sat looking at me with tears rolling down her cheeks. She didn't answer when I asked why. I cried too. On March 21 2011. She called me only to say that she had no feeling of love for me and that I should forget her. She called me a week ago and said that she has changed her minds to love me again, that we try once more to sing a new song. Thanks Abba for this one Chiquitita. Fredrick Nato

You and I, we know how all the heartaches come and go and you'll be dancing once again and all the pain you take will end"

is

You and I, we know how all the heartaches; you'll know that you'll be dancing once again and all the pain you take will end

and

so let me hear you sing a song the way you used to before
is

so let me hear you sing SOME MORE the way you used to before

Background chorus correction | Reviewer: Abraham | 7/14/09

The background chorus (the second one), must be "...so let me hear you sing a song the way you used to DO before". By the way, thanks for the background chorus lyrics!! I've been looking for them a long time ago!!

Background Lyrics | Reviewer: mrw650 | 3/31/09

Can someone help me with the first lost lyrics, it comes after "now I've seen you've broken a feather" it sounds like "hurts to see you cry and hide, it hurts to see you sad" but I'm not sure, thanks...

ABBA'S Chiquitita's almost unknown words | Reviewer: Javier | 12/13/07

I've been looking for the words beloging to the background chorus for they aren't that easy to hear... but after years and years of listening to this classic pop tune (now with an ear wide open), I finally got them. Here they are:

"You and I, we know how all the heartaches come and go and you'll be dancing once again and all the pain you take will end"

...and then...

"You and I, we cry; the sun is shining in the sky, so let me hear you sing a song the way you used to before"

Please, anyone correct me if I'm mistaken.

Thanks,

Alex.-

Error. | Reviewer: Siddhartha mandal | 6/3/07

There's a trivial error in the Chiquitita lyrics.
In the final line of the 1st and 2nd stanza in place of "I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet" it should be
"I can see that you're all so sad, so quiet".I want to mean in place of "oh so sad" it would be "all so sad".
Thankyou.
