40 Y 20 by Jose Jose, a Beautiful Song I Heard On The Radio in the Car...

I was switching stations on my car radio. Trying to find something interesting to listen to while driving. The songs that came across my search either too loud or too uninteresting... until I came across this beautiful song.  It is so beautiful and beautifully sung.  I stayed on this station and listen to the remaining of the song.  I enjoyed it so much that I wondered what is the name of this song. So I quickly took out my Android phone and quickly asked, "Ok, Google," I continued after search bar came on, "What's the name of this song?" The search bar on my phone started listening to the song on the radio.  Within seconds, the name with a picture of the album popped up on my phone.  "40 Y 20" by Jose Jose  for 99 cents on Google Play.  Of course, I pushed the Google Play button to see more.  I was guided to a list of songs.  40 Y 20 was one of them. 

After I got home. I searched for the lyrics online.  Found it.  It is in Spanish, of course.  Here's what I found.  Enjoy.

Words in this song in Spanish:

Mentiras, son todas mentiras

Cosas que dice la gente

Decir que este amor es prohibido

Que tengo 40 y tu 20

Que yo soy otoo en tu vida

Y tu eres dulce primavera

No saben que guardo un verano

Que cuando te miro, te quema

Cuarenta y veinte, cuarenta y veinte

Es el amor lo que importa y

No lo que diga la gente

Cuarenta y veinte, cuarenta y veinte

Toma mi mano

Camina conmigo mirando de frente

No importa que ami no me entiendan

Y que por lo bajo comenten

Que existe una gran diferencia

Que tengo 40 y tu 20

Que tengo tantas vivencias

Y tu tienes tanta inocencia

No saben que nuestro secreto

Es tu juventud y mi experiencia

Cuarenta y veinte, cuarenta y veinte

Es el amor lo que importa y

No lo que diga la gente

Cuarenta y veinte, cuarenta y veinte

Toma mi mano

Camina conmigo mirando de frente

 

Words of this song in English (translated from the above online):

Lies, all lies
Things people say
To say that this love is forbidden
May I have your 40 and 20

I am autumn in your life
And you're sweet spring
Do not know that I keep a summer
That when I look at you burn

Forty-twenty, forty and twenty
Love is what matters and
Do not people say
Forty-twenty, forty and twenty
Take my hand
Walk with me looking straight

No matter ami not understand me
And under his comment
That there is a big difference
May I have your 40 and 20

I have many experiences that
And you're so innocent
They do not know our secret
Is your youth and my experience

Forty-twenty, forty and twenty
Love is what matters and
Do not people say
Forty-twenty, forty and twenty
Take my hand
Walk with me looking straight
