Have you seen Panama
Where I first fell in love
It will forever be

An emerald necklace
Set between the seas

Beside a crystal stream
In the mountains of Chiriqui
I saw a girl astride a horse
She waved at me
I was fifteen

I was not a child
I was not yet a man
I was trying very hard
To understand
Indifferent to the dangers of
Living in a foreign land
Was I falling in love or
Under the spell Of Panama?

Went riding off alone
Much further than I should have gone
I wandered deep into the dark
Now which way gets me home

Then suddenly there she was
All covered with leaves and dust
I couldn't believe It but she followed me
Now both of us were lost

I was not a child
I was not yet a man
I was trying very hard
To understand
Indifferent to the dangers of
Living in a foreign land
Was I falling in love or
Under the spell Of Panama?

The clouds began to rumble
We found a dry piece of jungle
I don't remember If It rained
But I remember making love

So clearly I recall
The magic of Panama
And surely never will it let me go
Yo Soy Panameno

I was not a child
I was not yet a man
I was trying very hard
To understand
Indifferent to the dangers of
Living in a foreign land
Was I falling in love or
Under the spell Of Panama?
