"La Isla Bonita" (English: The Beautiful Island) is a song by American singer-songwriter Madonna. It was released as the fifth and final single from her third studio album, True Blue, on February 25, 1987 by Sire Records. "La Isla Bonita" is noted for being the first Madonna song to have a Spanish influence in it with arrangements of Cuban drums and Spanish guitar, maracas, harmonicas and a mix of synthesized and real drumming. The lyrics of the song tell about a beautiful island and was a tribute to the beauty of the Latin people, according to Madonna. The song is among one of the most performed live songs by Madonna, appearing in five of her world tours including 2008's Sticky & Sweet Tour.

La Isla Bonita - Madonna

[Spoken:]

Como puede ser verdad
[or Como puede ese olvidar]
How could it be true?

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
Just like I d never gone, I knew the song
A young girl with eyes like the desert
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

[Chorus:]

Tropical the island breeze
All of nature wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita
And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby

The beautiful island

I fell in love with San Pedro
Warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me
Te dijo te amo
I prayed that the days would last
They went so fast

He told you, "I love you"

[chorus]

I want to be where the sun warms the sky
When it s time for siesta you can watch them go by
Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
Where a girl loves a boy, and a boy loves a girl

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

[chorus twice]

La la la la la la la
Te dijo te amo
La la la la la la la
El dijo que te ama

He told you, "I love you"

He said he loves you
