Now I understand when they say that the times

Of God they are perfect

Even though I had so many disappointments

I appreciate it

 

And I even feel that I should ask

Forgiveness to my destiny

I cursed it so many times but now

Everything makes sense

 

Rightly, rightly so

My soul was always full of doubts

No wonder I never felt anything

With no one

 

Rightly, rightly so

My kisses lacked something

Now I know why my heart

Never agreed

 

It had a surprise

That brings me joy today

And my surprise was you

My love

 

This is Calibre 50 chiquitita

 

It has been so lovely to meet you

Pleasure of my life

I promise you that we’ll do whatever you want in bed

Whatever you say

 

And I even feel that I should ask

Forgiveness to my destiny

I cursed it so many times but now

Everything makes sense

 

Rightly, rightly so

My soul was always full of doubts

No wonder I never felt anything

With no one

 

Rightly, rightly so

My kisses lacked something

Now I know why my heart

Never agreed

 

It had a surprise

That brings me joy today

And my surprise was you

My love

 

My surprise was you

My love
