"Dejame Vivir" by Rocío Dúrcal and Juan Gabriel, English translation of lyrics

"Leave Me Be", lit. "Let Me Live"
Style: Argument in song, kind of campy in an awesome way
Countries: Spain (Rocío Dúrcal) and Mexico (Juan Gabriel)

Listen:

This song is a musical argument between two former lovers. The woman doesn't want anything to do with him anymore. He does not want to take no for an answer and begs her to reconsider. The music video from 1985 has the two singers act out the lyrics of the song. It is cheesy, but so sincerely acted that it becomes great!

Watch the music video at YouTube here.
