Elvis sang Marguerita in his 1963 movie Fun In Acapulco. The song was written by Don Robertson and recorded by Elvis on January 22, 1963, at Radio Recorders.



Who makes my heart beat like thunder?
Who makes my temperature rise?
Who makes me tremble with wonderful rapture
With one burning glance from her eyes


Once I was free as a gypsy
A creature too wild to tame
Then suddenly I saw Marguerita
And I was caught like a moth in the flame

Marguerita... is her name


Her lips have made me her prisoner
A slave to her every command
She captivates me and intoxicates me
With one little touch of her hand


Sweet... Marguerita... sweet, sweet Marguerita...
