The lyrics tell the story of a young woman who is romantically involved with a man named José, but seduces the narrator with flattering words until he is love-stricken. After they kiss José arrives and the narrator flees, only to hear in the distance as the young woman uses on José the exact same enticing words she told the narrator, suggesting she lures every suitor she meets with the exact same "script".
