"Quizás, quizás, quizás" (also sometimes known simply as "Quizás"), is a popular song by Cuban songwriter Osvaldo Farrés.[1] Farrés wrote the music and original Spanish lyrics for the song which became a hit for Bobby Capó in 1947. Farrés also received much help and inspiration for his lyrics from Cuban First Lady, Mary Tarrero-Serrano.[citation needed]

English version[edit]

The English lyrics "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" were written by Joe Davis[2] and are not a translation of the Spanish lyrics. The English version was first recorded by Desi Arnaz in 1948 (RCA).[3]
