Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Interesting Facts ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Quiero saber quién fue
Quiero saber por qué sucedió
Oh, oh, dime Marilyn
Dime quién, quién te mató
Eras tan bella una hermosa mujer
Quiero saber quién fue
Dime si fue el presidente
Dime si fue algún agente

Quién mató a Marilyn
La prensa fue o la radio tal vez
Quién mató a Marilyn
La televisión o el ratón Mickey
Quién mató a Marilyn
Dime, dime, dime quién fue

Dicen que fue un comunista
Dicen que fue un sandinista
Dicen que fue un extremista
O tal vez un alpinista
Dicen que fue tu doctor
Dicen que fue tu amigo íntimo
Dicen que fui yo, oh no
Dime quién, quién te mató

Quién mató a Marilyn
La prensa fue o la radio tal vez
Quién mató a Marilyn
La televisión o el ratón Mickey
Quién mató a Marilyn
Dime, dime, dime quién fue

Quién mató a Marilyn
La prensa fue o la radio tal vez
Quién mató a Marilyn
La televisión o el ratón Mickey
Quién mató a Marilyn
Dime, dime, dime quién fue

Busco en los diarios la explicación
Pero la prensa me deja peor
Oh, dime Marilyn
Dime quién, quién te mató
En la tele sonriéndome estás
Mis nervios están por estallar
Dime si fue Rodrigo Beltrán
O tal vez un Sacsayhuamán

Quién mató a Marilyn
La prensa fue o la radio tal vez
Quién mató a Marilyn
La televisión o el ratón Mickey
Quién mató a Marilyn
Dime, dime, dime quién fue
Dime, dime, dime quién fue
Oh Marilyn, Marilyn
Oh Marilyn, Marilyn




Oh Marilyn, Marilyn
Oh Marilyn, Marilyn
