Él was the Spanish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1982 in Harrogate performed by Lucia. The song is about her being torn between two men, while one tends to be loving and caring, and one tends to be a bit of an idiot, going around all the girls every night. However, she is more in love with the latter and invites him to her house, but afterwards she has to study (as she is a college student) and then makes up her mind.

It was performed 12th on the night following Belgium and preceding Denmark. At the close of voting, it finished in 10th place with 52 points.

It was a tango song, and it caused a bit of concern as many related the tango-style music to Argentina, and the reason for this was the Falklands War at the time, and the Contest that year was held in the United Kingdom.

Lyrics

Ven, tengo libre de ocho a diez
Nos podemos divertir y tomarnos una copa
Él es igual que un perro fiel
Pero te prefiero a ti
Aunque digan que estoy loca

Él ejerce de hombre serio
Tú te lo tomas a risa
Él pretende ser mi dueño
Tú me llamas y me olvidas
Pero te prefiero a ti

Él me perdona porque es un pedazo de buen pan
Y me trata con paciencia
Sé que no debo ser cruel
Que le debo confesar que él a mí, no me interesa

Él ejerce de hombre serio
Tú te lo tomas a risa
Él pretende ser mi dueño
Tú me llamas y me olvidas
Pero te prefiero a ti

Él dice que ya cambiaré
Que le tengo que buscar cuando siente la cabeza
Ven, tengo libre de ocho a diez
Luego tengo que estudiar
Y pensar quién me interesa

Él ejerce de hombre serio
Tú te lo tomas a risa
Él pretende ser mi dueño
Tú me llamas y me olvidas
Pero te prefiero a ti

Él dice que ya cambiaré
Que le tengo que buscar cuando siente la cabeza
Ven, tengo libre de ocho a diez
Luego tengo que estudiar
Y pensar quién me interesa

Él ejerce de hombre serio
Tú te lo tomas a risa
Él pretende ser mi dueño
Tú me llamas y me olvidas
Pero te prefiero a ti

Come, I'm free from eight to ten
We can have fun and have a drink
He's like a faithful dog
But I prefer you
Though people say I'm crazy

He acts like a serious man
You're laughing about it
He intends to be my owner
You phone me and forget me
But I prefer you

He forgives me because he's a scrap of good bread
And he treats me with patience
I know that I shouldn't be cruel
That I should tell him I'm not interested in him

He acts like a serious man
You're laughing about it
He intends to be my owner
You phone me and forget me
But I prefer you

He says that I will change
That I have to find him when I settle down
Come, I'm free from eight to ten
Then I have to study
And think about whom I'm interested in

He acts like a serious man
You're laughing about it
He intends to be my owner
You phone me and forget me
But I prefer you

He says that I will change
That I have to find him when I settle down
Come, I'm free from eight to ten
Then I have to study
And think about whom I'm interested in

He acts like a serious man
You're laughing about it
He intends to be my owner
You phone me and forget me
But I prefer you
