"La Isla Bonita" (the beautiful island) is a lovely song by Madonna with a strong Latino influence. It's got more sharps and flats in it than regular notes though - i found it very challenging to work out the notes for, and then to play after!

Last night

C# ^D#   G#  ^D#  ^E-^D#-^E 
I  dreamt   of   San   Pedro  ~

^E     ^E   ^G#   ^G#-E   ^E
Just   like   I'd   never   gone,

^G# ^F#  ^D# ^D#
I   knew  the  song...

 

^C# ^C#   G#
A     young girl

^C#  ^D#  ^D#  ^F#  ^E-^D#-^E
With  eyes  like   the     desert  ~

^E  ^E    ^E     ^G#   ^G#-^E-^E
It   all  seems   like   yesterday,

^G#   ^F#   ^D#-^D#
Not      far       away...

 

^E-^E-^E ^E  ^E-^D# ^D#
Tropical    the   island breeze

^F# ^F# ^F#-^F# ^F#   ^E   ^E
All      of     nature    wild and free

^D# ^D#  ^D#  ^D# ^D# ^C# ^C#
This    is    where   I     long    to     be

^C#  ^C#-^C#   ^C#-^D#-^E-^D#-^E
La            isla         bonita   ~    ~

 

^E      ^E      ^E  ^E-^D#  ^D#
And when the  samba played

^F# ^F# ^F#    ^F# ^E  ^E
The sun would set   so high

^E         ^D#   ^D# ^D#
Ring through my  ears

^D#  ^D#  ^C#  ^C#
And  sting my   eyes

^C#   ^F#-^E  B-B-^C#
Your Spanish  lullaby...
