The label shows the name Pápay Faraghó László
And a Discogs search shows that he wrote a song Nem Tudják Azt, Csak Mi Ketten which translates as Nobody Knows It But We Two
But who wrote the English lyrics is a mystery.

Good research, but I don't think it's the same song.
"Nem tudják azt csak mi ketten" was written by PÁPAY LAJOS (1876-1939)
And that's not the same person as https://www.discogs.com/artist/1317867-P%C3%A1pay-Faragh%C3%B3-L%C3%A1szl%C3%B3?…
Esa canción es de Los Bravos
.... in a few moments I will tell you its title and the album in which it was published...
The title is Baby, Baby

I haven't done my research at SGAE or ISWC yet... but I suspect that the credits of that original in English (by Los Bravos) are not correct.
You bring the famous Mapel (Augusto Algueró Algueró)... but this artist is not mentioned as an author on the release... and that would be an unforgivable oblivion.
However, the British musician Ivor Raymonde ... who appears in the credits on the release... is absent in the result obtained by you.
Something is not right in the results shown by SGAE (see Attachment)

Everything that follows is hypothetical but is based on previous knowledge and the data supplied by the release. Point 4 is not hypothetical.
1. We have a musical work (called Vive) in Spanish whose author is Manolo Díaz. Mapel is an arranger (for the presentation of the work in SGAE).
2. That song is offered to Los Bravos.
3. Ivor Raymonde writes the English lyrics for that piece.
4. The song is recorded (in English) by Los Bravos with the title Baby, Baby (Vive), with the next credits: Ivor Raymonde, Manolo Díaz.

The way this original has been left in SHS does not convince me.
The original is not Vive .... the real original is Baby, Baby (a song written in English).
We must start from the piece sung by Los Bravos in English. That's the true original.
In this case, SGAE does not work. It doesn't give really useful information...
Our only source must be the release itself.
I think "Vive" is written in Spanish. (See Atachments)
