Mark, I've seen this song [or just the title] printed hundreds of times, and I don't recall ever seeing a tilde over the "n."

I'm not positive the record was wrong [I'm certainly not an expert on Spanish dialects], but I myself have heard a lot of records of native English speakers singing in French, Spanish, German, Italian, etc., and butchering the pronunciation of some of the words.
