Spanish

i like to dance. Sometimes, i will dance using English song,because its more R&B, more beat.

its quite weird (or unenjoyable) when you play the song without singing(actually,i just mumble,hehe).and today,i came across this song,i found the lyric of this song is quite special,its a mixture of english and spanish.

hips don't lie ---Shakira feat Wyclef Jean


Hips don’t lie shakira feat wyclef

Ladies up in here tonight
No fighting, no fighting
We got the refugees up in here
No fighting, no fighting

Shakira, Shakira

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man wants to speak Spanish
Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa
Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby when you talk like that
You make a woman go mad
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

I'm on tonight
You know my hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel it's right
All the attraction, the tension
Don't you see baby, this is perfection

Hey Girl, I can see your body moving
And it's driving me crazy
And I didn't have the slightest idea
Until I saw you dancing

And when you walk up on the dance floor
Nobody cannot ignore the way you move your body, girl
And everything so unexpected - the way you right and left it
So you can keep on shaking it


I'm on tonight
You know my hips don't lie
And I am starting to feel you boy
Come on lets go, real slow
Don't you see baby asi es perfecto



Oh boy, I can see your body moving
Half animal, half man
I don't, don't really know what I'm doing
But you seem to have a plan
My will and self restraint
Have come to fail now, fail now
See, I am doing what I can, but I can't so you know
That's a bit too hard to explain

Baila en la calle de noche
Baila en la calle de día

Baila en la calle de noche
Baila en la calle de día

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa
Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby when you talk like that
You know you got me hypnotized
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

Se?orita, feel the conga, let me see you move like you come from Colombia

Mira en Barranquilla se baila así, say it!
Mira en Barranquilla se baila así

Yeah
She's so sexy

every man's fantasy a refugee like me back with the Fugees from a 3rd world country
I go back like when 'pac carried crates for Humpty Humpty
I need a whole club dizzy
Why the CIA wanna watch us?
Colombians and Haitians
I ain't guilty, it's a musical transaction
No more do we snatch ropes
Refugees run the seas 'cause we own our own boats

I'm on tonight, my hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel you boy
Come on let's go, real slow
Baby, like this is perfecto

Oh, you know I am on tonight and my hips don't lie
And I am starting to feel it's right
The attraction, the tension
Baby, like this is perfection

No fighting
No fighting

don't forget the sexy caribbean girls



do u guys notice the words that highlighted with grey colour?
the translation of the words are like these....
"Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa"
What´s your name
What´s its name, pretty, my house, your house


"Baila en la calle de noche
Baila en la calle de día"
Dance(s) in the street at night
dance(s) in the street during the day


"Mira en Barranquilla se baila así"
Look, in Barranquilla, they dance like this



nyway, in this song ¿Cómo se llama? Bonita, mi casa, su casa
would translate as:

What's your name, pretty [girl], my house, your house

So here's the connotation:

Hey what's your name. You're pretty (you're a pretty girl). We can go to my house, your house, wherever.

You know? In the song it kind of has that other connotation. It may not necessarily say so, but it implies so. Reading between the lines!



or you can refer to this forum for additional meaning of the lyric

THE BEAUTIFUL COLOMBIAN CARIBBEAN CITIES


Colombia, is the northermost country of South America. It is a surprising combination of exotic islands, snow-peaked mountains, lush forests, wild jungles, scorching deserts and vibrant cities. It also has coasts on both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. Its most popular coast is on the Atlantic which on this side of the continent is called the Caribbean Sea.

Colombian population is a combination of several races. Precolumbian native Indians were the first inhabitants the country had. They lived in different areas of the territory until the arrival of the Spaniards. These invaded, conquered some territories and destroyed the Indigenous cultures. Along with their violence and destruction they also brought the Spanish language and the Catholic religion. As the indigenous were not easy to dominate they were exterminated and the conquerors had to bring slaves from Africa. They became the third party of Colombian multiracial population.

The Colombian Caribbean Coast has several main cities: Barranquilla, Cartagena, Santa Marta, Valledupar and Montería. Each one of them has its own features, celebrations, folklore, cuisine, customs, and traditions. Barranquilla, the Golden Gate of the country is an industrial city, famous for its Carnival and friendly people.

Cartagena, the Heroic City, is the favorite of honey mooners, because of its beautiful landmarks, tourist places, history and beaches.
The Caribbean Coast is a surprising combination of most attractive coastal area the country has. Surprinsingly enough there is a great combination and result: A great combination and variety of cultures, folklore, food, customs and celebrations.
