Anybody fluent in Spanish? Song translation help
 
I have a big favor - I have a song I'm considering for an aerobics class and would love for someone fluent in Spanish to listen to it (I have a youtube link) and tell me if it is appropriate or not - I can't find the lyrics online to do it myself so I need a bilingual EAR to hear it...my spanish is about 3rd grade level and mostly reading only - they talk way too fast for me in the song to keep up....

Private Message me if you think you can help/or want to help....I'll give you all my carrots! (if I knew how)..LOL!

Wish I could help you out. I can usually only pick out about every 3rd word...if they are speaking slowly and annunciating very well LOL.

You could probably find the lyrics somewhere online..I can read a decent amount of general Spanish and cuss words..but I can't listen for my life, and writing never went too well, haha.

PM me and I will look later on today when I get home. I can tell you now that it's probably about love or sex though, LOL. I'll post here when I'm done.

Yep, me too..I've been studying spanish on my own off and on for about 3 years. I can READ it way better than speaking it - one of the curses of studying alone out of a book. This song is really fast and I can only get a handful of words out of it...

Don't want to post it here in the general forum b/c if it turns out to be XXX, I would be so embarrassed!!! Sexy/naughty with some innuendo is ok - kind of like all of Pit Bull's songs - all the girls like to dance to his stuff...but I don't want explicit talk about someone doing something else to someone - if you know what I mean...

No lyrics on it ANYWHERE in fact, I found lots of posts from people asking for the lyrics just as I am doing....there are a few songs with similar titles that people offer to send, but they aren't the right song...

I searched for 3 hours under the artist, the song, different takes of the song, chorus search, publisher, movie that it was in, you name it...I feel like I am a really good researcher and if I can't find it, it can't be found. At least that seems to be the case here..:cry:

I dated a guy years ago who played soccer on the Mexican league here...after several summers of soccer with nothing but spanish speakers, I learned a few cuss words, too....hahahaa! Now THAT was immersion spanish...Rosetta Stone would never get you that far that quick...LOL!:lol:

I'm a native speaker so I'm sure I can get it. :) it might also be a remake of an old song - its really popular for lesser known bands to try to get a start that way. I'm on mobile so sometimes viewing videos is difficult but I'm rather curious about the song now!

LOL! I love the beat and the music is great - so let me PM you.........

I was able to get in a couple of listens during lunch when I went home. It's really really fast so I can't catch all the words LOL! I didn't hear any cuss words so far but I plan to give it a more concentrated listen tonight. The general just of the song has sexual innuendo but nothing terribly vulgar. It's a "gimme all you got baby" type of song with direct references to kissing and implications of sex (he says stuff like give it all to me, don't hold back, etc)

Figured other people might be curious! I'll revisit this tonight though.

ok - I'll wait for you to get a chance to review it all (I hope it isn't too offensive!LOL!) I sure as heck appreciate it. I wanted to tell those guys 'mas despacio por favor! but they are in the video and can't hear me..

The ladies in the class love this type of music and so many songs are so worn out (They LOVE Pit bull but UGH - the songs are stuck in my head while I sleep at night!) that I really have to dig around to find some new stuff...this is the first one in my entire life that I can't find lyrics for! Of all the things.

I hear so many others talk about their non-spanish-speaking instructors and they say 'if she knew what was in this song, she wouldn't be playing it' - I don't want that to be me! LOL! There are some Xrated ones out there....:wink:
