La Ciudad ardio Alejandra Guzmán Translation Meaning and Lyrics
Guzmán is a big girl and she's having a fun night out with a guy. Song has some nice refrains.
Guzmán is the main character and she's hanging out in Madrid. Along comes a dude and invites her to come with him. They go out for a romantic dinner. While she's gone to the bathroom he disappears.
There is then a section that I'm not so clear about: It maybe voiced as from the dude - if she wants to see him again she should dress like a whore and meet him at midnight.
Guzmán is very young in this performance for a live studio audience.
She's wearing some funky clothes and has come equally funky dance-moves. She is confidently strutting her stuff on stage, and vocally giving it some.

La otra noche vigilaba la luna
The other night I was watching the moon
En la puerta de alcala
At the Alcala gate
Cuando un coche de color
When a colored car
Aceituna vino hacia mi
Olive came to me
Y antes de que frenara
And before it stopped
Ya estaban los stones
The stones were there.
Disparando rock, mmm
Disparando rock, mmm
Hey pequeña que has tan sola di
Hey little girl you're so alone he said
Sin nadie que te proteja
With no one to protect you
Si me dejas puedo ser para tí
If you let me I can be for you
Como el sombrero es para la cabeza
As the hat is for the head
Nunca dije si, pero le seguí
I never said yes, but I followed him.
Y la ciudad ardio, y la ciudad ardio
And the city is burning, and the city is burning
Con sentarme a su vela
With sitting by his candle
Y la ciudad ardio lo mismo que ardi yo
And the city burned as I burned
Como alcohol en las venas
Like alcohol in the veins
Luz de velas, vino, musica griega
Candle light, wine, Greek music
Y me quede sin cordura
And I ran out of prudence
Caradura que despues de la cena
Cheeky that after dinner
Me roba a medias la cartera y la vida
He half-steals my wallet and life
Yo fui al tocador, y el desaparecio
I went to the powder room, and he disappeared.
Si quieres más dinero
If you want more money
Vistete de cuero negro
Dress in black leather
Y buscame a media noche
And look for me at midnight
Te espero de seda oscura
I wait for you dark silk
Y labios al rojo vivo
And red-hot lips
Ven y robame lo que me queda
Come and steal what's left
