Despacito Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee Translation Meaning and Lyrics

Review

So Luis is pretty hot on this girl.  He's been checking her out, and he must 'dance' with her today.  What sort of 'dancing' is left up to your imagination.

He's asking for clues on what to do, and he knows he's getting there, he's getting hot under the collar, and he's getting real excited.

But then he says they need to slow down, get nude together, doing romantic stuff like whispering in her ear, so it's memorable for her.

They he's using pretty flowery language, but basically he wants to get down and dirty with her, so she's bouncing around to his rhythm, there's plenty of oral stuff going down, and his hands are all over the place, and she's loving it.  So now it's so mind-blowing she's forgetting even her name.  Dang man!

Back to reality... He's not there yet...

His mate Yankee Daddy is giving it, and telling her it's gonna be great - just what she needs.  Try my mouth's taste, he says.

The plan is start of slow, flirting.  She's an enigma, but he's got the key.

Anyway back to where we were...  now they banging away on a beach in his hometown of Puerto Rico, till even the waves are screaming.  Dang man!

So this was a massive hit for the boys Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee as we all know.  No surprise really; fantastic sound, lovely sexy hot lyrics.

It doesn't use explicit words; but boy are the themes and euphemisms there aplenty.

There are a couple of abbreviations "pa'" for "para" and "empezamos" lost the "s" at the end - easy enough to figure out. 

I'm guess on the "pegando" word - but there is a look up for 'flirting' and that seems to make sense.

You can read Luis Fonsi's own commentary on the genius page for this song.  Spoiler alert: he's pretty vague about the sexy metaphors.  But then we knew that already.

Luis Fonsi, Yankee Daddy (what sort of name is that?) and not forgetting the silent but no doubt fragrant Zuleyka Rivera managed to make a video that is so sexy, yet can be played on TV screens anywhere.  Bit of a feat if you ask me.   However since it is basically X-rated lyrics, it is not possible to 'act out' the lyrics on the video - so it's all left to your imagination.

The song has had x billion views on YouTube or whatever, up there with dancing Korean, and stimulated millions to try to learn a bit of Spanish.   It still sounds OK today, some 4 years after release, but maybe we need to move on a little..... Fonsi?  How about a follow up?

Ay



Fonsi



DY



Oh-oh



Oh no, oh no (oh)



Hey yeah



Diridiri, dirididi Daddy



Go



Yeah, you know I've been looking at you for a while.



I have to dance with you today (DY)



I saw that your gaze was already calling me



Show me the path I go



Oh



You, you are the magnet and I am the metal



I'm going closer and I'm going to organise the plan



Just with thinking about it gets the pulse going



Oh yeah



Already, already I'm liking it more than usual



All my sense are asking for more



This must be taken without any hurry



Slowly



I want to breathe your neck slowly



Let me say things into your ear



So that you can remember if your not with me



Slowly



I want to undress you with kisses slowly



Sign the walls of your labyrinth



And make your body a whole manuscript (go up, go up, go up)



(Up, up) Oh



I want to see your hair dance



I want to be your rythym



That you teach to my mouth



Your favourite places



Let me overpass



Your danger zones



To make you moan



And that you forget your surname



I know you're thinking about it



I've been trying for a long time



Mam this is giving and giving it



You know that your heart with me makes you bam bam



You know that babe is searching for my bam bam



Come try my mouth to see how it tastes



I want I want I want to see how much love you can take



I'm not in a hurry I want to take the journey



We start off slow later savage



Step by step softly very softly



We go flirting little by little



When you kiss me with such skill



I see that you are malice with delicacy



Step by step softly very softly



We go flirting little by little



And is it that this beauty is a puzzle



But to ride it here I have the piece



slowly



I want to breathe your neck slowly



Let me tell you things in your ear (yeh)



So that you can remember if your not with me



Slowly



I want to undress you to kisses slowly (yeh)



Sign the walls of your labyrinth



And to make your body all a manuscript up, up, up



(Up, up) Oh



I want to see your hair dance



I want to be your rythym



That you teach to my mouth



Your favorite places (eh-oh) (favorite, favorite baby)



Let me go over



Your danger zones (uh-oh) (uh-oh, uh-oh)



To make you moan



And that you forget your surname



Slowly



We going to do it on a beach in Puerto Rico



Until the waves cry Oh God



So that my seal stays with you (dance it)



Step by step softly very softly



We go flirting little by little



That you teach to my mouth



Your favourite places



Step by step softly very softly



We going to flirt little by little



To make you moan



And that you forget your surname



Slowly
