"Quedate Luna" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Yo no me he tomado
Pero me voy a tomar un traguito ahora
Y se que lo que mas espero
Lo mas que se me enamora

Tres, siete, diez
Ya no me ves
Pero se aleja
Digo tu nombre
Ya sabrás quien es
Soy el perro a tus pies
Que te muerde la costilla
La entreabría y la luna se sienta en su silla

¿Qué tomas lunita y porqué estas tan amarilla?
Bueno, ya estoy cansada y mis hijas ya me llaman viejita
El pelo tan seco y mi piel ya no brilla
Pero el mundo es tuyo, esta noche eres mía

Así que
Quédate, quédate luna
Quédate, quédate luna
Quédate, quédate luna
Quédate, quédate luna

Mira a Dios en el aire, mira a Dios en el mar
Yo te doy toda mi vida para oírte cantar
Oye a Dios en el viento, prueba a Dios en la piel
Dios vive afuera y adentro también

Dímelo, dímelo luna
Dímelo, dímelo luna
Dímelo, dímelo luna
Dímelo, dímelo luna
Dímelo, dímelo luna
Dímelo, dímelo luna
Dímelo, dímelo luna
Dímelo, dímelo luna

Yo no me he tomado
Pero me voy a tomar un traguito ahora
Y se que lo que mas espero
Lo mas que se me enamora

    General CommentI haven't drunk
    But I will have a drink now
    And I know what I I expect the most
    What makes me fall in love the most

    three, seven, ten
    You don't see me anymore
    But maybe if
    I say your name
    You'll know who it is
    I'm the dog at your feet
    the one that bites your rib
    The stars shine and the moon sits on its chair

    what do you drink, little moon?
    and why are you so yellow?
    well, I'm tired now and my daughters say I'm old
    My hair is so dry and my skin doesn't shine anymore
    But the world is yours, tonight your mine

    so
    stay, moon, stay
    stay, moon, stay
    stay, moon, stay
    stay, moon, stay

    See god in the air, see god in the sea
    I give you my whole life to hear you sing
    Hear god in the wind, taste god in the honey
    God lives outside and inside too

    say it to me, say it to me, moon
    say it to me, say it to me, moon
    say it to me, say it to me, moon
    say it to me, say it to me, moon
    say it to me, say it to me, moon
    say it to me, say it to me, moon
    say it to me, say it to me, moon
    say it to me, say it to me, moon

    I haven't drunk
    but I will have a drink now
    and I know what I expect the most
    what makes me fall in love the most.



    I'm from Chile so yeah I know spanish...
    The lyrics are pretty hard to translate cause he's using a centro-american form of spanish.

    *By the way "entreabría" IS a word but it doesn't have a literal meaning in english.

    General Comment"Pero el mundo es tuyo, esta noche eres mía"

    ...Though the world is yours, tonight, you are mine.

    That's all a couple introductory spanish classes are going to give me.

    General Commentploison, sorry to disappoint you but "Pero el mundo es tuyo, esta noche eres mía" means "But the world is yours, tonight you are mine".
    That's what he says to the moon when "she" answers "bueno, ya estoy cansada y mis hijas ya me llaman viejita / el pelo tan seco y mi piel ya no brilla" which means "well, i'm tired and my daughters are telling me i'm old / my hair is so opaque and my skin ain't radiant anymore" to his question "¿qué tomas lunita y porqué estás tan amarilla?" ( "tell me little moon what are you drinking and why are you so yellow?")

    Rough Translation:

    What are you drinking little moon and why are you so yellow?
    Well I"m already tired and my daughters call me old
    My hair is so dry and my skin doesnt shine.
    But the world is yours, tonight you are mine.


    Look at god in the air, look at god in the sea
    I'll give you all my life just to hear you sing
    Hear God in the wind, feel God on the skin
    God lives outside and inside as well

    Quedate means stay and Dímelo means tell me

    General CommentThis song is just so gorgeous. The simplicity in which he sings it, combined with his voice is what makes it this breath-taking.

    Now, I'd interpret it, but I don't speak spanish and there isn't a translation of the lyrics.

    Oh well.
    Still a gorgeous song.

    General Commenti THINK this is it...

    I haven't drunk
    But i'll take a drink now
    And I know what I expect the most
    What makes me fall in love

    Three, Seven Ten
    You can't see me
    But perhaps
    If I say your name
    You'll know who it is
    I'm the dog at your feet
    That bites your ribs
    And the stars shine and the moon sits on its chair

    What are you drinking moon and why are you so yellow?
    Well, I'm tired and my daughters they call me old
    My hair is dry and my skin has no glow
    But the world is yours, but tonight you are mine

    So
    Stay, stay moon
    Stay, stay moon
    Stay, stay moon
    Stay, stay moon

    Look at god in the air, look at god in the sea
    I give you my life just to hear you sing
    Hear god in the wind, taste god in the honey
    God lives outside and inside also

    So
    Tell me, tell me moon
    Tell me, tell me moon
    Tell me, tell me moon
    Tell me, tell me moon
    Tell me, tell me moon
    Tell me, tell me moon
    Tell me, tell me moon
    Tell me, tell me moon

    I haven't drunk
    But i'll take a drink now
    And I know what I expect the most
    What makes me fall in love

    General CommentI know Devendra doesn't pronounce the S's he sings more of the spanish you'd hear in Spain.
    Wonderful song nonetheless.
