"No Hay Igual" as written by Nelly Furtado, Nisan Stewart, Nate Hills, Timothy Mosley and Rene Perez....
CHORUS

Quiero tu solo
no es lo mismo
por eso espero
huele mi cuerpo
tú me encantas
el tiempo pasa
no quiero otro
no hay igual

Quiero tu solo
no es lo mismo
por eso espero
huele mi cuerpo
tú me encantas,
el tiempo pasa
no quiero otro
no hay igual

No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No-No-No-No No hay igual

No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No-No-No-No No hay igual


(What it is?)
Ven y mira lo!
Venga y acaba con mi dolor
Loco para ti por favor, y ya conozco tu olor

(What it is?)
Mucho gusto señor
Cuando estoy contigo siento tanto calor.
Me pongo loco con tu amor
Y ya entiendo tu valor

Quiero tu solo
no es lo mismo
por eso espero
huele mi cuerpo
tú me encantas
el tiempo pasa
no quiero otro
no hay igual

Quiero tu solo
no es lo mismo
por eso espero
huele mi cuerpo
tú me encantas,
el tiempo pasa
no quiero otro
no hay igual

No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No-No-No-No No hay igual

No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No-No-No-No No hay igual

el hambre que tengo tienes que matar
mi copa otro día tienes que llenar
Dime que nunca me vas dejar
(What it is?)
Pero no demoras. Cada día mi cuerpo llora
cuantas cosas quiero, a ese señor
quiero que yo quiero, yo lo quiero ahora

Quiero tu solo
no es lo mismo
por eso espero
huele mi cuerpo
tú me encantas
el tiempo pasa
no quiero otro
no hay igual

Quiero tu solo
no es lo mismo
por eso espero
huele mi cuerpo
tú me encantas,
el tiempo pasa
no quiero otro
no hay igual

No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No-No-No-No No hay igual

No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No-No-No-No No hay igual

Me levantas cuando cantas a mi nombre (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Me levantas cuando cantas a mi nombre (oh-oh-ohhhh)
Ay que lindo, es mi chico, tengo listo (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Ay que niño, necesito, tu sonido (ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhh)

Quiero tu solo
no es lo mismo
por eso espero
huele mi cuerpo
tú me encantas
el tiempo pasa
no quiero otro
no hay igual

Quiero tu solo
no es lo mismo
por eso espero
huele mi cuerpo
tú me encantas,
el tiempo pasa
no quiero otro
no hay igual

No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No-No-No-No No hay igual

No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
No-No-No-No No hay igual

    General CommentFrom what I understand of Spanish, I'll put the English part in brackets. I've heard different lyrics though, so I'll post those as well:

    Quiero tesoro, no hay algo mismo
    Por eso espero, duele mi cuerpo
    Tu me encantas, el tiempo pasa
    No quiero otro, no hay igual!

    No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
    No hay igual (Que hacemos?)
    No-No-No-No No hay igual

    (What it is?)
    Ven y mira lo!
    Venga y nunca va con mi dolor
    Loco para ti por favour, y ya conozco tu olor
    (What it is?)
    Mucho gusto senor
    Cuando estoy contigo siento tanto calor.
    Me pongo loco con tu amor
    Y ya entiendo tu valor

    El hambre que tengo tienes que matar
    Mi copa decia tienes que llenar
    Pues noches ojos tienes que capar
    Dime que nunca me vas dejar (What it is?)
    Pero no demoras. Cada dia mi cuerpo llora
    Cuantas cosas quiero esa senor
    Quiero que yo quiero, y lo quiero ahora. (What it is?)

    Ni levantas cuando cantas a mi nombre (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
    Ni levantas cuando cantas a mi nombre (oh-oh-ohhhh)
    Ay que lindo, es mi chico tengo listo (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
    Ay que nino, necesito, tu sonido (ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhhh)

    **
    I want a treasure, there’s nothing equal
    For that I’m waiting, my body hurts
    I really like you [Well, literally, you are enchanting to me], my body hurts
    I don’t want another, there is no one the same
    There is no one the same (What do we do?)
    There is no one the same (What do we do?)

    (What it is?) Come and look at it!
    You come and never leave with my pain.
    (What it is?) I am crazy for you, please, and I already know your scent
    (What it is?) My pleasure, sir
    When I am with you, I feel so much heat.
    I go crazy with your love
    And I already understand your (honor?)

    The hunger that I have, you have to kill.
    My cup says you have to fill
    (well?) night eyes you have to cap
    Tell me that you are not going to leave me (behind) (What it is?)
    How many things, I want that man.
    I want what I want, and I want it now (What it is?)


    Don’t get up when you sing my name (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    Don’t get up when you sing my name (oh-oh-ohhh)
    Ay, how cute is my guy, (??) (oh-oh-oh-oh)
    Ay, that boy, I need, your (?? Sound? Song??) (ah-ah-ah-ahhh) ]**

    General Commentokay, she really says the same thing over and over, and it is all sexual....she kinda sounds like a slut.. Seems she's talking to the man she has an affair with.. here is the translation, put to it;s most basic form, not that Nelly used a very complicated form anyway....
    LYRICS...

    Smell my body, when you treat me the time goes on
    i dont want another, there's not the same
    no no no no there's not the same
    there's not the same
    there's not the same
    no no no no there's not the same
    come here and finish with my pain, im crazy for your love
    please come with me
    i already know your smell
    when i am with you i feel warm and understan ur pain
    you need to kill the man that i have
    my little empty you need to fill, tell me u wont leave me ever
    when you treat me time goes on, i odnt want another there's not the same......

    and thats practically all the lyrics, the rest is just like- oh oh boy, i need your love, i want it now, fill me up (in only a sexual way)...

    yeah- very basic, shallow lyrics...

    General Commentthere are a couple of little problems with the posted lyrics:
    1) mi copa otro día tienes que llenar -- I'm pretty sure she's actually seeing "mi copa vecia tienes que llenar" ("you need to fill my empty cup")
    2) quiero que yo quiero, yo lo quiero ahora--here, I think she says "quiero lo que quiero, y lo quiero ahora" ("I want what I want, and I want it right now")
    3) there's a missing verse:
    Me levantas cuando cantas a mi nombre
    Me levantas cuando cantas a mi nombre
    Ay cariño, es mi chico, tengo listo
    Ay cariño, necesito tu sonido
    (you lift me up when you sing my name
    you lift me up when you sing my name
    oh my darling, I'm ready
    oh my darling, I need your sound).

    The lyrics to this song are simple and sexually charged, but I don't think they're shallow. They're just to-the-point, sexy, and flirtatious. Not Shakespeare, but they match pace and tone of the great, percussive music.

    General CommentShe sings real fast in the song, so it does get difficult to translate for a non-natice speaker. Flippedforyou is out of line and outright wrong. She is not a slut. She is describing how no one can compare to her man. No hay igual means there is no equal. El hambre que tengo tienes que matar refers to the hunger that she has that is kills. For your education man is "hombre" She is pasionate about her man and the song is wonderful, nowhere near shallow as you so callously attribute this brilliant musician's lyrics.

    General CommentI only want you
    Nothing else is the same
    I wait for you
    Smell my body
    You enchant me
    Time passes
    I want no one else
    There's no equal

    Repeat

    There's no equal (What will we do?)
    There's no equal (What will we do?)
    There's no equal

    Repeat

    What it is?
    Come and see it!
    Come and get rid of my pain
    I'm crazy for you, and I know your smell

    What it is?
    Thanks, mister
    When I'm with you, I feel really hot
    I'm going crazy with love for you
    And I understand your value

    I only want you
    Nothing else is the same
    I wait for you
    Smell my body
    You enchant me
    Time passes
    I want no one else
    There's no equal

    Repeat

    There's no equal (What will we do?)
    There's no equal (What will we do?)
    There's no equal

    Repeat

    You can kill the hunger I have
    (something dirty which I will NOT translate for you Caroline)
    (What it is?)
    But no delays. Every day my body cries.
    How many things I want with this man
    I want what I want, I want it now.

    I only want you
    Nothing else is the same
    I wait for you
    Smell my body
    You enchant me
    Time passes
    I want no one else
    There's no equal

    Repeat

    There's no equal (What will we do?)
    There's no equal (What will we do?)
    There's no equal

    Repeat

    You lift me up when you sing my name

    You life me up when you sing my name

    Oh how handsome, he's my man, I'm ready

    Oh what a boy, I need him, your sound


    I only want you
    Nothing else is the same
    I wait for you
    Smell my body
    You enchant me
    Time passes
    I want no one else
    There's no equal

    Repeat

    There's no equal (What will we do?)
    There's no equal (What will we do?)
    There's no equal

    Repeat

    General CommentI think during the chorus, a more accurate approximation might be:

    "I only want you
    Nothing's the same
    I hope that my body smells like you after you've loved me
    I want nothing else
    It's not the same."

    I think what's throwing a lot of people off is that the sentence construction is so drastically different than it would be in English. It really doesn't translate at all into a manner that fits the rhythm and meter of the chorus.

    TranslationLOL! These lyrics are all wrong. It's not HUELE mi cuerpo, it's DUELE mi cuerpo, which means my body hurts for you. and it's not a slutty song. The literal translation is way off. She's basically saying 'I want you and only you, there is no other that's why i'm waiting, my body hurts for you there is no other,' in the chorus
