Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Dejalo, nuestra cosa

I got a mind if you want to waste it
I got a man if you want to fake it
I got some wine if you want to get wasted
I got a place if you want to

Ready to go
Ready to go
Ready to go
Ready to go

I got a tail if you want to chase it
I got a tongue if you want to taste it
I got a place on the East Side
I got some time if you want to

Ready to go
Ready to go
Ready to go
Just say so

Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Dejalo, nuestra cosa

My mama is an atheist
If I stay out late she don't get pissed
I got a place if you want to go
I got some time if you want to

Ready to go
Ready to go
(When you're) ready to go
Just say so

She sleeps on your right side
She gets nailed, I get tied
I sleep on your left side
Hundred ways to keep love alive

Ready to go
Ready to go
Ready to go
Just say so

Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Dejalo, nuestra cosa
Dejalo, nuestra cosa

    General CommentI take offense to desterado's bigoted comment about Spanish. But that aside, Spanish is my first language and i don't think her accent is that bad. I think the words are distorted in order to fit the rhythm of the song. It literally translates as "Leave it alone, Our Thing." Although someone wouldn't necessarily use that grammar in a regular conversation, i wouldnt say that it is bad grammar, it is just said in a more poetic way.

    Also i think that people should stop bitching about the fact that this album is a different from their previous work. If all artists always kept the exact same style for all of their albums fans would get bored and stop listening. why are people asking for an extension of the older albums, when a whole new album is a better, fresher experience. It's as if people had asked Picasso to keep painting in the same style all his life, when in fact he went through many different periods of styles, and is what made him the great artist we of today. Besides if you have been listening to Rilo Kiley since their Initial Friend EP you would see that they haven't been keeping the same style, but tweaking it for each new album. This is a great album. period.

    General CommentBlake said that the title means "Leave us alone, it’s our thing." I think it's just about a girl who doesn't want people to judge her simply because she's doing what she wants.

    General Commentwell, i think it translates exactly to leave it alone, our thing, or leave our thing alone, my friend, who speaks spanish, told me it was like improper grammar, bad wording. and yeah i agree, its like about someone who is just like fuck off, i'm doing my own thing or whatnot

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "I got some wine if you wanna get wasted."

    Yeah, the wording is funky. I love Jenny, but her accent's BAD in the chorus!! The rest of the song is great, though.

    General Commentdear god, this is an embarrassment to Spanish pronunciation. i hope she never tries another Spanish phrase again, for her own sake.

    General Commentthe only thing she messes up is nuestra, which is like new-ay-straw, not new-eh-straw
