Lucky you were born that far away
So we could both make fun of distance
Lucky that I love a foreign land for
The lucky fact of your existence
Baby I would climb the Andes solely
To count the freckles on your body
Never could imagine there were only
Ten million ways to love somebody

Le ro lo le lo le
Le ro lo le lo le
Can't you see...I'm at your feet

Whenever, Wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear
Thereover, here under
You'll never have to wonder
We can always play by ear
But that's the deal my dear

Lucky that my lips not only mumble
they spill kisses like a fountain
Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
So you don't confuse them with mountains
Lucky I have strong legs like my mother
To run for cover when I need it
And these two eyes laugh for no other
The day you leave they'll cry a river

Le ro lo le lo le
Le ro lo le lo le

At your feet...I'm at your feet

Whenever, Wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear
Thereover, here under
You'll never have to wonder
We can always play by ear
But that's the deal my dear

Le ro lo le lo le
Le ro lo le lo le

Think out loud, say it again

Le ro lo le lo le lo le

Tell me one more time
That you'll live
Lost in my eyes

Whenever, wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear
You're over, you're under
You've got me head over heels
There's nothing left to fear
If you really feel the way I feel

Whenever, wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear
You're over, you're under
You've got me head over heels
There's nothing left to fear
If you really feel the way I feel

    General CommentOh man, if only all females could have hips and asses like Shakira, I would be in Heaven, or something very close to itt.

    o.O Thanks for making us feel even more inadequate.

    General CommentWhen it comes to music, you don't HAVE to rhyme. I know very many songs that don't rhyme and they sound just fine. Look at Shakespeare's poetry...a lot of his words don't rhyme perfectly. He uses various different words in his poetry/sonnets to make ending rhymes. At least Shakira's not using just plain and simple lyrics like most of the singers today. She goes deep into what she writes and uses detail. I like how she goes into detail of the little things. Because to a lot of people, it's the little things that mean the most. She has her own style of writing. Also, that's the advantage of singing...being able to make syllables seem longer or more to them. Shakira takes that advantage as an opportunity. Therefore, let her be.

    When you are in love over distance, it can be so tough because you can't just go over to his/her house or talk on the phone. There are so many things to consider...trustworthiness, faithfulness, long-distance bills, a desire to see him/her, etc. etc. etc. There are numerous reasons why long-distance relationships don't work. Shakira writes of being in one and it not only working, but her happiness in it; that's so awesome.

    General Commenti don't care much for shakira, but i like the message behind the song, which is that when you love someone, nothing else matters.
