"Te Dejo Madrid" as written by Timothy C. Mitchell, George R. Noriega and Shakira Isabel Mebarak....
Si ya es hora de esconder
Del mundo el dolor
Bajo la piel
Más se que estaré bien
Los gatos como yo caen de pie
No quiero
Jugar mi suerte por ti
No puedo
Con V pequeña vivir
Pronto estaré de aquí
Muy muy lejos

Ay me voy otra vez
Ahí te dejo Madrid
Tus rutinas de piel
Y tus ganas de huir
Yo no quiero cobardes
Que me hagan sufrir
Mejor le digo adiós
A tu boca de anís

Si ya es hora de limpiar
Las manchas de miel
Sobre el mantel
Yo nunca supe actuar
Y mis labios se ven
Muertos de sed

No quiero dejarlo todo a lazar
Entiendo
Que he comenzado a estorbar
Pronto estaré de ti
Muy muy lejos

Ay me voy otra vez
Ahí te dejo Madrid
Tus rutinas de piel
Y tus ganas de huir
Yo no quiero cobardes
Que me hagan sufrir
Mejor le digo adiós

A tu boca de anís

    General CommentI think if you go to her website, she has translations of her Spanish songs. Might check that out.
    This is an awesome song! I know a little bit of Spanish, and I can sing along pretty well without tripping up too much. I love it!

    General CommentThis was one of the songs that first turned me on to Shakira... the music video is a little bit stupid, but whatever... she's hot.

    General CommentI am definitely not fluent in Spanish, but when I listened to this song the first time, I was amazed I liked it. You would think it'd be hard to like a song if you don't even know the language but let me tell ya...Shakira did it. And I'd love to sit here and let you all know what I THINK the meaning is, but hell I don't!

    General CommentHey guys, I'm fluent in Spanish therefore I will tell you all what the song's about:

    It's basically about a woman who has some sort of fling in the city of Madrid, Spain.

    Te Dejo Madrid translates to "I am Leaving You, Madrid"

    Translationjust in case someone drops by looking for a translation:

    uh... ah ah
    si, ya es hora de esconder
    del mundo el dolor
    bajo la piel
    YEAH IT'S TIME TO HIDE PAIN
    FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD
    (HIDE IT) UNDER MY SKIN

    yo se que estare bien
    los gatos como yo
    caen de pie
    I KNOW I'LL BE OK
    CAT LIKE MYSELF
    LAND ON THEIR FEET


    no quiero
    jugar mi suerte por ti
    y no puedo
    con f?� peque?a vivir
    pronto estare de aqu??
    muy muy lejos
    I DON'T WANT
    TO TRY MY LUCK
    WITH YOU (meaning i don't want to bet on this realtionship cause you're not commited)
    AND I CAN'T LIVE
    WITH A SMALL "l"
    SOON I'LL REALLY REALLY
    FAR FROM HERE


    [coro]

    ay me voy otra vez
    ay te dejo Madrid
    las rutinas de piel
    y tus ganas de huir
    OH I'M LEAVING OPNCE MORE
    I'M LEAVING YOU MADRID
    THE SKIN ROUTINES
    AND YOUR NEED FOR ESCAPE
    (this would mean she's leaving the guy cause he wouldn't adjust to the couples routine, to being with the same woman always and was always trying to get out of the realtionship)

    yo no quiero cobardes
    que me hagan sufrir
    mejor le digo adios
    a tu boca de anis
    I DON'T WANT ANY COWARD
    MAKING ME SUFFER
    I BETTER SAY GOODBYE
    TO YOUR "ANIS" MOUTH
    (anis bieng a typical strong alcoholic drink in Spain)

    si, ya es hora de limpiar
    las manchas de miel
    sobre el mantel
    YEAH IT'S TIME TO CLEAN
    THE HONEY STAINS
    ON THE TABLECLOTH

    yo nunca supe actuar
    mis labios se ven
    muertos de sed
    I'VE NEVER KNOWN HOW TO PRETEND
    MY LIPS ARE DYING WITH THIRST

    no quiero
    dejarlo todo al azar
    entiendo
    que he comenzado a estorbar
    pronto estare de ti
    muy muy lejos
    I DON'T WANT TO
    LEAVE EVERYTHING TO CHANCE
    I UNDERSTAND I'VE STARTED TO
    BE A PROBLEM
    I'LL SOON BE REALLY REALLY
    FAR FROM HERE


    [coro]

    AHI me voy otra vez
    AHI te dejo Madrid
    las rutinas de piel
    y tus ganas de huir

    yo no quiero cobardes
    que me hagan sufrir
    mejor le digo adi?Rs
    a tu boca de anis

    ah, aah
    (arm?Rnica)

    [coro x2]

    ay te dejo madrid
    madrid
    a tu boca de anis
    a tu boca de anis
