"Alejandro" as written by and Stefani Germanotta Nadir Khayat....
I know that we are young,
And I know that you may love me,
But I just can't be with you like this anymore,
Alejandro

She's got both hands
In her pocket
And she won't look at you
Won't look at you
She hides true love
En su bolsillo
She got a halo around her finger
Around you

You know that I love you boy
Hot like Mexico, rejoice
At this point I gotta choose
Nothing to lose

Don't call my name
Don't call my name, Alejandro
I'm not your babe
I'm not your babe, Fernando

Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch
Just smoke my cigarette and hush
Don't call my name
Don't call my name, Roberto

Alejandro
Alejandro
Ale-ale-jandro
Ale-ale-jandro

Alejandro
Alejandro
Ale-ale-jandro
Ale-ale-jandro

Stop, please,
Just let me go Alejandro,
Just let me go

She's not broken
She's just a baby
But her boyfriend's like a dad, just like a dad
And all those flames that burned before him
Now he's gonna fire fight, gotta cool the bad

You know that I love you boy
Hot like Mexico, rejoice
At this point I've gotta choose
Nothing to lose

Don't call my name
Don't call my name, Alejandro
I'm not your babe
I'm not your babe, Fernando

Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch
Just smoke my cigarette and hush
Don't call my name
Don't call my name, Roberto

Alejandro
Alejandro
Ale-ale-jandro
Ale-ale-jandro

Alejandro
Alejandro
Ale-ale-jandro
Ale-ale-jandro

Don't bother me,
Don't bother me, Alejandro
Don't call my name,
Don't call my name, bye, Fernando
I'm not your babe,
I'm not your babe, Alejandro
Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch,
Fernando

Don't call my name,
Don't call my name, Alejandro
I'm not your babe,
I'm not your babe, Fernando
Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch
Just smoke my cigarette and hush
Don't call my name,
Don't call my name,
Roberto

Alejandro
Alejandro
Ale-ale-jandro
Ale-ale-jandro

Alejandro
Alejandro
Ale-ale-jandro
Ale-ale-jandro

Don't call my name,
Don't call my name, Alejandro
I'm not your babe,
I'm not your babe, Fernando
Don't wanna kiss, don't wanna touch
Just smoke my cigarette and hush
Don't call my name,
Don't call my name, Roberto

Alejandro

    General CommentI got this song 6 days ago and my itunes play count is 90.. lol I'm OBSESSED. But as such, I'm pretty sure I have a good handle on the meaning of this song.

    She's in love with Alejandro, who is young, hot, and poor. But she's now telling him she can't be with him because she's engaged to an older, wealthier man. She's debated over whether she should choose love or security, and she picked security "I just can't be with you like this anymore"

    She hides true love en su bosillo (in his wallet)-she hides her love for Alejandro and attempts to replace it with her fiancee's money

    She's got a halo around her finger around you-She's got her big engagement ring around her finger, and the older man is totally infatuated with her, he gives her everything she wants

    The chorus "you know that I love you boy".. she's singing to Alejandro, telling him that he knows she knows she loves him, and one day maybe she'll come back to him, but not now.

    "Don't call my name..." telling all her past lovers (including Alejandro) to not call on her because she's a taken woman

    Don't wanna kiss don't wanna touch.. she doesn't want to give in and cheat on her fiancee even though she's not in love with him

    "She's not broken, she's just a baby"-she knows what she's doing- using him for his money, she wasn't forced into this

    "But her boyfriend's like her dad, just like a dad." he's much, much older than her and very rich so he takes care of her

    "And all those flames that
    Burned before him,
    Now he's gotta firefight
    Gotta cool the bad"

    all the lovers she had before..alejandro, fernando, roberto- she's got to "put out" their flames because she's getting married

    he's got to help her "overcome" her love for all those other men by being a good doting husband (although she'll never be attracted to him, and probably never love him)

    at this point in the chorus i think she's singing "you know that I love you boy, hot like mexico.." to her fiancee, which shows her superficial feelings for him.

    and then finally in the song, I think her old fiancee/ husband dies, she gets all his money and goes back to Alejandro.

    It's really kind of sad for the old man, but I love this concept. I'm making a music video for it!
