Sí, ya es hora de esconder del mundo el dolor
Bajo la piel
Mas sé 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

Ahí 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

Sí, 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 al azar
Entiendo que he comenzado a estorbar
Pronto estaré de ti
Muy, muy lejos

Ahí 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

Ah
Ah

Ahí 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

Ahí 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

Ahí te dejo Madrid
Madrid
A tu boca de anís
A tu boca de anís, yeah

    I 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!

    This 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.

    I 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!

    Hey 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"

    Translation

    just 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
