This is for the dirty girls
All around the world, here we go
Dirty, dirty dancer

'Nother day, 'nother night
And she acting like she don't sleep
She's a five when she drinks
But she's a ten when she's on top of me

She don't want love she just wanna touch
She's a greedy girl to never get enough
She don't wanna love she just wanna touch
Got all the moves that make you get it up

She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
Never ever lonely
She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
You'll never be her only

She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
Never ever lonely
She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
You'll never be her only

It's a game that she plays
She can win with her eyes closed
It's insane how she tames
She can turn you to an animal

She don't want love she just wanna touch
She's a greedy girl to never get enough
She don't wanna love she just wanna touch
She's got all the moves that make you give it up

She's a dirty, dirty, dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
Never ever lonely
She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
You'll never be her only

She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
Never ever lonely
She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
You'll never be her only, never be her only

She never satisfied
You better do it right before you're lonely
No, she's never satisfied
You better do it right before you're lonely

She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
Never ever lonely
She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
You'll never be her only

She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
Never ever lonely
She's a dirty, dirty dancer, dirty, dirty dancer
You'll never be her only
You'll never be her only

The girl don't stop
Dirty dancer
The girl don't stop
The girl don't stop
Dirty dancer

The girl don't stop
The girl don't stop
Dirty dancer
The girl don't stop
The girl don't stop

    To me, Dirty Dancer is a song about an experience with a dominating partner, who, while infatuating, is never going to be content with staying with one lover. As the chorus of the song states, the Dirty Dancer is never lonely, and the listener (or Enrique) will "never be her only", suggesting that she does not stay in monogamous relationships for very long. The song describes the character as being greedy, and never getting enough, stating that she's "never satisfied" and that if the listener doesn't "do it right" with her (either through charm or bedroom behaviour) then she will quickly get bored with them and move onto the next partner. "it's insane how she tames, she can turn you into an animal" suggests that the Dirty Dancer character is the dominant partner in the relationship and that she brings out quite an animalistic side in Enrique/the listener. The song gives the impression that the relationship is mostly superficial with the repeated line "she don't want love, she just wanna touch" which suggests that it is based more on sexual desire than any desire for a long lasting commitment. Whether or not the song is encouraging or discouraging this kind of behaviour is unclear. Enrique at the beginning dedicates the track to "the dirty girls all around the world".

    Eh? I don't know, but shouldn't it be "but she's a two when she's on top of me" instead of "but she's a ten when she's on top of me"? Wouldn't that make more sense anyways? That she's good at holding her alcohol (a size 5) but is still light and slim (a size two).
    The meaning's pretty obvious too, that a girl's a dirty dancer and wants to get some by making guys horny with said dancing. : p
