Shakira – Hips Don't Lie lyrics

[Intro: Wyclef Jean]
Ladies up in here tonight..
No fighting, no fighting
(We got the refugees up in here)
No fighting, no fighting
Shakira, Shakira

[Hook 1a: Wyclef Jean]
I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man wants to speak Spanish
Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa
Shakira, Shakira

[Hook 1b: Shakira]
Oh baby, when you talk like that
You make a woman go mad
So be wise, and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

[Hook 2: Shakira]
And I'm on tonight, you know my hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel it's right
All the attraction, the tension
Don't you see baby, this is perfection

[Verse 1: Wyclef Jean]
Hey Girl, I can see your body moving
And it's driving me crazy
And I didn't have the slightest idea
Until I saw you dancing
And when you walk up on the dance floor
Nobody cannot ignore the way you move your body, girl
And everything so unexpected - the way you right and left it
So you can keep on shaking it

[Hook 1a]
[Hook 1b]

Hook 2 [x2]

[Verse 2: Shakira]
Oh boy, I can see your body moving
Half animal, half man
I don't, don't really know what I'm doing
But you seem to have a plan
My will and self restraint
Have come to fail now, fail now
See, I am doing what I can, but I can't so you know
That's a bit too hard to explain

[Interlude: Wyclef Jean]
Baila en la calle de noche Baila en la calle de día
Baila en la calle de noche Baila en la calle de día

[Hook 1a]
[Hook 1b]

[Bridge: Wyclef Jean]
Senorita, feel the conga
Let me see you move like you come from Colombia
Mira en Barranquilla se baila así, say it!
Mira en Barranquilla se baila así

[Verse 3: Wyclef Jean]
Yeah, she's so sexy every man's fantasy
A refugee like me back with the Fugees from a 3rd world country
I go back like when 'Pac carried crates for Humpty Humpty
I need a whole club dizzy
Why the CIA wanna watch us? Colombians and Haitians
I ain't guilty, it's a musical transaction
No more do we snatch ropes
Refugees run the seas, cause we own our own boats

[Hook 2 x2]
