(Feat. Wyclef Jean)

Ladies up in here tonight
No fighting, no fighting
We got the refugees up in here
No fighting, no fighting

Shakira, Shakira

I Never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa?

Shakira, 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

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

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

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Como se llama, si bonita, si mi casa, su casa

Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby when you talk like that
You make the woman go mad
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

I am on tonight
You know my hips don't lie
And I am starting to feel you boy
Come on lets go, real slow
Don't you see baby asi es perfecto

Oh I know I am on tonight my hips don't lie
And I am starting to feel it's right
All the attraction, the tension
Don't you see baby, this is perfection

Shakira, 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

Baila en la calle de noche
Baila en la calle de noche

Baila en la calle de noche
Baila en la calle de dнa

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Como se llama, si bonita, si mi casa, su casa

Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby when you talk like that
You know you got me hypnotized
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

Seсorita, feel the conga, let me see you move like you come from Colombia

Mira en Barranquilla se baila asн, say!
Mira en Barranquilla se baila asн

Yeah

She's so sexy every man's fantasy a refugee like me back with the refugees from a 3rd world country
I go back like when 'pac carried crates for Humpty Humpty
We need a whole club dizzy
Why the CIA wanna watch?
From 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

I'm on tonight, my hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel you boy
Come on let's go, real slow
Baby, like this is perfecto

Oh, you know I'm on tonight and my hips don't lie
And I am starting to feel it's right
The attraction, the tension
Baby, like this is perfection.

No fighting!

No Fighting.

    I think this song is talking about how if you're bored, just dance and let all the man (if you're a woman) think you're amazing...
