The song Despacito took 1st place in Spotify's "most streamed songs" list in countries all over the world- so you'll hear it on English radio stations as well as Spanish.  We've translated the original song for you here, which (heads up) is pretty dirty in English (it was actually banned in Malaysia on all public TV and radio stations for being obscene, though the Justin Bieber remix is still allowed on the air). 

Here's the official music video so you can listen along to the Lyrics:

 

Despacito

Sí, sabes que ya llevo un rato mirándote = Yeah, you know I’ve been watching you for awhile

Tengo que bailar contigo hoy = I’ve gotta dance with you today

 

Vi que tu mirada ya estaba llamándome = I saw that your look was calling me

Muéstrame el camino que yo voy, oh = Show me the way and I’ll go, oh


 

Tú, tú eres el imán y yo soy el metal = You, you’re the magnet and I’m the metal

Me voy acercando y voy armando el plan = I get closer and I go putting together the plan

Solo con pensarlo se acelera el pulso = Just by thinking about it my pulse accelerates

 

(Oh, yeah)

Ya, ya me está gustando más de lo normal = Already, I already like you more than normal

Todos mis sentidos van pidiendo más = All of my feelings are asking for more

Esto hay que tomarlo sin ningún apuro = We gotta take this without any rushes


 

Des-pa-cito = Slow-ow-ow-ly

Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito = I wanna breathe in your neck slowly

Deja que te diga cosas al oído = Let me say things into your ear

Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo = So that you remember if you’re not with me

Des-pa-cito = Slow-ow-ow-ly

 

Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito = I wanna slowly undress you with my kisses

Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto = I’ll sign my autograph on the walls of your labyrinth

Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito = And make your whole body into a manuscript


 

Sube, sube, sube = Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up

Sube, sube = Turn it up, turn it up


 

Quiero ver bailar tu pelo = I wanna see your hair dancing

Quiero ser tu ritmo = I wanna be your rhythm

Que le enseñes a mi boca = Show my mouth

Tus lugares favoritos = Your favorite places

(Favorito, favorito, baby) = (Favorite, favorite, baby)

Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro = Let me get past your danger zones

Hasta provocar tus gritos = Until I provoke your screams

Y que olvides tu apellido = And you forget your last name

 

Si te pido un beso ven dámelo = If I ask for a kiss come and give it to me

Yo sé que estás pensándolo = I know you’re thinking about it

Llevo tiempo intentándolo = I’ve been trying for a while

Mami, esto es dando y dándolo = Mami, this is trying and trying

Sabes que tu corazón conmigo te hace bang-bang = You know that your heart with me goes bang-bang

Sabes que esa beba está buscando de mi bang-bang = You know that girl’s looking for my bang-bang

Ven prueba de mi boca para ver cómo te sabe = Come try my mouth to see how it tastes

Quiero, quiero, quiero ver cuánto amor a ti te cabe = I wanna, I wanna, I wanna see how much love fits inside of you

Yo no tengo prisa, yo me quiero dar el viaje = I’m not in a rush, I wanna take a trip

Empecemos lento, después salvaje = Let’s start slow, later savage

 
 

 

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito = Step by step, slow slow

Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito = We’re hitting against each other, little by little

Cuando tú me besas con esa destreza = When you kiss me with that skill

Veo que eres malicia con delicadeza = I see that you’re malice with delicacy

 

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito = Step by step, slow slow

Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito = We’re hitting against each other, little by little

Y es que esa belleza es un rompecabezas = And it’s that that beauty is a puzzle

Pero pa' montarlo aquí tengo la pieza = But in order to ride it I’ve got the piece

¡Oye! = Hey!


 

Des-pa-cito = Slow-ow-ow-ly

Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito = I want to breathe in your neck slowly

Deja que te diga cosas al oído = Let me say things into your ear

Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo = So that you remember if you’re not with me

Des-pa-cito = Slow-ow-ow-ly

 

Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito = I wanna slowly undress you with my kisses

Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto = I’ll sign my autograph on the walls of your labyrinth

Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito = And make your whole body into a manuscript

 

Sube, sube, sube = Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up

Sube, sube = Turn it up, turn it up

 

Quiero ver bailar tu pelo = I wanna see your hair dancing

Quiero ser tu ritmo = I wanna be your rhythm

Que le enseñes a mi boca = Show my mouth

Tus lugares favoritos = Your favorite places

Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro = Let me past your danger zones

Hasta provocar tus gritos = Until I provoke your screams

Y que olvides tu apellido = And you forget your last name


 

Des-pa-cito = Slow-ow-ow-ly

Vamo' a hacerlo en una playa en Puerto Rico = We’re gonna do it on a beach in Puerto Rico

Hasta que las olas griten "¡Ay, Bendito!" =  Until the waves scream “Oh, Blessed One!”

Para que mi sello se quede contigo = So that my seal stays with you

¡Bailalo! = Dance it!


 

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito = Step by step, slow slow

Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito = We’re hitting against each other, little by little



 

Que le enseñes a mi boca = Show my mouth

Tus lugares favoritos = Your favorite places



 

Favorito, favorito, baby = Favorite, favorite, baby

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito = Step by step, slow slow

Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito = We’re hitting against each other, little by little

 

Hasta provocar tus gritos  = Until I provoke your screams

Y que olvides tu apellido  = And you forget your last name

Des-pa-cito = Slow-ow-ow-ly
