We Translated 'Despacito' Lyrics So You Actually Know What The F-ck You're Singing

It took just about 7 months for Luis Fonsi's hit "Despacito" to become the most popular song in the world.

"Despacito" is presently the most streamed song ever and its accompanying YouTube video is the most viewed video of all time.

With the help of Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber on the track, the single has skyrocketed on the charts, holding the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 13 weeks.

With a myriad of people singing along to the song in the car, in the club, and in the shower, we are sure some of you had to wonder - what are the lyrics even saying?

TooFab translated the lyrics, so you can once and for all know what you're saying when mumbling along with the Spanish tune.

Lyrics:

Sí, sabes que ya llevo un rato mirándote// Tengo que bailar contigo hoy// Vi que tu mirada ya estaba llamándome// Muéstrame el camino que yo voy.

Yes, you know I’ve been looking at you for a while// I have to dance with you today// I saw that your look was already calling me// show me the way and I’ll go.

¡Oh// Tú, tú eres el imán y yo soy el metal// Me voy acercando y voy armando el plan// sólo con pensarlo se acelera el pulso// Ya, ya me está gustando más de lo normal// Todos mis sentidos van pidiendo más// Esto hay que tomarlo sin ningún apuro// Oh!

You, you’re the magnet and I’m the metal// I’m getting closer and coming up with a plan// just thinking about it accelerates my pulse// I’m already enjoying it more than normal// All of my senses are asking for more// this has to be done without a hurry.

[Chorus]

Despacito// Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito// Deja que te diga cosas al oído// para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo// Despacito// Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito// Firmar en las paredes de tu laberinto// y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito.

Quiero ver bailar tu pelo, quiero ser tu ritmo// Que le enseñes a mi boca, tus lugares favoritos// Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro// hasta provocar tus gritos// y que olvides tu apellido.

[Chorus]

Slowly I want to breathe your neck slowly// Let me whisper things in your ear// that you’ll remember when you’re not with me// Slowly// I want to undress you with kisses slowly// Sign the walls of your labyrinth// and turn your body into a manuscript// I want to see your hair dance, I want to be your rhythm I want you to show my mouth your favorite places// Let me surpass your danger zone// until it makes you scream// and makes you forget your last name.

Si te pido un beso, ven, dámelo. Yo sé que estás pensándolo// Llevo tiempo intentándolo, mami, esto es dando y dándolo// Sabes que tu corazón conmigo te hace bam-bam// Sabes que esa beba está buscando de mi bam-bam// Ven, prueba de mi boca para ver cómo te sabe// Quiero, quiero, quiero ver cuánto amor a ti te cabe// Yo no tengo prisa, yo me quiero dar el viaje// Empezamos lento, después salvaje.

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito// Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito// Cuando tú me besas con esa destreza// veo que eres malicia con delicadeza// Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito// Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito// Y es que esa belleza es un rompecabezas// pero pa’ montarlo aquí tengo la pieza// ¡Oye!

If I ask you for a kiss, come on, give it to me. I know you’re thinking about it// I’ve spent a while trying, mami, this is give and giving// You know your heart with me goes bam-bam// You know what this babe wants from me is bam-bam// Come, taste my mouth to see how it tastes to you// I want, want, want to see how much love fits in you// I’m in no rush, I want to take the ride// We’ll start slow and then go wild.

Step by step, gentle gently// We’ll get closer, little by little// When you kiss me with that skill// I see that you are malice with finesse// Step by step, gentle gently// We’ll get closer, little by little// This beauty is a puzzle// but to put it together I have the piece// Oye!

Despacito// Vamo’ a hacerlo en una playa en Puerto Rico// hasta que las olas griten “¡Ay, Bendito!”// para que mi sello se quede contigo// ¡Bailalo!

Slowly// We’re going to do it on a beach in Puerto Rico// until the waves scream 'Oh, Lord!"// so that my seal [likely meaning mark or impression] stays with you.// Dance!
