MACARENA

Macarena - just the name is enough. Conjuring up images up nightclubs and party scenes full of people dancing to it, following the steps like book work (well, most of them - the others try!).

Macarena started off in 1993 as a flamenco composed and released by the Spanish duo Los Del Rio, sweeping across Spain. Today, off course, it's on the air all around the globe, with its demand increasing all the time. People who don't know a word of Spanish have taken to it - dancing to it with electric fervor.

Most people just follow the word 'Macarena'. Not surprisingly, since a large proportion of the people dancing to it do not know Spanish. So here are the the lyrics of the song, in Spanish, their English translation, and parts of the Bayside Boys mix, the version which is doing the rounds these days.

Spanish English
Dale a tu cuerpo alegria Macarena Give your body pleasure, Macarena
Que tu cuerpo es pa' darle alegria y cosa buena Because your body is for giving it pleasure and good things
Dale a tu cuerpo alegria Macarena Give your body pleasure, Macarena
Ehhhh, Macarena Ehhhh, Macarena
Macarena tiene un novio que se llama Macarena has a boyfriend whose name is
Que se llama de apellido Vitorino Whose last name is Vitorino
Y en la jura de bandera del muchacho And during his military swearing in
Se la dio con dos amigos She got together with two of his friends
Macarena, Macarena, Macarena Macarena, Macarena, Macarena
Que le gusta los veranos de Marbella Who likes the summers of Marbella
Macarena, Macarena, Macarena Macarena, Macarena, Macarena
Que le gusta la movida guerrilera Who likes the guerrila lifestyle
Macarena suena con el Corte Ingles Macarena dreams of the Corte Ingles (High-class dept. store)
Y se compra los mnodelos mas modernos And she likes the most recent fashions
Le gustaria vivir en Nueva York She'd like to live in New York
Y ligar un novio nuevo And trap a new boyfriend

Bayside Boys mix
I am not trying to seduce you...
When I dance they call me Macarena
And the boys, they say que soy buena
They all want me, they can't have me
So they come and dance beside me
Move with me, chant with me
And if you're good, I'll take you home with me.

Now don't you worry about my boyfriend
The boy whose name is Vitorino
I don't want him, couldn't stand him
He was no good, so I...ha,ha,ha,ha,ha

Now come on, what was I supposed to do?
He was out of town and his two friends were soooooo fine.

------

I am not trying to seduce you

Come and find me, my name is Macarena
always at the the party con las chicas que soy buena
come join me, dance with me
and you fellows chant along with me.
Move with me, chant with me
And if you're good, I'll take you home with me.
