Objection
Shakira Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's not her fault that she's so irresistible
But all the damage she's caused isn't fixable
Every twenty seconds you repeat her name
But when it comes to me you don't care
If I'm alive or dead

So objection, I don't wanna be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother

Objection, I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way, I've got to get away

Next to her cheap silicone I look minimal
That's why in front of your eyes, I'm invisible
But you gotta know small things also count
You better put your feet on the ground
And see what it's about

So objection, I don't wanna be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother

I'm tied to the angles of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way, no, no, no, no

I wish there was a chance for you and me
I wish you couldn't find a place to be
Away from here

This is pathetic and sardonic
It's sadistic and psychotic
Tango is not for three
Was never meant to be
But you can try it, rehearse it
Or train like a horse
But don't you count on me
Oh, don't you count on me, boy

Objection, I don't wanna the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother

Objection, I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way, I've got to get away

Get away
Get away, eh, eh, eh
Get away
Ah-ha-ho, ah-ha-ho, aha
Ah-ha-ho, ah-ha-ho, aha
Uh-uh
I'm falling apart in your hands again
Get away
I'm falling apart in your hands again
Get away
Get away

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Shakira's song Objection express frustration and desperation in a love triangle. The song begins by acknowledging the seductive qualities of the third person involved in the triangle, but also highlights the damaging effects they have had on the main character's relationship with their partner. Despite this, the partner seems to be fixated on the third person and neglects their partner's well-being.


The chorus contains the main message of the song - the singer objects to being the exception to their partner's infatuation with the third person. They refuse to be ignored and mistreated in their relationship, and they are tired of feeling like they are falling apart in their partner's hands again and again. The singer wishes they could escape the situation and have a chance for a genuine connection with their partner without interference.


The song's bridge emphasizes the impossibility and absurdity of the situation. Tango is meant for two, and trying to include a third party is doomed to fail. The singer is not willing to participate in this dance any longer and asserts their independence from this toxic love triangle.


Line by Line Meaning

It's not her fault that she's so irresistible
She can't help being attractive


But all the damage she's caused isn't fixable
Her actions have caused irreversible harm


Every twenty seconds you repeat her name
You can't stop thinking about her


But when it comes to me you don't care
Your feelings for me are not genuine


If I'm alive or dead
You don't show concern for my well-being


So objection, I don't wanna the be the exception
I object to being treated differently than others


To get a bit of your attention
Just to get your notice


I love you for free and I'm not your mother
I don't expect anything in return for my love, I'm not controlling


But you don't even bother
You don't put in any effort


Objection, I'm tired of this triangle
I object to being a part of this complicated situation


Got dizzy dancing tango
This is all becoming too much


I'm falling apart in your hands again
You're hurting me and I can't take it


No way, I've got to get away
I need to leave and get out of this toxic situation


Next to her cheap silicone I look minimal
Compared to her, I seem unimportant and insignificant


That's why in front of your eyes, I'm invisible
You don't see me or care about me


But you gotta know small things also count
Even the little things matter


You better put your feet on the ground
You need to be more realistic


And see what it's about
Understand the situation


I wish there was a chance for you and me
I wish we could make this work


I wish you couldn't find a place to be
I wish you couldn't be with her


Away from here
Away from this situation


This is pathetic and sardonic
This situation is ridiculous and sarcastic


It's sadistic and psychotic
It's cruel and insane


Tango is not for three
This situation is complicated and wrong


Was never meant to be
It's not natural or healthy


But you can try it
You can keep doing this if you want


Rehearse it
Practice it


Or train like a horse
Work at it like a laborer


But don't you count on me
Don't rely on me to be a part of this


Oh, don't you count on me, boy
I won't be a part of this


Get away, get away
Leave this situation


Eh, eh, eh, get away
Go, go, go


Ah-ha-ho, ah-ha-ho, aha
Background vocals


Ah-ha-ho, ah-ha-ho, aha
Background vocals


Uh-uh
Negative response


I'm falling apart in your hands again
You're hurting me again

This is my favorite Shakira song ever. I like the way she mixes pop, rock, tango and a fast verse. She’s a genius

Dude... this is dog shit, she used to make good music, like "donde estan los ladrones" this crap simply grabs music that already existed, the battery is boring only playing the same 3 notes and guitar only plays like 5 notes, the lyrics are simply stupid.

@griseldafraire6510

And she adds jazz and a little ballet

She is a popstar with the spirit of a rockstar. A complete musician.
