señorita
Camila Cabello & Shawn Mendes Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I love it when you call me señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn't need ya
But every touch is ooh, la-la-la
It's true, la-la-la
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you keep me coming for ya

Land in Miami
The air was hot from summer rain
Sweat dripping off me
Before I even knew her name, la-la-la
It felt like ooh, la-la-la
Yeah, no
Sapphire moonlight
We danced for hours in the sand
Tequila sunrise
Her body fit right in my hands, la-la-la
It felt like ooh, la-la-la, yeah

I love it when you call me señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn't need ya
But every touch is ooh, la-la-la
It's true, la-la-la
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you know I love it when you call me señorita
I wish it wasn't so damn hard to leave ya
But every touch is ooh, la-la-la
It's true, la-la-la
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you keep me coming for ya

Locked in the hotel
There's just some things that never change
You say we're just friends
But friends don't know the way you taste, la-la-la
'Cause you know it's been a long time coming
Don't you let me fall, oh

Ooh, when your lips undress me
Hooked on your tongue
Ooh, love, your kiss is deadly
Don't stop

I love it when you call me señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn't need ya
But every touch is ooh, la-la-la
It's true, la-la-la
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you know I love it when you call me señorita
I wish it wasn't so damn hard to leave ya
But every touch is ooh, la-la-la
It's true, la-la-la (true, la-la)
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you keep me coming for ya

All along I've been coming for ya (for ya)
And I hope it meant something to ya (ooh)
Call my name, I'll be coming for ya
Coming for ya, coming for ya, coming for ya

For ya
For ya (oh, she loves it when I call)
For ya





Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you keep me coming for ya

Overall Meaning

"Señorita" is a steamy duet between Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes that talks about the irresistible attraction between the two. The song exhibits the power of sexual tension without explicitly crossing the boundary into being graphic. The opening of the song shows that Mendes loves being called "señorita" by Cabello, but wishes he could pretend he does not need her. However, Cabello's touch is enough to evoke a sense of desire to which Mendes cannot resist. He wishes he could run from her, but instead, she keeps him coming back for more.


The bridge suggests that the passion between the two is long-awaited, as Mendes has been coming for her all along. Additionally, the lyrics suggest that Cabello and Mendes are not just friends but have something more than friendly. The song ends with Mendes admitting that Cabello constantly keeps him coming for more, and he should be running, but he can't. Rather, he is eager to indulge in her seductive appeal.
