Pólvora
Moderatto Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yo sé muy bien que esa chamaca es un peligro mortal
Que problemas y disgustos no me van a faltar
Mas no me importan los problemas que me pueda buscar
Si es pura dinamita que a mí me hace explotar

Pólvora le dicen y con mucha razón
Pues al que pasa por ella siempre lo hace volar
Si algún día tú sales con ella te podrás convencer
Que chamaca más rebelde no te habrás de encontrar
Si una vuelta das en coche, ella te convencerá
Que no hay quien la contenga si te empieza a besar

Pólvora le dicen y con mucha razón
Pues al que pasa por ella siempre lo hace volar

¡Pólvora!

Yo sé muy bien que esa chamaca es un peligro mortal
Que problemas y disgustos no me van a faltar
Mas no me importan los problemas que me pueda buscar
Si es pura dinamita que a mí me hace explotar

Pólvora le dicen y con mucha razón
Pues al que pasa por ella siempre lo hace volar
¡Pólvora!

Si algún día tú sales con ella te podrás convencer
Qué chamaca más rebelde no te habrás de encontrar
Si una vuelta das en coche, ella te convencerá
Que no hay quien la contenga si te empieza a besar

Pólvora le dicen y con mucha razón




Pues al que pasa por ella siempre lo hace volar
¡Pólvora!

The singer acknowledges that being involved with her will bring nothing but problems and disagreements, but they are willing to embrace the chaos that comes with her volatile nature. The metaphor of "pólvora" or gunpowder is used to illustrate the explosive and unpredictable effect she has on those around her, emphasizing that anyone who crosses paths with her is bound to be blown away.


The repeated refrain of "Pólvora le dicen y con mucha razón" reinforces the idea that the girl in question is indeed like gunpowder – highly combustible and capable of causing immense destruction. This imagery paints a vivid picture of the intense and uncontrollable allure she possesses, highlighting the irresistible yet dangerous allure that draws people towards her, despite the inevitable consequences.


The lyrics caution the listener about the rebellious and wild nature of this girl, suggesting that if one were to go out with her, they would be faced with a level of defiance and passion unlike anything they have experienced before.
