Loca (loca)
No te pongas bruto
Loca
Que te la bebe
Dance or die
Loca (loca)
(Ra-ta-ta)
Él está por mí y por ti borró
Y eso que tú tienes to', y yo ni un kikí
Él está por mí, y por ti borró (borró)
Y eso que tú tienes to', y yo ni un kikí

Ella se hace la bruta pa' cotizarse
Conmigo en frente, ella se hace la gata en celo contigo
Te cotorrea el oído pa' tenerte en alta
Ella muere por ti, tú por mí es que matas
Sigo tranquila como una paloma de e'quina
Mientras ella se pasa en su BM al lado mío
Yo de aquí no me voy, lo que está pa' mí
Ninguna va poder quitármelo de un tirón

Yo soy loca con mi tigre, loca, loca, loca
Soy loca con mi tigre, loca, loca, loca
Soy loca con mi tigre (loca, loca, loca)
Soy loca con mi tigre (loca, loca, loca)

Él está por mí, y por ti borró (borró)
Y eso que tú tienes to', y yo ni un kikí
Él está por mí, y por ti borró (borró)
Y eso que tú tienes to', y yo ni un kikí

Mientras ella te complace con todos tus caprichos
Yo te llevo al malecón por un caminito
Me dicen que tu novia anda con un rifle
Porque me vio bailando mambo pa' ti, ¿qué no lo permite?
Yo no tengo la culpa de que tú te enamore'
Mientras él te compra flores yo compro cond- uh!
Yo soy loca con mi tigre
Cuantas más rayas mejor y mira eso es lo que dicen (shh)

Yo soy loca con mi tigre, loca, loca, loca
Soy loca con mi tigre, loca, loca, loca
Soy loca con mi tigre (loca, loca, loca)
Soy loca con mi tigre

¡Dios mío! (ah! Ah!)
Se colán lo' ra-ta-ta
No te pongas bruto
Que te la bebe
Loca (loca)
Loca

Él está por mí, y por ti borró (borró)
Y eso que tú tienes to', y yo ni un kikí

Yo soy loca con mi tigre, loca, loca, loca
Soy loca con mi tigre, loca, loca, loca

Overall Meaning

"Loca" is a reggaeton-inspired song by Colombian singer Shakira, released in 2010 as the lead single from her ninth studio album "Sale el Sol". The song talks about a girl who is crazy about her lover and is ready to do anything for him. The chorus "Loca, loca, loca" refers to the girl's craziness and also serves as a call to action for the listener to dance or die.


In the first two verses, Shakira sings about a guy who has chosen her over another girl, despite the fact that the other girl has more to offer. She believes that the other girl is trying too hard to impress him and is being fake in front of Shakira. Shakira is confident in herself and is not threatened by the other girl's attempts to compete with her for the guy's attention. She is also not interested in material possessions and doesn't care that the other girl is driving a fancy car.


The chorus is repeated twice after each verse, emphasizing Shakira's craziness and desire to be with her "tigre" (tiger). In the bridge, Shakira sings about how her love for her "tigre" drives her to do unconventional and taboo things, such as dancing mambo in front of his girlfriend. She also hints at a sexual relationship with the lines "Cuantas más rayas mejor y mira eso es lo que dicen (shh)" which translates to "The more lines, the better, and that's what they say (shh)".


Overall, "Loca" is a catchy dance song that explores themes of jealousy, competition, and unconventional love.
