Rabiosa
If you don't get enough I'll make it double
I got my boy now in big, big trouble
You know I want you atracao' ahí (ratata)

You've got a lot of that sex appeal
Don't play around because I'm for real
You see that road isn't meant for me
You know I want you amarrao' aquí

Oye papi
If you like it mocha
Come get a little closer
And bite me en la boca

Oye papi
If you like it mocha
Come get a little closer
And bite me en la boca

Rabiosa, rabiosa
Closer, come pull me closer
Yo soy rabiosa, rabiosa
Closer, come pull me closer

Rabiosa
If you don't get enough I'll make it double
I'm tryin to have fun and I love you
But you want me atracao ahí (ratata)
You got a lot of sex appeal
Now baby I'm for real
You see that road isn't meant for me
You know I want you amarrao' aquí

Oye mami
Let me get that mocha
Come get a little closer
And bite me en la boca

Oye papi
If you like it mocha
Come get a little closer
And bite me en la boca

Oye mami
I like your mocha
Come get a little closer
And bite me en la boca

Oye papi
If you like it mocha
Come get a little closer
And bite me en la boca

Rabiosa, rabiosa

Yo soy rabiosa, rabiosa
Closer, come pull me closer

Oye mami

Come get a little closer
And bite me en la boca

Oye papi
If you like it mocha




Come get a little closer
And bite me en la boca

Overall Meaning

The song "Rabiosa" by Shakira is a sexually charged number that talks about the singer's desires and her longing for a man who seems to be playing hard to get. The lyrics suggest that Shakira is willing to do anything to get the man interested, even if that means doubling up on her efforts. The repeated refrain of "If you don't get enough I'll make it double" underscores this point, as does the reference to the man being in "big, big trouble" now that Shakira is involved.


Throughout the song, Shakira emphasizes her own sex appeal and urges the man to come closer and bite her en la boca. She refers to him as "papi" and "mami", suggesting a certain familiarity and intimacy between them. The chorus repeats the word "rabiosa", which translates to "ferocious" or "angry" in English. This could be interpreted as a nod to the passion and intensity of the attraction between the two.


Overall, "Rabiosa" is a steamy, playful song that showcases Shakira's sensuality and her ability to deliver a catchy, upbeat tune that gets people moving.

Ésta canción está a muy poco de cumplir dos décadas y se siente como si fuera de ayer. No me cansaré de oírla, ni hoy, ni mañana, ni nunca.

@CarlosLima-dz3ks

Sabes cuántos son dos décadas?

@dashwissball2295

@@CarlosLima-dz3ks Si, el video cumplió 13 años, eso quiere decir que ya casi cumple una década y media, pero siento que el tiempo se va muy rápido, y para mi, 7 años será muy poco, por eso lo puse.
Una disculpa si el comentario no se entendió muy bien.
