Señorita
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

The lyrics of the song Señorita by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are about a passionate love affair between two people who are drawn to each other despite knowing that they shouldn't be. The song begins with Mendes admitting that he loves it when the girl he is seeing calls him "señorita" and how every touch they share sends him into a frenzy. At the same time, he wishes that he could pretend he doesn't need her, but he can't because he is so drawn to her.


Mendes goes on to describe how they met in Miami, and how they danced for hours in the sand on the beach. He talks about the tequila sunrise and how her body fit perfectly in his hands. Despite knowing that they shouldn't be together, Mendes can't seem to resist her and admits that he should be running.


The chorus repeats, showing how the desire between them is too strong to deny. The lyrics then describe how they are locked in the hotel together, and how the girl claims that they are just friends. However, the passion they share is undeniable, and Mendes admits that he is hooked on her tongue and that her kisses are deadly. The song ends with Mendes admitting that he has been coming for her all along and that he will continue to do so, even though he knows he should be running from her.
