Lyrics

Hips Don`t Lie (Shakira feat. Wyclef Jean)

Wyclef:

Ladies up in here tonight

No fighting, no fighting

We got the refugees up in here

No fighting. No fighting

Shakira, Shakira

I never really knew that she could dance like this

She makes a man want to sing Spanish

Cómo se llama? si, bonita, si, mi casa, su casa

Shakira, Shakira

Shakira:

Oh baby when you talk like that

You make a woman go mad

So be wise and keep on

Reading the signs of my body

I`m on tonight you know my hips don`t lie,

I`m starting to feel it`s right

All the attraction, the tension

Don`t you see baby, this is perfection

Wyclef:

Hey girl, I can see your body moving

And it`s driving me crazy

And I did not have the slightest idea

Until I saw you dancing

And when you walk up on the dance floor

Nobody cannot ignore the way you move your body, girl

And everything so unexpected - the way you right and left it

So you can keep on shaking it

I never really knew that she could dance like this

She makes a man want to sing Spanish

Cómo se llama? si, bonita, si, mi casa, su casa

Shakira, Shakira

Shakira:

Oh baby when you talk like that

You make a woman go mad

So be wise and keep on

Reading the signs of my body

I`m on tonight

You know my hips don`t lie

And I am starting to feel you boy

Come on lets go, real slow

Don`t you see baby sí es perfecto

You know I am on tonight my hips don`t lie

And I am starting to feel it`s right

All the attraction, the tension

Don`t you see baby, this is perfection

Shakira, Shakira

Oh boy, I can see your body moving

Half animal, half man

I don`t, don`t really know what I`m doin`

But you seem to have a plan

My will and self restraint

Have come to fail now, fail now

See, I am doing what I can, but I can`t so you know

That`s a bit too hard to explain

Chorus:

Baila en la calle de noche

Baila en la calle de día

Shakira:

Baila en la calle de noche

Baila en la calle

Wyclef:

I never really knew that she could dance like this

She makes a man want to sing Spanish

Cómo se llama? si, bonita, si, mi casa, su casa

Shakira, Shakira

Shakira:

Oh baby when you talk like that

You know you got me hypnotized

So be wise and keep on

Reading the signs of my body

Wyclef:

Señorita, feel the conga, let me see you move like you come from Colombia

Wyclef:

ADC!

Shakira:

Mi vida en Barranquilla se baila así, sí!

Wyclef:

En Barranquilla se baila así

Wyclef`s rap:

Yeah

She`s so sexy every man`s fantasy a refugee like me back with the Fugees from a 3rd world country

I go back like when `pac carried crates for Humpty Humpty

I need a whole club dizzy

Why the CIA wanna watch us?

Colombians and Haitians

I ain`t guilty, it`s a musical transaction

Boo-boop-so-boop

No more do we snatch ropes

Refugees run the seas `cause we own our own boats

Shakira:

I`m on tonight, my hips don`t lie

And I`m starting to feel you boy

Come on let`s go, real slow

Baby, like this is perfecto

Oh, you know I am on tonight, my hips don`t lie and I`m starting to feel it`s right

The attraction, the tension

Baby, like this is perfection

Wyclef:

No fighting

Shakira:

No fighting
