don omar – danza kuduro lyrics english

dance the Kuduro
Lucenzo
The king

Your hand up
[move your] waist only
Turn halfway around
dance the Kuduro
Don’t get tired now
this is only just beginning
Move your head
dance the Kuduro

(x2)

Who can tame
the strength of the ocean
That gets in your veins
The heat of the sun
that got into you
And doesn’t let you stand still
baby

Who can stop
that when dancing
[with] your hips out of control
(sexy)
And that fire that burns
inside
and slowly converts you
into a wild beast

With your hand up
[move your] waist only
Turn halfway around
and shake hard
Don’t take off [quit] now
this is only just beginning
Move your head
and shake hard

(Portuguese)
To swing like a crazy person
Brunette/dark one
come to my side
Nobody will stand still
I want to see [you] move

To swing like a crazy person
Brunette come to my side
Nobody will stand still oh

Oi oi oi, oi oi oi
And to break Kuduro,
Let’s go dance Kuduro

Oi oi oi, oi oi oi
Whether brunette or blonde,

Your hand up
[move your] waist only
Turn halfway around

Don’t get tired now
this is only just beginning
Move your head
