Despacito lyrics in english Sespacito lyrics in spanish
Sí, sabes que ya llevo un rato mirándote

Tengo que bailar contigo hoy
Vi que tu mirada ya estaba llamándome
Muéstrame el camino que yo voy (Oh)Tú, tú eres el imán y yo soy el metal

Me voy acercando y voy armando el plan

Solo con pensarlo se acelera el pulso
(Oh yeah)Ya, ya me está gustando más de lo normal
Todos mis sentidos van pidiendo más
Esto hay que tomarlo sin ningún apuroDespacito
Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito
Deja que te diga cosas al oído
Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigoDespacito
Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito
Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto
Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito (sube, sube, sube)
(Sube, sube)

Quiero ver bailar tu pelo
Quiero ser tu ritmo
que le enseñes a mi boca
tus lugares favoritos (favoritos, favoritos baby)

Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro
hasta provocar tus gritos
y que olvides tu apellido

Si te pido un beso ven dámelo
Yo sé que estás pensándolo
Llevo tiempo intentándolo
Mami, esto es dando y dándolo
Sabes que tu corazón conmigo te hace bom, bom
Sabes que esa beba está buscando de mi bom, bom
Ven prueba de mi boca para ver cómo te sabe
Quiero, quiero, quiero ver cuánto amor a ti te cabe
Yo no tengo prisa, yo me quiero dar el viaje

Empecemos lento, después salvaje

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito

Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito

Cuando tú me besas con esa destreza
Veo que eres malicia con delicadeza

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito

Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito

Y es que esa belleza es un rompecabezas
Pero pa’ montarlo aquí tengo la pieza

Despacito
Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito
Deja que te diga cosas al oído
Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo

Despacito
Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito
Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto
Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito (sube, sube, sube)
(Sube, sube)

Quiero ver bailar tu pelo
Quiero ser tu ritmo
que le enseñes a mi boca
tus lugares favoritos (favoritos, favoritos baby)

Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro
Hasta provocar tus gritos
Y que olvides tu apellido

Despacito
Vamos a hacerlo en una playa en Puerto Rico
Hasta que las olas griten “¡ay, bendito!”
Para que mi sello se quede contigo

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito

Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito

que le enseñes a mi boca
tus lugares favoritos (favoritos, favoritos baby)

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito

Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito

Hasta provocar tus gritos
Y que olvides tu apellido

Despacito

Yes, you know that it’s already been a while that I’ve been looking at you
I have to dance with you today
I saw that your look was already calling me
Show me the way that I go (Oh)You, you are the magnet and I am the metal
I’m getting closer and I’m putting together the plan
Just by thinking it my pulse accelerates (Oh yeah)Already, I’m liking it more than usual
All my senses are asking for more
This one must take it without any troubleNice and slow
I want to breathe your neck extra slowly
Let me tell you things in your ear
So that you remember if you’re not with meNice and slow
I want to undress by extra slow kisses
Sign on the walls of your labyrinth
And make your whole body a manuscript (get up, get up, get up)
(Get up, get up)

I want to see your hair dance
I want to be your rhythm
that you teach to my mouth
your favorite places (favorites, favorites baby)

Let me surpass your danger zones
Until bringing on your screams
And that you forget your last name

If I ask you for a kiss, come give it to me
I know that you are thinking it
It’s been a while I’ve been trying it
Mommy, this is giving and giving it
You know your heart with me makes you boom, boom
You know that baby is looking for my boom, boom
Come try from my mouth to see how it knows you
I want, I want, I want to see how much love it fits you
I’m not in a hurry, I want to give myself to the trip
Let’s start slow, then wild

baby step by baby step, smooth, nice and smooth
We are sticking ourselves together, little bit by little bit
When you kiss me with that skill
I see you are wickedness with delicacy

baby step by baby step, smooth, nice and smooth
We are sticking ourselves together, little bit by little bit
And it’s that beauty is a puzzle
But to assemble it here I have the piece

Nice and slow
I want to breathe your neck extra slowly
Let me tell you things in your ear
So that you remember if you’re not with me

Nice and slow
I want to undress by extra slow kisses
Sign on the walls of your labyrinth
And make your whole body a manuscript (get up, get up, get up)
(Get up, get up)

I want to see your hair dance
I want to be your rhythm
that you teach to my mouth
your favorite places (favorites, favorites baby)

Let me surpass your danger zones
Until bringing on your screams
And that you forget your last name

Nice and slow
We’re going yo do it on a beach in Puerto Rico
Until the waves shout “oh my God!”
So that my stamp stays with you

baby step by baby step, smooth, nice and smooth
We are sticking ourselves together, little bit by little bit
that you teach to my mouth
your favorite places (favorites, favorites baby)

baby step by baby step, smooth, nice and smooth
We are sticking ourselves together, little bit by little bit
Until bringing on your screams
And that you forget your last name

Nice and slow
