Ok, so what are the words to that Shakira song???

That Shakira song is on the radio all the time yet I can't make out most of the words to the song and it's driving me nuts. Could someone please post the lyrics for me before I go crazy listening to it?

Thanks.

Which one? Whenever, Wherever or Underneath Your Clothes? Google is a wonderful thing.

Whenever, Wherever
Lucky you were born
That far away so
So we could both
Make fun of distance
Lucky that I love
A foreign land for
The lucky fact
Of your existence
Baby I would climb
The Andes solely
To count the freckles
On your body
Never could imagine
There were only
Too many ways to
Love somebody
Lo ro lo le lo le
Lo ro lo le lo le
Can't you see
I'm at your feet

Whenever, wherever
We'll learn to
Be together
I'll be there and
You'll be near
And that's the
Deal my dear
They're over
You're under
You'll never have
To wonder
We can always
Play by ear
But that's the
Deal my dear

Lucky that my lips
Not only mumble
They spill kisses
Like a fountain
Lucky that my breasts
Are small and humble
So you don't confuse them
With mountains
Lucky I have strong legs
Like my mother
To run for cover
When I need it
And these two eyes
Are for no other
The day you leave
We'll cry a river

Lo ro lo le lo le
Lo ro lo le lo le

At your feet
I'm at your feet

Whenever, wherever
We're meant to
Be together
I'll be there and
You'll be near
And that's the
Deal my dear
They're over
You're under
You'll never have
To wonder
We can always
Play by ear
But that's the
Deal my dear

Lo ro lo le lo le
Lo ro lo le lo le

We can fly
Say it again

Lo ro lo le lo le lo le

Tell me
One more time
That you'll live
Lost in my eyes

Whenever, wherever
We'll learn to
Be together
I'll be there and
You'll be near
And that's the
Deal my dear
They're over
You're under
You've got me
Head over heels
There's nothing
Left to fear
If you really feel
The way I feel

Whenever, wherever
We're meant to
Be together
I'll be there and
You'll be near
And that's the
Deal my dear
They're over
You're under
You've got me
Head over heels
There's nothing
Left to fear
If you really feel
The way I feel

Underneath Your Clothes
You're a song
Written by the hands of God
Don't get me wrong 'cuz
This might sound to you a bit odd
But you own the place
Where all my thoughts go hiding
And right under your clothes
Is where I find them
Underneath your clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And all the things I deserve
For being such a good girl honey

Because of you
I forgot the smart ways to lie
Because of you
I'm running out of reasons to cry
When my friends are gone
When my parties over
We will still belong to each other

Underneath your clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And all the things I deserve
For being such a good girl honey

Underneath your clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And all the things I deserve
For being such a good girl honey

I love you more than all that's on the planet
Movin' talkin' walkin' breathing
You know it's true
Oh baby it's so funny
You almost don't believe it
As every voice is hanging from the silence
Lamps are hanging from the ceiling
Like a lady tied to her manners
I'm tied up to this feeling

Underneath your clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And all the things I deserve
For being such a good girl honey

Underneath your clothes
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And all the things I deserve
For being such a good girl honey

That underneath your clothes song has the dumbest lyrics I have read in a long time. But Shakira is mad hot, so who cares?

Thanks Andy!!! It was for Underneath Your Clothes. I didn't know she had a second song out. Song's on the radio right now as I type and I can finally make out a friggen word or two now...

And I agree that those are the dumbest lyrics. I thought it was something about sex coz of the title but what do I know? What does being a good girl have to do with anything in this song?

Oh well. She's an attractive girl so I suppose that's why she's popular. At least she's better looking than those twins Christina Aguillera and Brittany Spears. Why do they have different last names if they're twins anyway?

Heh. Whenever, Wherever was the first single off her Laundry Service album. My wife is highly annoyed by her. I actually heard a third song of her's on the radio today, here's the lyrics for it.

Objection (Tango)
Words and Music by: Shakira


It's not her fault that she's so irresistible
But all the damage she's caused isn't fixable
Every twenty seconds you repeat her name
But when it comes to me you don't care
If I'm alive or dead

So objection I don't wanna be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother

Objection I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way I've got to get away

Next to her cheap silicon I look minimal
That's why in front of your eyes I'm invisible
But you gotta know small things also count
You better put your feet on the ground
And see what it's about

Objection I don't wanna be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother

Objection I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way I've got to get away

I wish there was a chance for you and me
I wish you couldn't find a place to be
Away from here

This is pathetic and sardonic
It's sadistic and psychotic
Tango is not for three
Was never meant to be

But you can try it
Rehearse it
Or train like a horse
But don't you count on me
Don't you count on me boy

Objection I don't wanna be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
And you don't even bother

Objection I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way I've got to get away

What is up with her and her b**bs???

Wherever Whenever:

Lucky that my breasts
Are small and humble
So you don't confuse them
With mountains

Objection (Tango):

Next to her cheap silicon I look minimal
That's why in front of your eyes I'm invisible
But you gotta know small things also count

Heh Heh. I'm just sayin'!

The category for today's Final Jeopardy is Shakira.

And the Final Jeopardy question is: Shakira... What Is With Her?

Contestants, you'll have 30 seconds to answer. Good luck!
