Ladies up in here tonight 
No fighting, no fighting 
We got the refugees up in here 
No fighting, no fighting

Verse
Bbm                                 Gb
I never really knew that she could dance like this 
Ab                       Fm
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Gb                        
Como se llama,   
Ab
bonita,    
Bbm
mi casa, su casa
- Shakira, Shakira - 

- same chord progression throughout the song -
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 

And I'm on tonight 
You know my hips don't lie 
And I'm starting to feel it's right 
All the attraction, the tension 
Don't you see baby, this is perfection 

Bridge
Bbm
Hey Girl, I can see your body moving 
And it's driving me crazy 
And I didn't 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 taking it 

Verse 2
Bbm                                 Gb
I never really knew that she could dance like this 
Ab                       Fm
She makes a man want to speak Spanish
Gb                        
Como se llama,   
Ab

Bbm
mi casa, su casa

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 

And I'm on tonight 
You know my hips don't lie 
And I am starting to feel you boy 
Come on let's go, real slow 
Don't you see baby asi es perfecto 

Oh I know I am on tonight my hips don't lie 
And I'm starting to feel it's right 
All the attraction, the tension 
Don't you see baby, this is perfection 
Shakira, Shakira 

Bridge
Bbm
Oh boy, I can see your body moving 
Half animal, half man 
I don't, don't really know what I'm doing 
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 

Bbm		Ab
Baila en la calle de noche 
		Bbm
Baila en la calle de dia 
		Ab
Baila en la calle de noche 
		Bbm
Baila en la calle de dia

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 

Bridge
Bbm
Señorita, feel the conga, let me see you 
move like you come from Colombia 
Bbm
Mira en Barranquilla se baila asi, say it! 
Mira en Barranquilla se baila asi 

Yeah 
She's so xxxx 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 
No more we do snatch ropes 
Refugees run the seas 'cause we own our 
own boats 

Verse
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'm on tonight and my 
hips don't lie 
And I'm starting to feel it's right 
The attraction, the tension 
Baby, like this is perfection 

Outro - same as Intro -
