Spanish & English

Las manos arriba cintura sola
Da media vuelta danza kuduro
No te canses ahora que esto solo empieza
Mueve la cabeza danza kuduro

Las manos arriba cintura sola
Da media vuelta danza kuduro
No te canses ahora que esto solo empieza
Mueve la cabeza danza kuduro

Quien puede domar la fuerza del mar
Que se mete por tus venas
Lo caliente del sol que se te metio
Y no te deja quieta nena

Quien puede parar eso que al bailar
Descontrola tus cadernas sexy
Y ese fuego que quema por dentro
Y lento te convierte en fiera

Con las manos arriba cintura sola
Da media vuelta y sacude duro
No te quites ahora que esto solo empieza
Mueve la cabeza y sacude duro

(Portugués)

Balançar què uma loucura

Balançar què uma loucura
Morena vem o meu lado
Ninguem vai ficar parado oh

Oi oi oi, oi oi oi
E para quebrar kuduro, vamos dançar kuduro

Seja morena o loira, vem balançar kuduro

Hands up hips only
turn around dance “kuduro”
Don’t get tired now that this only begins
Move the head dance “kuduro”

Hands up hips only
Half turn dance “kuduro”
Don’t get tired now that this only begins
Move the head dance “kuduro”

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

Who can stop that as you dance
Uncontrolled your sexy hips
And that fire that burns inside
And slowly converts you into beast

With Hands up hips only
Half turn and shake hard
Don’t take off now that this only begins
Move the head and shake hard

(Portugués)

To swing like crazy

Nobody will stand still

To swing that crazy
Brunette come to my side
Nobody will stand still

Oi oi oi, oi oi oi
And to break kuduro, we’re going to dance kuduro
Oi oi oi, oi oi oi
Whether brunette or blonde, come swing
Oi oi oi

Half turn dance “kuduro”
Don’t get tired now that this only begins
Move the head dance “kuduro”

Hands up hips only
Half turn dance “kuduro”
Don’t get tired now that this only begins
Move the head dance “kuduro”
