Romeo Santos, “Necio”

I must admit that I have a soft spot for this Bachata song, “Necio” (Foolish). It is not more of the same but at a higher level, where pop music becomes great art: music, lyrics, the voice of Romeo Santos are so tantalizing to dance to. The shifts in the rhythm are quite a challenge for dancers at intermediate level.

At the end you have three videos: With lyrics in Spanish/English, lyrics in Spanish only, and the official video.

Necio Foolish
_ _
Me dirán “¡Que obsesionado!”, con cerebro imaginario They will say to me, “How obsessed!” With an imaginary brain
Y Dosis de locura, veo cosas absurdas. and a dose of insanity, I see absurd things.
Guárdame el secreto: Keep my secret:
en mi hombro hay un diablito que me agobia. on my shoulder there is a little devil that pesters me.
Me impulso a mandarte flores, que te llame por las noches, I’m impelled to send you flowers, call you in the evenings,
Y que viole las reglas, aunque seas ajena, que no se me ocurra and violate the rules. Even though you are someone else’s, it does not occur to me
Aceptarte ni un segundo como amiga. to accept you as a friend for even a second.

Necio porque tienes dueño, y yo soy un loco hablando Foolish because you are taken, and I am a lunatic talking
con reflejos que no están to reflections that aren’t there.
Necio porque no eres mía, mi fruta prohibida Foolish because you aren’t mine, my forbidden fruit
Me despierta el deseo de probar The desire to try awakens me
Sencillamente usted amada mía me pone necio Simply put, you are my beloved who makes me a fool.
Es irracional este sentimiento que no detengo, This feeling that doesn’t stop is irrational,
me va consumiendo. it is consuming me.
Sencillamente usted amada mía me vuelve necio Simply put, you are my beloved who turns me into a fool.
Mi amor alucinante se lanzó al océano por terco. My hallucinatory love was thrown into the ocean for it was stubborn.
Y me estoy hundiendo. And I am sinking.

Oye tu feeling mami… Hey your feeling mami…

Un amor sin disciplina, calibrado, impaciente A love without discipline, calibration, impatient
Y Vaga por tus calles como un imprudente And wanders your streets, recklessly,
Viendo cada paso que tu des sin un motivo watching every step that you take without a motive
Amada mía… My Beloved…

Necio porque tienes dueño, y yo soy un loco hablando Foolish because you are taken, and I am a lunatic talking
con reflejos que no están. to reflections that aren’t there.
Necio porque no eres mía, mi fruta prohibida Foolish because you aren’t mine, my forbidden fruit
Me despierta el deseo de probar The desire to try awakens me
Sencillamente usted amada mía me pone necio. Simply put, you are my beloved who makes me a fool.
Es irracional este sentimiento que no detengo, This feeling that doesn’t stop is irrational,
me va consumiendo. it is consuming me.
Sencillamente usted amada mía me vuelve necio Simply put, you are my beloved who turns me into a fool.
Mi amor alucinante se lanzó al océano por terco My hallucinatory love was thrown into the ocean for it was stubborn.
Y me estoy hundiendo. And I am sinking.
