Romeo Santos, “La Diabla”

When I hear the card shuffling at the very start of the introduction to the song, making me recognize it as “La Diabla”, I just say: “Are you ready to play?”, when I ask for a dance.

After the table with lyrics in Spanish and English side by side, three videos: one with Spanish/English lyrics, one with Spanish lyrics only, and the official video at the very end.

La Diabla She devil
Are you ready to play? Are you ready to play?
_ _
Aposte los sentimientos I bet on my feelings
y jugue a fuego lento con amor and I played with fire, with love
me enfrete a la competencia I faced the competition
olvidando sin dolencia hay forgettin wihtout weakness ohh
fue mi error it was my mistake
_
por complejo de bigote Because of my ignorance
fui llevando este derroche de mal a peor… I Lead this wastefulness from bad to worse…
mi alma en la ruleta russa my soul in the russian roulette
mi rival que es tan astuta asi se aprovecho my rival who is so clever/cunning, so she took advantage of me
y como ven no soy un angel con buena intuiciòn and as you can see I’m not a angel with a good intuition
me lance a quema ropa y ella me vencio… I gave myself completely and she won
_
Coro) Choir)
Perdi… jugue con una diabla que es experta I lost… I played with a devil who is an expert
en esos juegos del amor in those games of love
y perdi… sus fichas y barajas and I lost… her strategies don’t fail her
no le fallan mas no tiene compacion furthermore she feels sorry for me
perdi… no fui el primero ni ultimo que pierde I lost… I wasn’t the first nor the last who lose
y si ella retornara y se conmueve… and if she returns and is moved…
la reto a otro duelo I’ll challenge her to another duel
y en la revancha vuelvo y pierdo el corazon and in the revenge I lose the heart again

(escucha las palabras woa woa woa (listen to the words woa woa

The king stays king… yes sir The king stays king… yes sir
