"Un Poco De Amor"

By Shakira

Song suggestion by The J.A.M

[...unWARP!!!]

Good evening.

This was *another* song I heard a while back, which might also reflect Foxglove’s feelings for Dale. This one reflects her frustration at his lack of response from her initial advances. Hope you like it.

This one also has a literal/linear/word-for-word translation (except where colloquialisms are used). Watch out for the verbs in the reflexive mood (to myself, to yourself), they don’t translate too well.

Until next time, remember:

I AM THE J.A.M.

Good evening.

[WARP!!!]

"Un Poco De Amor"

 

Hoy es un día de aquellos

Today is one day of those

 

En que miro hacia el cielo

In that [I]look toward the sky

 

Tratando de descifrar

Trying to decipher

 

El que estés

The that [you]are

 

De vez en cuando lejos

From time in when far [from time to time]

 

Y de vez en cuando cerca.

And from time in when near.

 

Unas veces subir, y otras caer.

Some times to-ascend, and others to-fall.

 

Y yo cuando tu te me acercas

And I when you [to]me approach

 

No respondo de mis actos

Not [I]respond of my actions

 

Siento que aquí voy. . .

[I]feel that here [I]go. . .

 

De odiarte a quererte

From hating-you to wanting-you

 

De principio a fin.

From beginning to end.

 

 

Buscando un poco de amor,

Searching[for] a little[bit] of love,

 

Buscando un poco de amor.

Searching[for] a little[bit] of love.

 

 

Hay cosas en la vida

[There]are things in the life

 

En que no encuentras salida,

In that not you-find exit,

 

Y ante tus ojos se cierra el telón,

And before your eyes itself closes the curtain,

 

Y tapas la boquilla

And [you]cover the nozzle

 

Del volcán que se hace lava

Of-the volcano that itself makes lava

 

Que hace mil años

That ago [one]thousand years

 

Está aquí adentro.

Is here inside.

 

 

Y yo tejiendo redecillas

And I knitting little-nets

 

Para ver si puedo atraparte.

To see if [I]can capture-you.

 

Y aquí voy. . .colando la macilla

And here [I]go. . .filtering the clay

 

En medio de este trópico mortal.

In middle of this tropic deadly.

 

 

Buscando un poco de amor

Searching[for] a little[bit] of love

 

Buscando un poco de amor. . .

Searching[for] a little[bit] of love. . .
