As the video above explains with the help of the song’s English version, “Macarena” wasn’t exactly a feel-good dance song. We took the liberty to add our own translation of the original Spanish lyrics below:
Give your body joy, Macarena
Because your body is meant to be given joy and good things
Give your body joy, Macarena.
Macarena has a boyfriend who is named
Who is named with the last name Vitorino
And while he was being sworn in as a conscript
She’s giving it to two friends
.…Macarena dreams of the Corte Inglés*
(*Spain’s biggest department store)
and she buys herself the most modern clothes
She would like to live in New York
And seduce a new boyfriend… aaay!
