Jennifer Lopez- Dame Lyrics and Translation

In February I did a post with the lyrics for Nelly Furtado's song Te Busque. It has some Spanish lyrics and I had a go at translating them. I enjoyed that, so I decided to have a go with one my favourite singers Jennifer Lopez's songs. It's called Dame (Touch Me) and is a duet with Puerto Rican-American singer Chayanne. It appeared on her 2nd album J.Lo (2001).

I used Google Translate, a couple of other online translation sites and my old Spanish dictionary for help! I had a bit of trouble with the title, "Dame" comes out as "give to me" on Google Translate but since the song is also called "Touch Me" I'm going to presume that's what they're singing. I got the lyrics from Letssingit.com. They're in  the CD booklet too but I also found a lyrics video on YouTube where some of them have an extra bit added or slightly different to what's written in the booklet. It does sound like what they're actually singing in the song, so I used an extra line.

Some of the lines probably aren't the most accurate translation, so if anyone is a native or fluent Spanish speaker and has a better/more exact translation then let me know! :)







Dame (Touch Me)


Verse 1

Baby, me atrapas*
Baby, you've trapped me

Me enloqueces
You drive me crazy
Con tu cuerpo me tienes
With your body you got me
Justo en el punto que quieres
Just at the point you want
Donde el alma se pierde
Where the soul is lost

Baby, dime lo que piensas
Baby, tell me what you think
Me estoy dando cuenta
I am realising
Eso que estás provoacando
You are provoking
Yo sé muy bien lo que estás pensando
I know very well what you're thinking


Ahora sabes lo que yo estoy sintiendo
Now you know what I'm feeling
Me vuelvo loco con tu cruel movimento
I go crazy with your cruel motion
Cómo quisiera con mis labios tocarte
How I wish to touch you with my lips
Acariciarte, seducirite y amarte
Caress, seduce and love you
Oh baby, please



Chorus

Dame, dame, dame
Touch me, touch me, touch me
(Quiero sentir)
(I want to feel)
Dame, dame, dame
Touch me, touch me, touch me
(Todo de ti)
(All of you)
Quiero, quiero, quiero
I want, I want, I want
Perderme en tu pasión y tu deseo
To get lost in your passion and your desire

Repeat




Verse 2

Me llames
Call me
Me dices que me quiere
You tell me you want me
Y que me das la vida solo por tenerme
And you'd give your life only to have me

Te pido un poco mas de tu tiempo
I ask for a little more of your time
No mes ve que estoy muriendo?
Can't you see I'm dying?
Tan solo por un beso
Only/just for a kiss
Es urgente tenerte en mis brazos
It's urgent to have you in my arms
Sin ti me voy hundiendo despacio
Without you I'm slowly sinking

Ahora sabes lo que yo estoy sintiendo
Now you know what I'm feeling
Me vuelvo loco con tu cruel movimento
I go crazy with your cruel movement
Cómo quisiera con mis labios tocarte
How I wish to touch you with my lips
Acariciarte, seducirite y amarte
Caress, seduce and love you
Oh baby, please





Chorus x4



Bridge

Que mas de sino es para siempre
Who cares if it's not forever?
Lo que sientes (Lo que sientes)
What you feel
Solo se que solo al mirate quiero tenerte, amarte asi**
I only want to look at you, love you so
Pideme aguello que quieras cuando quieras (Cuando quieras)
Ask me what you want when you want
Si no es amor basta con tu pasion
If not love your passion is enough

Dame
Touch me
Todo de ti
All of you
Quiero
I want
Oh baby, please

Chorus x3 


*I wasn't sure if this would best translate as "You've trapped me" or "You've caught me" but I chose "trapped" for now.

**Not sure about this line.

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)


The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)


First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.



So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
