Meaning Practice (La Negra M&M)

“La Negra Tiene Tumbao”
Meaning

A rough English translation is given for each series of lines.  No word for word translations are offered here.  You can of course look the lyrics up online, but I encourage you to focus more on the general sound and meaning patterns, which you will pick up as you are exposed to and mimic more Spanish.

The black woman has swagger/swing/sex appeal
And she doesn’t to the side
The black woman has swagger/swing/sex appeal
She never walks to the side

If you want to approach straight,
It’s better that you walk in front.

So that there aren’t any trips
And you come and lament

If you want to come first
Best that you approach slowly

Enjoy life
While taking measures/being cautious
