Singalong! Hips Don't Lie by Shakira

What do you think it means that Shakira's hips don't tell lies? Does it mean that if she's dancing she must be happy, because her hips don't pretend they're happy? Or that they are able to speak and only tell the truth? (Probably the first. Or maybe something sexier.)


HIPS DON'T LIE
by Shakira

Ladies up in here tonight
No fighting, no fighting
(We got the refugees up in here)
No fighting
Shakira, Shakira

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She make a man wanna speak Spanish
Cómo se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby, when you talk like that
You make a woman go mad
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

I'm on tonight, you know my hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel it's right
All the attraction, the tension
Don't you see baby, this is perfection

Hey girl, I can see your body moving
And it's driving me crazy
And I didn't have the slightest idea
Until I saw you dancing
And when you walk up on the dance floor
Nobody cannot ignore the way you move your body, girl
And everything so unexpected - the way you right and left it
So you can keep on shaking it

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She make a man wanna speak Spanish
Cómo se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby, when you talk like that
You make a woman go mad
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

They know I'm on tonight, my hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel it's right
All the attraction, the tension
Don't you see baby, this is perfection

Oh boy, I can see your body moving
Half animal, half man
I don't, don't really know what I'm doing
But you seem to have a plan
My will and self restraint
Have come to fail now, fail now
See, I'm doing what I can, but I can't so you know
That's a bit too hard to explain

Baila en la calle de noche Baila en la calle de día
Baila en la calle de noche Baila en la calle de día

I never really knew that she could dance like this
She make a man wanna speak Spanish
Cómo se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa Shakira, Shakira

Oh baby, when you talk like that
You know you got me hypnotized
So be wise and keep on
Reading the signs of my body

Señorita, feel the conga
Let me see you move like you come from Colombia
Mira en Barranquilla se baila así, say it!
En Barranquilla se baila así

Yeah, she's so sexy every man's fantasy
A refugee like me back with the Fugees from a third world country
I go back like when 'Pac carried crates for Humpty Humpty
We leave the whole club dizzy
Why the CIA wanna watch us? Colombians and Haitians
I ain't guilty, it's a musical transaction
Bo-bop-so-bop, no more do we snatch ropes
Refugees run the seas, 'cause we own our own boats

I'm on tonight
My hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel you boy
Come on let's go, real slow
Baby like this is perfecto

No fighting, no fighting

Hips Don't Lie
Giphy.
