Wisin - Vacaciones (English translation)

English translation

Vacations

Versions: #1#2
I thought I saw a cute little babe (haha)
Double T
 
I woke up,
in someone else's living room
and I tripped,
on a pair of heels and four bottles
I’m starting to remember,
it was a really good night
And I found myself,
on a couch with 2 black girls
 
Why keep on working,
I’m going to keep on celebrating
That is how you live life better
Last night was craziness,
tomorrow is another adventure
may be the day after I'll forget today (x2)
 
I don't need vacations,
nor headaches
All I need are my friends
and some beer
I don't need vacations,
nor headaches
I just want you to let me know
if there's a party tonight
 
Lero lero la, sweating
Lero lero la, grinding
Lero lero la, dancing
Lero lero la, having fun (2x)
 
I got out of bed and the rumba music calls me
24/7 searching for a lady
I forgot the fame,
I spill my drink
And I keep on grinding and dancing until my feet swell
 
I know you want it,
I want it too
I won’t put it out there, but I want to be the first
If you ask me for a kiss, I'll overdo it
You know the cowboy,
the one in a hat, with a Cuban gal
 
I don't need vacations,
nor headaches
All I need are my friends
and some beer
I don't need vacations,
nor headaches
I just want you to let me know
if there's a party tonight
 
Lero lero la, sweating
Lero lero la, grinding
Lero lero la, dancing
Lero lero la, having fun (x2)
 
Rumba, jokester, and tequila,
my combo lines up
Baby, you're with me, so calm down
It fascinates me how you joke with me
Your body kills me
and completely drains me
 
This is a Latino party,
everybody in the pool
Invite your friends because this never ends
Let's go to the corner,
babe you look divine
It fascinates me,
baby, show me the routine
 
Why keep on working, I’m going to keep on celebrating
That is how you live life better
Last night was craziness, tomorrow is another adventure
may be the day after I'll forget today
 
Why keep on working, I’m going to keep on celebrating
That is how you live life better
Last night was craziness, tomorrow is another adventure
may be the day after I'll forget today
 
I don't need vacations, nor headaches
All I need are my friends and some beer
I don't need vacations, nor headaches
I just want you to let me know if there's a party tonight
 
Lero lero la, sweating
Lero lero la, grinding
Lero lero la, dancing
Lero lero la, having fun (x2)

When he says "morenas" he's talking about brown-skinned girls, like latinos, not black girls. But overall a good job on translating.

Hola Diácono and thanks for your msg!
"Morenas" as in Black /Afro-Latinas. In the video, he's referring to two beautiful black Latinas when he says that. Brown-skinned would be "trigueño/a" (caramel-colored), or the classic Olive-toned Latinos are considered "moreno claro."
I'm a pale Latina "blanca" and my kids are half Dominican "moreno" so they're "trigueños." Hope that explains my translation Regular smile

That's interesting, and struck me too when I read the translation because to me black is "negro" and "moreno" is more like brown/latino like Diácono says. I think it's partly a relative term and depends on where/compared to whom also. I used to live in Spain and they called me "morena" even though I am fairly light skinned (half-mexican, half-white, with dark eyes, dark hair and medium skin tone).
