Calypso

Calypso
Ay, work it, work it
Boom, pound the rhythm
Poom, pound the baseline
Confident and
Never to decline
Man come off
And beg you take time
Fonsi and Stefflon Don
 
I dunno, dunno, dunno what will hapen
Your body before the sea
A mix of sand and salt
 
But I know, I know, I know
That there's nothing normal about
What could happen
If you let me in
 
I have what you're looking for
It causes as much heat as it does fear
And you know that you like it, like it, like it
 
Setting fire to the ground
Painting stars in the sky
And I'll tell you what I want
 
If you stay we me
Dancing all night long
Right next to me
To the rhythm of love and indulgence
 
Whatever you ask of me, I'll do it
Wherever you go, I'll find you
All night long, I'll give you
 
Calypso, I'll give you Calypso
Un, dos, tres, Calypso
Un, deux, trois, Calypso
One, two, three, Calypso
I'll give you...
 
Calypso, I'll give you Calypso
Un, dos, tres, Calypso
Un, deux, trois, Calypso
One, two, three, Calypso
I'll give you Calypso
 
Ain't got no safety
But I swear I be falling
Daddy daddy
Yeah, I know that you want it
Don't wanna fight 'cause
I love when we' dancing
1, 2, 3, all right
 
With a little bit of that rum in your mouth
Not so little that you start going crazy
That look of yours never fails
1, 2, 3, all right
 
Anyway you dare me there
You know I tip it up
Top down all in your town
We live it up
Still got an attitude
And I don't give a wha...
 
Tell the DJ I wanna
Pull up when we pull up
The way the thing's set up
Y'all like a tick up
Damn I move slow
So the time just stand up
You know
We never lack
Pull up to the front but
We come in through the back
 
I have what you're looking for
It causes as much heat as it does fear
And you know that you like it
Like it, like it
 
Setting fire to the ground
Painting stars in the sky
And I'll tell you what I want
 
If you stay we me
Dancing all night long
Right next to me to the rhythm of love and indulgence
Whatever you ask of me, I'll do it
Wherever you go, I'll find you
All night long, I'll give you Calypso
 
If you stay with me
Dancing till morning
We'll run the risk of waking up in my bed
 
Whatever you ask of me, I'll do it
Wherever you go, I'll find you
All night long, I'll give you Calypso
Un, dos, tres, Calypso
Un, deux, trois, Calypso
One, two, three, Calypso
I'll give you Calypso
 
Un, dos, tres, Calypso
Un, deux, trois, Calypso
One, two, three, Calypso
I'll give you Calypso
 
Un, dos, tres, Calypso
Un, deux, trois, Calypso
One, two, three, Calypso
I'll give you Calypso

On it's own, calypso refers to a musical genre of Afro-Caribbean (Trinidadian) origin.

Regarding the song itself, Fonsi has said, "I really wanted to release this single because of the way it makes me feel every time I listen to it. For me, Calypso (the song) is full of fun, colors, Caribbean vibes, and beach atmosphere. To sum it up, it's something that inspires one to have a grand ol' time. It has a fresh island beat and plays with three languages: Spanish, English, and even a little bit of French. When it came time to record it, I wanted to bring in a female voice that could give it that special touch, and Stefflon Don did the job perfectly because she has a British accent, but at the same time, that Jamaican flavor, and the result is incredible. She is supremely talented and a great artist."
