Shake the mambo so my babes turn on the engines
Shake the mambo so my babes turn on the engines
Shake the mambo so my babes turn on the engines
Be ready to give her what's coming (hard!)
 
Mamita, I know that you're not going to take me away (hard!)
What I like is that you like to be taken away (hard!)
Every weekend she goes out to have fun (hard!)
My kitty (babe/baby) doesn't stop hanging out because
 
She likes petrol (give me more petrol)
How she loves petrol (give me more petrol) x2
 
She turns on the turbines,
She doesn't discriminate
Neither does she miss a fancy party
She even dresses up to go to the cornershop
She looks so good even her shadow mixes with her
Killer, she dominates me
She hangs out in cars, motorbikes and limousines,
She fills her tank with adrenaline
When she listens to reggaeton on the speaker
 
She likes petrol (give me more petrol)
How she loves petrol (give me more petrol) x4
 
Here we are the best,
Don't be alarmed,
On the dancefloor they call us 'The Killers'
You make anyone fall in love
When you dance to the rhythm of the drums,
This goes for babes of all colours,
For the older ones, for the younger ones
For those that are foxier than the hunters
For the women who don't turn off their engines
 
You and I, we have something unsettled,
You owe me something and you know it
With me she loses herself
She accounts to nobody x2
 
Shake the mambo so my babes turn on the engines
Shake the mambo so my babes turn on the engines
Shake the mambo so my babes turn on the engines
Be ready to give her what's coming (hard!)
 
Mamita, I know that you're not going to take me away (hard!)
What I like is that you like to be taken away (hard!)
Every weekend she goes out to have fun (hard!)
My kitty (babe/baby) doesn't stop hanging out because
 
She likes petrol (give me more petrol)
How she loves petrol (give me more petrol)

Author's comments:

Gata = Female cat, but here it is slang for 'babe'
Janguear = to hang out (from the English)
Bocina = Speaker (I think it's bocina and not 'cocina' in the original lyrics, though I could be wrong.
I'm English so have translated using British English.
The song is a metaphor, as I'm sure you can probably guess Wink smile
