    i think i've got these for you. Im just a bit unsure of the form of the first one.

    Enamoren- (subjunctive ustedes... form of enamorar, to enamor/win the heart of) so, they win the heart of/ they enamor.

    Traicionera- trecherous

    Cuentame- tell me (its a command)... cuentaME todos tus secretos (tell ME all of your secrets).

    Sacala- another command. take it, it (la) is a femanine noun that you add to the end of the verb... so instead of saca la foto, you just say "sacala"

    Mismo/misma- the same

    In the song "Sacala", they are referring to a gun. 'Sacala, dale usala' means 'Take it out, come on, use it'.

    Default Correction

    Arux, i was reading your post and you got most of the things but there are some things that you are saying wrong.

    First:

    Pelón- A boricua slang for someone stupid. Like someone who makes stupid jokes but doesn't make anyone to laugh, in this case... the guy is a joke.

    bocina- Not only speaker but in some other songs it means the car's horn.

    eso es- means that's it. We the puerto ricans say "eso es" to encourage someone when doing something like dancing sexy or something like that.

    CHULIN CHULIN CHUNFLY- doesn't mean anything you said but was taken as a parody of an old song of Chespirito. I think was "el chavo" or "chapulin colorado" I still remember that old song chulin chulin chunfly.

    K thanks. I also call the car horn bocina but in that case it meant the speaker. However, you are right. In other songs like "Tocale Bocina" it refers to the car horn.

    I said 'that's how I like it' to translate 'Eso Es' to retain the fact that it is meant to encourage the people dancing, and 'that's it' is not used in that sense in English. On the contrary, it has a negative connotation. If you wanted it literally, it would say "That Is"

    Now that you mention it, I remember watching 'El chavo del 8' and I recall some weird thing he sang. The fact that the expression was taken form somewhere and altered supports the fact that it has a meaning. If he wanted to say the same (meaningless?) thing from 'El chavo' he would have used it in its original version. He altered it for some reason, he removed that letter H so that it would say Culin. 'Chulin Culin' means "Cute Butt" aqui y en China.

    Yep, it means 'more corn'. However, I think they employed that phrase in a more clever way. In the chorus when they say 'mas maiz' it sounds like they are saying 'mama ahi' (suck/lick me here). No one can say they are saying anything vulgar; after all, isnt the song about the corn? lol

    Enfocao means focused, I guess he is advising to keep your focus while you mature.

    In another song (El Booty by Wisin y Yandel) they say 'esa gallina esta pidiendo maiz'. You know that in reggaeton they have a series of metaphors for the girls (gata, loba etc) that are used over and over. So here the girl acts as a hen asking for more corn, demanding more from the man (she is horny).

    The first song is by a group called "3 Pesos", I believe it is called 'Reggaeton'. The second one is called 'Chain Reaction' by "Cuban Link". I dont know if you know it, but just in case, there's "Mayor Que Yo part 2". I like it even more than the fist one

    SI NO TE PEGAS NO VALE!!! :P
