Guys. We need to talk about "Burbujas de Amor."

Juan Luis Guerra y 4-40 / Via

Ok, let's jump right into the lyrics. Here we go:

Alex Alvarez / Via

The translation: I have a heart that's been stripped of hope and reason. I have a heart that wakes up wherever.

The meaning: This guy is suffering. He's lost all hope of finding someone to really love, but will get so nasty you guys with literally whomever. Who even cares.


Ok, typical love stuff. Let's continue:

Alex Alvarez / Via

The translation: And this heart undresses impatiently upon hearing your voice. Poor heart, who can't maintain its sanity.

The meaning: He's got a heart-on.


It can't get any worse, right? And yet...

Alex Alvarez / Via

The translation: Pull an all-nighter... WET. INSIDE. YOU.

The meaning: I mean. That's what grown folks do when they're pressing fish noses against fish bowls. Also: WHAT.


Ok, and did you notice...

Weight Watchers / Via

... that this fish is, like. A super fish that can press its nose (which, I am no fish doctor, but I think that's a rare feature for a fish to possess) against a fish bowl and then IMMEDIATELY, like, teleport into a woman's body? That is a magical horny fish. The kind your mom warned you about.

And I mean, it goes on from there.

Being all romantic and fish-themed and whatnot. Juan Luis Guerra sings (beautifully, too) about creating silhouettes under the moonlight and wanting to be with his lady forever, face to face, gill to gill.
