He comes from a foreign place,
An island far away
Intrigues me with every move
Till I’m breathless, I’m helpless, can’t keep my cool
Steals my heart when he takes my hand
And we dance to the rhythm of the band
Feel his fingertips grip my hips
And I slip as we dip into a state of bliss
Mama used to warn me to beware those Latin lovers
She said I gave my heart too soon and that’s how I became your mother
I said, "Ay, Mama, you seem to forget
I’m not in love yet,
Sweet talk don’t win me over"
But I realize big brown eyes can hypnotize when he says

I am full blood Boricua
Reads the tattoo on his arm
He tells me, "Mami, I need ya
And my heartbeat pumps so strong"
Getting lost in el ritmo
He whispers, "Te quiero, te quiero"
I begin to give in with no hesitation
Can’t help my infatuation
It’s pure infatuation

Skin the color of cinnamon
His eyes light up and I melt within
Feels so good it must be sin
I can’t stop what I started I’m giving in
He brings life to my fantasies,
Sparks a passion inside of me,
Finds the words when I cannot speak
In the silence, his heart beat is music to me
Mama used to warn me not to rush love with another
She said, "I’m not trying to lecture, I just care about my daughter"
I said, "Ay, Mama, you seem to forget
I never will let a man control my emotions"
But when he smiles, I feel like a little child and when he says


Caught between my mama’s words and what I feel inside
I’m wanting to explore his world but part of me wants to hide
Should I risk it, can’t resist it, this has caught me by surprise
Should I let him take me to Puerto Rico?
I can’t hold back no more, let’s go tonight

Papi, hold me, say that you adore me
Never let go, never leave me lonely
Papi, hold me, say that you adore me
Never let go, never leave me lonely
