Singalong! Here Are the Lyrics to Taco Bell's Spanish Ads

By Published on . 0

Taco Bell has taken the unusual route of using Spanish versions of famous U.S. pop songs for its English-language ads, what AdAge reports is an iteration of its ongoing "Live Mas" campaign and part of the brand's attempt to "push the boundaries" of what it means to be Mexican-inspired.

But what, exactly, make the versions en espanol of Lionel Ritchie's "Hello," Fun.'s "We Are Young" and Notorious B.I.G.'s 1995 hit "Big Poppa" so inexplicably funny? It turns out that the creatives at Deutsch Los Angeles used Google Translate to create the Spanish covers and "the songs seemed to play out funnier when the Spanish wasn't perfect," said Gordy Sang, a creative on the campaign. "And since the Spanish translations are usually longer than English, word-wise, it was nice to try and cram in all the words to fit the melody."

Below, find the lyrics (and English translations) to all three tunes.


LYRICS:

He estado solo contigo dentro de mi mente, y en mis sueños he besado tus labios un mil veces… (I've been alone with you inside my mind, and in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times)

Hola? Es a mi a quien estás buscando? (Hello? is it me you're looking for?)

Puedo verlo en tus ojos… (I can see it in your eyes…)



LYRICS:

Esta noche, nosotros somos jovenes. (Tonight, we are young.)

Así que vamos a poner el mundo en fuego… (So let's set the world on fire…)

Podemos quemar mas brillante, que el sol. (We can burn brighter, than the sun.)

Llevame a casa esta noche, llevame a casa esta noche. (Carry me home tonight, carry me home tonight).



LYRICS:

Me encanta cuando me llamas grande papi…Levantas las manos en el aire si eres un autentico jugador… (I love it when you call me big papa…Throw your hands in the air if you's a true player)

Me encanta cuando me llamas grande papi… Para todas las mujeres que hacen dinero jugando a los tontos. (I love it when you call me big papa…To the honeys getting money playing fellas like dummies.)

Me encanta cuando me llamas grande papi…Levantas las manos en el aire si eres un autentico jugador… (I love it when you call me big papa…Throw your hands in the air if you's a true player)

Bebe, bebe... (Baby, baby…)
