Lyrics to song Maria (English) by Ricky Martin

Translation from Spanish

She is, a special woman
Like she fell from another planet
She is, a sexual labyrinth
That traps you and you
find no way out

So is Maria:
White like the day
But she is poison,
that you're enamored with

So is Maria:
As hot as she is cold
If you drink her in,
it will surely kill you.

One, Two, Three
A small step forward with Maria,
One, Two, Three
A small step back.

Although it will kill me Maria
I have to kiss you

She is, like a mortal sin
She condemns
you to little by little
She is, a sexual mirage
That makes you cray,crazy

So is Maria:
White like the day
But she is poison,
that you're enamored with

So is Maria:
As hot as she is cold
If you drink her in,
It will surely kill you

One, Two, Three
A small step forward with Maria
One, Two, Three
A small step back

Although it kills now, Maria
Maria, give it to me now

One, Two, Three
A small step forward with Maria
One, Two, Three
A small step back
One, Two, Three
A small step forward with Maria
One, Two, Three
A small step back
One, Two, Three
A small step forward with Maria
One, Two, Three
A small step back

These lyrics are what a Spanish speaker hears when they hear the song.
They're what you're MEANT to understand, while not exactly LITERAL, for
example he says 'tan caliente y fria' which literally means 'as hot and cold'
but someone who speaks Spanish knows that it should be
'ella es tan caliente como fria' which means 'She is as hot as she is cold' but
due to poetic license, and the tempo of the song, he couldn't fit it in. There's
a subtlety to the lyrics that people who put them through an automatic translator
don't get from it, it takes a person who knows the language to get a proper translation.
