Bad Bunny, Moscow Mule: the english lyrics and the meaning

Posted by

Bad Bunny is a Puerto Rican rapper who has seen his popularity grow more and more in recent years. After producing several albums and collaborating with artists like Nicki Minaj, Drake and Jennifer Lopez, he has arrived on his fourth solo album, Un Verano Sin Ti, released on May 6th 2022. There are many songs on the album that listeners are learning to appreciate, and among these there is certainly Moscow Mule, the single from the album, with the official video released together with the record. You can find the video below.

The translated lyrics and the meaning of the song

Moscow Mule is a classic reggaeton rap song that echoes the ways Western rappers target the girls who attract them. In the text, the girl appears as a very attractive woman who tries to be elusive, but who – according to Bad Bunny’s words – basically wants to get to the bottom of the attraction exactly like him. The Moscow Mule is the famous drink born from the union between Russian and American traditions, and in the song it represents a drink that the woman is invited to drink to lose the latest inhibitions.

The lyrics contain a series of double meanings and allusions that can be difficult to understand, especially for those unfamiliar with Spanish. Below is the original lyrics and the translation in English.

Si yo no te escribo
Tú no me escribe’, ey
Si tú quieres, te busco
Yo sé dónde tú vive’
Quizá hoy está aborrecía’
Pero por dentro tú tiene’ alegría

If I don’t write to you
You don’t write to me, hey
If you want, I look for you
I know where you live
Maybe today you are upset
But you are happy inside

Si quieres te la saco
Dos trago’ y sabes
Que me pongo bellaco
No somo’ na’
Pero estamo’ envuelto’ hace rato
Whatsapp sin el retrato
No guarda mi contacto (ey, ey, ey, ey)
Pero se la saco
Dos trago’ y sabes
Que me pongo bellaco
No somo’ na’
Pero estamo’ envuelto’ hace rato, oh-oh
Whatsapp sin el retrato
No guarda mi contacto-to

I’ll pull it out if you want
Two drinks and you know it
That I get horny
We are not a thing
But we’ve been entangled for a while
Whatsapp with no portrait
She doesn’t save my contact
But I pull it out
Two drinks and you know it
That I get horny
We are not a thing
But we’ve been entangled for a while
Whatsapp with no portrait
She doesn’t save my contact

Todo e’ underwater
Baby, vamo’ pa’l cuarto quarter
En la Uru’ comiéndono’ el pate
Te vo’a dar duro pa’ que no me compare’
Ey, cuida’o con ese mahón
Que se va a romper (ey)
Ese booty lo va a romper (ey)
Yo no sé si yo te vuelvo a ver
Si mañana me vo’a perder

Everything is underwater
Let’s go for the fourth quarter
In the Uru eating each other out
I’ll give it to you so hard so you can’t compare
Careful with those pants
They will rip
I will destroy your booty
I don’t know if I’ll see you again
If I get lost tomorrow

Tú ere’ una player
Me hiciste un crossover
Esta ve’ metiste
Me diste game over, eh, eh
Porque no puedo olvidar
El perreo aquel
Que se fue viral

You are a player
You gave me a crossover
This time you played me
Gave me a game over
Because I can’t forget
Your dance
Which went viral

Dime si mañana te va’ a quedar
Después de la alarma te lo voy a dar
Ey, hoy tú no va’ a trabajar, je, no

Tell me if you will stay tomorrow
After the alarm sounds, I’ll give it to you
You don’t go to work today, no

Si quieres te la saco
Dos trago’ y sabes
Que me pongo bellaco
No somo’ na’
Pero estamo’ envuelto’ hace rato
Whatsapp sin el retrato
No guarda mi contacto
Pero se la saco
Dos trago’ y sabes
Que me pongo bellaco
No somo’ na’
Pero estamo’ envuelto’ hace rato
Whatsapp sin el retrato
No guarda mi contacto

I’ll pull it out if you want
Two drinks and you know it
That I get horny
We are not a thing
But we’ve been entangled for a while
Whatsapp with no portrait
She doesn’t save my contact
But I pull it out
Two drinks and you know it
That I get horny
We are not a thing
But we’ve been entangled for a while
Whatsapp with no portrait
She doesn’t save my contact

Piquetúa
Mami, qué rica te ve’ ‘esnu’a
Quizás no sentiste lo que yo sentí
Pero aún te debo una noche en la suite
Pa’ darte tabla
Dale, mami, habla
Tú ere’ una diablona
No te haga’
Pa’ darte tabla
Dale, mami, habla
Tú ere’ una diablona
No te haga’
No, no, no, no (no, no, no, no)

I like them like that
With style
Mami, you look so good naked
Maybe you haven’t felt what I felt
But I still owe you one night in the suite
I’ll give it to you rough
Speak, mommy
You are a devil
I’ll give it to you hard
Speak, mommy
You are a devil
No, no, no, no

Ey, yo no sé tú
Pero yo quisiera amanecer ‘esnu’
En una playa por Balí, si no, Cancún
Pide otro Moscow Mule (ey)

I don’t know about you
But I want to to wake up naked
On a beach in Bali, or Cancún
Order another Moscow Mule

Ven y choca
Conmigo que se joda
Baby, tú ‘tás grandota
Pero hoy ando en nota, nota
Ven y choca
Conmigo que se joda, eh
Que se joda, ey

Because I feel high
Come
And crash with me
You are great
But today I feel high
Come here
And crash with me
You are great

Mami, tú quieres perreo
Tú quieres bellaqueo

Mami, you want grinding
You want grinding
