Dile a la mañana que se acerca mi sueño
que lo que se espera con paciencia se logra
nueve horas a París viajé sin saberlo
y crucé por Rusia con escala en tu boca

tell morning that get close to my dream
that what you have been waithing with patience can be achieved
nine hours to parís i travel whitout knowing it
and crossed by Russia with a stopover at your mouth

Yo canté tu bachata aquí en Fukuoka
(tu bachata en Fukuoka)

i sang your bachata here in fukuoka
(your bachata in fukuoka)

Y un atardecer pintó de canvas el cielo
caminé la playa de Momochi, mi anhelo
y se me escapó una sonrisa del alma
aquí me enseñó arigato gozaimasu

and a sunset canvas painted the sky
i walked the momochi beach, my longing
and a smyle from my soul got away
here arigato gozaimasu taught me

Yo canté tu bachata aquí en Fukuoka

i sang your bachata here in fukuoka

Pa’bailar contigo, (pa’bailar)
se me alegra la nota
Quiero cantar contigo, (quiero)
una bachata en Fukuoka

to dance with you (to dance) pleased my note

i want to sing with you (i want) a bachata in fukuoka

Una bachata en Fukuoka, (pa’ soñar contigo)
en el mar las gaviotas

a bachata in fukuoka (to dream about you)
at the sea the seagulls

Con tu piel de abrigo (quiero)
vivir bachata en Fukuoka

with your skin as a coat (i want)
live bachata en fukuoka

Y llegó la hora de partir y decir sayonara (con pocas ganas)
y una palomita se posó en mi ventana
Kon’nichi wa!, ohayoo gozaimasu

and the time come to go and say "sayonara" (with few desire)
and a little bird landed on my window
Kon’nichi wa!, ohayoo gozaimasu

Pa’bailar contigo, (pa’bailar)
se me alegra la nota

to dance with you (to dance)
  pleased my note

Quiero cantar contigo (quiero)

una bachata en Fukuoka

Una bachata en Fukuoka

i want to sing with you (i want)
a bachata in fukuoka

a bachata in fukuoka

Sueños, de arena en las olas
Besos, me daba tu boca
Tengo, estrellas y rosas
Niña, cantando en Fukuoka

dreams, about sand in the waves
kisses, your mouth gives me
i have, stars and roses
girl, singing at fukuoka

Pa’bailar contigo, (para bailar)
se me alegra la nota


to dance with you (to dance)
pleased my note

Quiero cantar contigo (quiero)
una bachata en Fukuoka

i want to sing with you (i want)
a bachata in fukuoka

Una bachata en Fukuoka, (pa’ soñar contigo)
en el mar las gaviotas

a bachata in fukuoka (to dream about you)
at the sea the seagulls

Con tu piel de abrigo
vivir bachata en Fukuoka

with your skin as a coat
live bachata en fukuoka
