The Lyrics

Shakira, you need to do some more research on english
Its not my fault that im no understandible
and i try so hard just to be bilinguable
i promise that in spanish this is really good
what when i sing in english its just bad wood
it all gets lost in:
Translation it gets me a wide frustration
cause i was born in another nation
chickens run free and i love my Yoda
thats alright i dont know the:
translation my tounge speek is in tangle
im dizzy dingle dangle
the diction-atary i need again
till then sit down and watch me bend

this hermetic and athletic its harmonic and plutonic
english is not for me as you can plainly see but i can try it reverse it, spanglish rehearse it, but i get so lost so very very lost boy!

Nice use on not capitalizing your I's; it helps add to the effect of not knowing how to speak English.
