[Verse 1: Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee]
¡Oh! Tú, tú eres el imán y yo soy el metal
Oh, you, you are the magnet and I’m the metal
Me voy acercando y voy armando el plan
I keep getting closer and building up the plan
Sólo con pensarlo se acelera el pulso (oh yeah)
Just thinking about it raises my heartbeat
Ya, ya me está gustando más de lo normal
Oh, yeah I’m already liking you more than usual
Todos mis sentidos van pidiendo más
All my senses are asking for more
Esto hay que tomarlo sin ningún apuro
This needs to be taken with no hurry

[Coro: Justin Bieber & Luis Fonsi / Daddy Yankee]
Despacito
Slowly
Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito
I want to smell your neck slowly
Deja que te diga cosas al oído
Let me whisper things in your ear
Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo
So that you’ll remember if you’re not with me
Despacito
Slowly
Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito
I want to undress you with my kisses, slowly
Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto
I sign the walls of your labyrinth
Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito
And make your whole body a manuscript
(Sube, sube, sube, sube, sube)
(Hop on, hop on, hop on, hop on, hop on!)

[Bridge 1: Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee]
Quiero ver bailar tu pelo, quiero ser tu ritmo (woah, woah)
I want to see your hair dance, I want to be your rhythm
Que le enseñes a mi boca (woah, woah)
And you show my mouth
Tus lugares favoritos (favorito, favorito, baby)
Your favorite places (Favourite, favourite, baby)
Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro (woah, woah)
Let me surpass your danger zones
Hasta provocar tus gritos (woah, woah)
To make you scream
Y que olvides tu apellido
And you forget your last name

[Verse 2: Daddy Yankee]
Si te pido un beso, ven, dámelo, yo sé que estás pensándolo
If I ask you for a kiss, come, give it to me, I know that you’re thinking about it
Llevo tiempo intentándolo, mami, esto es dando y dándolo
I’ve been trying for a while, Baby, this is giving and giving it
Sabes que tu corazón conmigo te hace bang-bang
You know that your heart with mine makes you go bang-bang
Sabes que esa beba está buscando de mi bang-bang
You know that she is looking for my bang-bang
Ven, prueba de mi boca para ver cómo te sabe
Come, taste from my mouth to see what it tastes like
Quiero, quiero, quiero ver cuánto amor a ti te cabe
I want to, I want to, I want to see how much love you can take in
Yo no tengo prisa, yo me quiero dar el viaje
I am not in a hurry, I want to take the trip
Empecemos lento, después salvaje
Let’s start slow, then wild

[Bridge 2: Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber / Daddy Yankee]
Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
Step by step, smooth and gentle
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito
We’re sticking together, little by little
Cuando tú me besas con esa destreza
When you kiss me with such skill
Veo que eres malicia con delicadeza
I see that you’re malice with tenderness
Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
Step by step, smooth and gentle
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito
We start sticking, little by little
Y es que esa belleza es un rompecabezas
And such beauty is a puzzle
Pero pa’ montarlo aquí tengo la pieza
But to solve it here I have the piece
¡Oye!
Listen!

[Coro: Justin Bieber & Luis Fonsi / Daddy Yankee]
Despacito
Slowly
Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito
I want to smell your neck slowly
Deja que te diga cosas al oído
Let me whisper things in your ear
Para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo
So that you remember if you’re not with me
Despacito
Slowly
Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito
I want to undress you with my kisses, slowly
Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto
I sign the walls of your labyrinth
Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito
And make your whole body a manuscript
(Sube, sube, sube Sube, sube)
(Hop on, hop on, hop on! Hop on, hop on!)

[Bridge 1: Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee]
Quiero ver bailar tu pelo, quiero ser tu ritmo (woah, woah)
I want to see your hair dance, I want to be your rhythm
Que le enseñes a mi boca (woah, woah)
And you show my mouth
Tus lugares favoritos (favorito, favorito, baby)
Your favorite places (Favorite, favorite, baby)
Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro (woah, woah)
Let me surpass your danger zones
Hasta provocar tus gritos (woah, woah)
To make you scream
Y que olvides tu apellido
And you forget your last name

[Verse 3: Luis Fonsi]
Despacito
Slowly
This is how we do it down in Puerto Rico
I just wanna hear you screaming, “¡Ay, Bendito!”
I just wanna hear you screaming, “Oh my god!”
I can move forever cuando esté contigo
I can move forever when it is with you
¡Bailalo!
Dance!

[Bridge 3: Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi & Justin Bieber]
Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
Step by step, smooth and gentle
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito
We’re sticking together, little by little
Que le enseñes a mi boca
You show my mouth
Tus lugares favoritos
Your favorite places
(Favorito, favorito, baby)
(Favourite, favourite, baby)
Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
Step by step, smooth and gentle
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito
We’re sticking together, little by little
Hasta provocar tus gritos (Fonsi)
Until we provoke screams (Fonsi)
Y que olvides tu apellido (D.Y.)
And you forget your last name (D.Y.)
Despacito
Slowly
