Eric.
What does this mean ?

'Quisiera ser un pez
Para tocar mi nariz
en tu pecera
y hacer burbujas de amor
por donde quiera'

Just curious.
Thanks.

Hi Shilo,

It is Spanish, coming from a song ('burbujas de amor') by Juan Luis Guerra, singer from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean.

It means (more poetic than the translation though...):

'I would like to be a fish
I could touch my nose
in your fishbowl
and make love bubbles
wherever you'd like them'

actually, I do not know if you know this but people joke down there about this song saying that it represents 2 fishes in love...and farting in the water :)

that's why the 'burbulhas' (bubbles) of love :)

hehehe... I could not resist :)

true superedge,

First time I heard the song, was during a trip in Cuba, instantly loved the song and got interested in the singer. I was told the same story as well.

well, I guess romance can be found in farting fishes then? :lol:
