"The One" "Te Dejo Madrid" "Que Me Quedes Tú"

"Te Dejo Madrid" (English: "I Leave You Madrid") is a song written by Colombian singer Shakira about the city of Madrid, the capital of Spain. The music video for it featured the singer as a bullfighter. It was featured on her English breakthrough album Laundry Service. Although it was released as the fifth single in a lot of European countries in 2002, it wasn't released in the United States. "Te Dejo Madrid" was very successful, as it reached the number-one spot in Italy and Spain, but the song did not repeat its success with the Hispanic-Americans, as it reached a peak position of forty-five in Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks.

Music videoEdit

The music video for "Te Dejo Madrid" is infamously remembered for the lawsuit that famous Spanish bullfighter Julián López Escobar filed against Shakira, for using footage of his performances without his permission. In the music video, Shakira is seen lying on a bed and in front of a mirror in a bull fighting costume. The television shows scenes from a bull fighting performance. It shows Shakira then running to the stadium, where these performances are recorded, with a pair of large scissors. When she arrives, there is a man, who is the bull fighter, inside the ring, who is pictured throughout the video as maybe her lover, who is looking in the mirror at himself. Shakira flips the mirror around so she is facing the bull fighter. Shakira is shown with a bull mask on and she is portrayed as the bull. They come face to face and she touches his lips, but turns away and plays the harmonica solo. The video ends with Shakira cutting off her long hair in the mirror and putting.

Shakira - Te Dejo Madrid

Si ya es hora de esconder
Del mundo el dolor
Bajo la piel
Más se que estaré bien
Los gatos como yo
Caen de pie

No quiero
Jugar mi suerte por ti
No puedo
Con V pequeña vivir
Pronto estaré
De aquí muy muy lejos

Ay me voy otra vez
Ahi te dejo Madrid
Tus rutinas de piel
Y tus ganas de huir

Yo no quiero cobardes
Que me hagan sufrir
Mejor le digo adiós
A tu boca de aniz

Si ya es hora de limpiar
Las manchas de miel
Sobre el mantel
Yo nunca supe actuar
Y mis labios se ven
Muertos de sed

No quiero
Dejarlo todo a lazar
Entiendo
Que he comenzado a estorbar
Pronto estaré
De ti muy muy lejos

Ay me voy otra vez
Ahi te dejo Madrid
Tus rutinas de piel
Y tus ganas de huir

Yo no quiero cobardes
Que me hagan sufrir
Mejor le digo adiós
A tu boca de aniz

Ay me voy otra vez
Ahi te dejo Madrid
Tus rutinas de piel
Y tus ganas de huir

Yo no quiero cobardes
Que me hagan sufrir
Mejor le digo adiós
A tu boca de aniz

Ay me voy otra vez
Ahi te dejo Madrid
Tus rutinas de piel
Y tus ganas de huir

Yo no quiero cobardes
Que me hagan sufrir
Mejor le digo adiós
A tu boca de aniz

Ahi te dejo Madrid
Madrid
A tu boca de aniz
A tu boca de aniz
