Spanish Pop Lyrics

Translations of the best Spanish, French and German pop and rock songs

HU HU HU By NATALIA LAFOURCADE & JULIETA VENEGAS May 13, 2012

Natalia Lafourcade is a Mexican singer-songwriter. This is the title track of her 2009 album, and it features her compatriot Julieta Venegas, with whom she is sometimes compared.

I saw Natalia live recently (supporting Xoel López, see the previous post), and her performance suggested that her forthcoming album will feature darker material. Sadly, the Spanish crowd seemed to have little idea who she was, though I think she is a star in Mexico (and elsewhere).

HU HU HU 

Quiero regalarte las estrellas,
O la luna entera,
Una hora extra para respirar
Un pastel, una cereza,
Un papel que tenga letras
O también pinturas para dibujar.

Un reloj que nos dé tiempo,
Flores que ponen contento,
Libros que te atrapen hasta el final.
Hu-Hu-Hu

Quiero regalarte el cielo
Quiero regalarte el campo,
Quiero regalarte todo un jardín.
Quiero ver si llueve,
Sólo quiero ver si crece
Sólo quiero tantas cosas,
Y te quiero a ti.

Un reloj que nos dé tiempo,
Flores que ponen contento,
Un camino largo para caminar,
Hu-Hu-Hu

Quiero ver como te mueves
Quiero inventar palabras
Quiero y quiero más,
No es suficiente para hacer
Que esto vuelva a suceder.
Quiero detener el viento
Quiero detener el tiempo,
Y quiero despertar.
Hu-Hu-Hu
HU HU HU

I want to give you the stars
And the full moon
An extra hour to breath
A cake, a cherry
A lyric sheet
And coloured pencils to draw with too

A clock to tell us the time
Flowers that make you feel good
Books that hold you ‘til the end
Hu-Hu-Hu

I want to give the sky
I want to give the countryside
I want to give you a whole garden
I want to see if it rains
I just want to see it it grows
I want so many things
And I love you

A clock that tells us the time
Flowers that make you feel good
A long path to walk
Hu-Hu-Hu

I want to see how you move
I want to make up words
I want more and more
It’s not enough to make
This happen again
I want to stop the wind
I want to stop time
I want to wake up
Hu-Hu-Hu

PRONUNCIATION
The letter H in Spanish is silent, and U is pronounced Oo (like You).
So Hu-Hu-Hu sounds like Oo-Oo-Oo (the funky gibbon...)
