Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This ballad-like track with an Indian flavor is the third international single from Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira's third English studio album, She Wolf.
In this song, Shakira warns her lover that she's a gypsy, and not the "homecoming kind." She invites him to come with her on the road, but adds "You're no fool. If you say 'no'."
Shakira also recorded a Spanish version of this song titled "Gitana." It was released as a single in Latin America and Spain.
The song's music video features Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal as Shakira's love interest. Jaume de Laiguana directed the clip in Barcelona.
Shakira performed this song as a duet with Rascal Flatts on the April 28, 2010 episode of American Idol.
Shakira told The Daily Star about the song's meaning: "(The song represents my) way of living and seeing life. I've been on the road since I was very young, so that's where the gypsy metaphor comes from."
