  • Ay padrita mía
    Guárdate la poesía
    Guárdate la alegría pa' ti

    Dame, dame, dámelo, oh

    No pido que todos los días sean de sol
    No pido que todos los viernes sean de fiesta
    Tampoco te pido que vuelvas rogando perdón
    Si lloras con los ojos secos
    Y hablando de ella

    Ay amor me duele tanto
    Me duele tanto
    Que te fueras sin decir a donde
    Ay amor, fue una tortura perderte

    Yo sé que no he sido un santo
    Pero lo puedo arreglar amor

    No solo de pan vive el hombre
    Y no de excusas vivo yo

    Solo de errores se aprende
    Y hoy se que es tuyo mi corazón

    Mejor te guardas todo eso
    A otro perro con ese hueso
    Y nos decimos adiós

    Esto es otra vez esto es otra vez no

    No puedo pedir que el invierno perdone a un rosal
    No puedo pedir a los olmos que entreguen peras
    No puedo pedirle lo eterno a un simple mortal
    Y andar arrojando a los cerdos miles de perlas

    Ay amor me duele tanto
    Me duele tanto
    Que no creas más en mis promesas
    Ay amor
    Es una tortura
    Perderte

    Yo se que no he sido un santo
    Pero lo puedo arreglar amor

    No solo de pan vive el hombre
    Y no de excusas vivo yo

    Solo de errores se aprende
    Y hoy se que es tuyo mi corazón

    Mejor te guardas todo eso
    A otro perro con ese hueso
    Y nos decimos adiós

    No te bajes, no te rajes
    Oye negrita mira, no te rajes
    De lunes a viernes tienes mi amor
    Déjame el sábado a mi que es mejor
    Oye mi negra no me castigues más
    Porque allá afuera sin ti no tengo paz
    Yo solo soy un hombre arrepentido
    Soy como el ave que vuelve a su nido

    Yo se que no he sido un santo
    Y es que no estoy hecho de cartón

    No solo de pan vive el hombre
    Y no de excusas vivo yo

    Solo de errores se aprende
    Y hoy se que es tuyo mi corazón

    Ay ay ay ay ay
    Ay, todo lo que he hecho por ti
    Una tortura perderte
    Me duele tanto que sea así
    Sigue llorando perdón
    Yo, yo no voy
    A llorar por ti Writer/s: Luis Fernando Ochoa, Shakira Mebarak

  • Monica from West Hartford, Ctthis is more than just a song about a guy wanting his girl back....he's also reasoning why his cheating ways should be accepted by her....that's she is his main woman, but that he NEEDS variety.....and why can she understand that?
  • Sebastian from Providence, RiThe song is about somebody that suffers because his/her lover left and is like a torture for her/him.
  • Kasey from Farmington, MoI love it even though i have no idea what it says!

  • Brooke from Jasper, InI am a stupid american that is in love with shakira i don't care what language her music is in i still LOVE IT !!!!!!! Her lyrics are inspiring and touching. She is my rolemodel!
  • Jim from Oxnard, CaI've seen too many American publications refer to this song as "La Torta." There's a huge difference between "torture" and a "cake."
