You’re Going to Lose It When You Find Out La Macarena Is Actually A Skank
If there’s one song we remember from our childhood, one song that made us leave our chair to hit the dance floor when we heard at weddings, quinceañeras and birthday parties, it’s the 1994 hit from the Spanish duo Los del Río, Macarena.
Everyone knew the dance.
“Dale a tu cuerpo alegría Macarena”
Young, old, Black, white, brown. Literally, everyone.
“Que tu cuerpo es pa’ darle alegría y cosa buena”
We didn’t know what the song was about, but it didn’t matter. The tune was catchy and the moves were super easy.
Even those with no rhythm mastered the dance.
BUT brace yourself, because after learning what the lyrics really mean, you’ll never look at your childhood the same.
Yes, it’s that bad.

?Now don’t you worry about my boyfriend
The boy whose name is Victorino
I don’t want him
Can’t stand him
He was no good so I… ha ha ha ha
Now come on, what was I supposed to do?
He was out of town and his two friends…
They were soooo fine?
How were our parents ever OK with this song?
This is wrong on so many levels.
