Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yo escuchaba el otro día
Una emisora radial
Un siquiatra, Doctor Luis
Daba consejo matrimonial

General Notes:
This is the bilingual version of a merengue/pop hit. The album which gets its title from this song won six Latin Grammy Awards in 2007, including "Album of the Year." The song itself won "Song of the Year."

Some of the English is in italics because it's part of the original song and not a translation. I tried not to repeat English parts too much.

Watch and Listen:

Bilingual Spanish/English version at YouTube.

For comparison: English version of the song at AOL Music. It's not a literal translation of the bilingual version.
