All comments below are based as my experience as an interpreter and are not set in stone. These are based on what was discussed in the experience today.

Interpretation

Franco de Vita and Ricardo Montaner are well known interpreters. Their music are generally slow paced so these are great songs to practice your Spanish with

Translation

We attempted to translate

“I’m not gonna teach him how to dance, dance, dance, dance/The second I do, I know we’re gonna be through/I’m not gonna teach him how to dance with you/He don’t suspect a thing. I wish he’d get a clue”

Our best guess was

“Yo no le voy a enseñar a bailar, bailar, bailar, bailar/En el momento que lo hago, yo sé que lo nuestro se acabará/Yo no le voy a enseñar a bailar contigo/El no sospecha nada. Me gustaría que se diera cuenta”
