Shakira Album: "Laundry Service"

Laundry Service: Shakira -CD Buy now this album
Audio CD (November 13, 2001)

"I think I am celebrating life more than ever," said Shakira. "I had a slightly narrow vision of love. Now I am feeling unguarded, and it feels great. I feel washed clean of the way I looked at things in the past, which is why I am calling the album LAUNDRY SERVICE."

CD Review

Colombian superstar Shakira's first English-language disc, Laundry Service, carries the pointed credit "Entire Album Produced by Shakira." That might be a signal to U.S. fans who helped two of her previous discs go platinum under the media radar--a sign that this planned breakthrough has more to offer than the input of a score of image makers and outside writers. And it does; even the occasional clunky lyric comes directly from her overflowing heart. Laundry Service's meld of danceable pop and rockier ideas and textures follows the similar path of the singer-songwriter's previous work. Indeed, for all its high-end production values, the record is ultimately one of the least glossy crossover vehicles imaginable. Despite an occasional lean toward Celine Dion territory ("Underneath Your Clothes"), it has a freshness that's sure to win over new listeners even after the first single, the sly "Whenever, Wherever," has reached the saturation point. While still not fully formed as an artist, she's getting close to something of her own--something that may flower after she dumps the vocalisms. For now, it's still a pleasure to watch her grow.

Objection (Tango)

Words and Music by: Shakira

Album:

Laundry Service

It's not her fault that she's so irresistible
But all the damage she's caused isn't fixable
Every twenty seconds you repeat her name
But when it comes to me you don't care
If I'm alive or dead

So objection I don't wanna be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother

Objection I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way I've got to get away

Next to her cheap silicon I look minimal
That's why in front of your eyes I'm invisible
But you gotta know small things also count
You better put your feet on the ground
And see what it's about

Objection I don't wanna be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your motherv But you don't even bother

Objection I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way I've got to get away

I wish there was a chance for you and me
I wish you couldn't find a place to be
Away from here

This is pathetic and sardonic
It's sadistic and psychotic
Tango is not for three
Was never meant to be

But you can try it
Rehearse it
Or train like a horse
But don't you count on me
Don't you count on me boy

Objection I don't wanna be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
And you don't even bother

Objection I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way I've got to get away


Underneath Your Clothes

Words by: Shakira

Music by: Shakira and Lester Mendez

You're a song
Written by the hands of god
Don't get me wrong cause
This might sound to you a bit odd
But you own the place
Where all my thoughts go hiding
And right under your clothes
Is where I find them
Underneath Your Clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And all the things I deserve
For being such a good girl honey

Because of you
I forgot the smart ways to lie
Because of you
I'm running out of reasons to cry
When the friends are gone
When the party's over
We will still belong to each other

Underneath Your Clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And all the things I deserve
For being such a good girl honey

I love you more than all that's on the planet
Movin' talkin' walkin' breathing
You know it's true
Oh baby it's so funny
You almost don't believe it
As every voice is hanging from the silence
Lamps are hanging from the celing
Like a lady to her good manners
I'm tied up to this feeling
Underneath Your Clothes
There's an endless story
There's the man I chose
There's my territory
And all the things I deserve
For being such a good girl honey


Rules

Words by: Shakira

Music by: Shakira and Lester Mendez

Daddy's flown across the ocean
leaving just a memory
A snapshot in the family album
Daddy what else did you leave for me
All in all it was just a brick in the wall
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall


The One

Words by: Shakira

Music by: Shakira and Glen Ballard

So I find a reason to shave my legs
Each single morning
So I count on someone
Friday nights to take me dancing
And then to church on Sundays
To plant more dreams
And someday think of kids
Or maybe just to save a little money
You're the one I need
The way back home is always long
But if you're close to me
I'm holding on
You're the one I need
My real life has just begun
Cause there's nothing like
Your smile made of sun
In a world full of strangers
You're the one I know
So I learn to cook
And finally lose my kitchen phobia
So I've got the arms to cuddle in
When there's a ghost or a muse
That brings insomnia

To buy more thongs
And write more happy songs
It always takes a little help from someone

You're the one I need
The way back home is always long
But if you're close to me
I'm holding on
You're the one I need
My real life has just begun
Cause there's nothing like
Your smile made of sun

You're the one I need
You're the one I need
With you my real life has just begun
You're the one I need
Nothing like your smile made of sun
Nothing like your love
Nothing like your love
Nothing like your love


Ready for the Good Times

Words by: Shakira

Music by: Shakira and Lester Mendez

I don't wanna clear the cobwebs from my head
Time will bring them back I bet
So if you hear me say that I believe in love
Don't make me feel ashamed
I used to sing the saddest songs
And while in the meantime roaches used to climb my
Door
Falling back down to the floor
I used to read survival guides
When my world was full of seven legged cats
But here I am with eight more lives
I'm ready for the good times
I'm ready for the good times
Ready to get it on
I'm ready for the good times
I'm ready for the good times
Now that I'm not alone
Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh
You know It
Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh
You better not
Ignore it

I don't wanna look at fashion magazines
While someone does my nails
Sitting here watching other people live
Frozen by the fear to fail
Cause, everyday there's a war to fight
And if I win or lose never mind
As long as you're my shelter every night
I used to cry against a wall
But now I've got a shoulder that I can lean on
Swear to me you won't be gone

I'm ready for the good times
I'm ready for the good times
Ready to get it on

I'm ready for the good times
I'm ready for the good times
Now that I'm not alone

Instrumental


Fool

By Shakira and Brendan Buckley

Tell me lies, slap me on the face, just...
Improvise, do something really clever,
That'll make me hate your name forever
You might swear, you'd never touch a lady
Well, let me say, you're not too far from
Maybe
Every day you find new ways to hurt me

But I can't help it if I'm just a fool
Always having my heart set on you
`Till the time you start changing the rules
I'll keep chasing the soles of your shoes
ahh, fool

God resigned, from hearing my old story
Every night, I'm paying hell for glory
I'm embarrassed but I'm much more sorry

All this pain, begins to feel like
Pleasure
With my tears, you'd make a sea a desert
Salt my wounds and I'll keep saying thank
You

But I can't help it if I'm just a fool
Always having my heart set on you
`Till the time you start changing the rules,
I'll keep chasing the soles of your shoes
Ahh, fool


Te Dejo Madrid

Words by: Shakira

Music by: Shakira, Tim Mitchell and George Noriega

Si ya es hora de esconder
Del mundo el dolor
Bajo la piel
Mas se que estare bien
Los gatos como yo caen de pie
No quiero
Jugar mi suerte por ti
No puedo
Con V pequena vivir
Pronto estare de aqui
Muy muy lejos

Ay me voy otra vez
Ahi te dejo Madrid
Tus rutinas de piel
Y tus ganas de huir
Yo no quiero cobardes
Que me hagan sufrir
Mejor le digo adios
A tu boca de aniz

Si ya es hora de limpiar
Las manchas de miel
Sobre el mantel
Yo nunca supe actuar
Y mis labios se ven
Muertos de sed

No quiero dejarlo todo a lazar
Entiendo
Que he comenzado a estorbar
Pronto estare de ti
Muy muy lejos

Ay me voy otra vez
Ahi te dejo Madrid
Tus rutinas de piel
Y tus ganas de huir
Yo no quiero cobardes
Que me hagan sufrir
Mejor le digo adios

A tu boca de aniz


Poem to a Horse

Words by: Shakira

Music by: Shakira and Luis F. Ochoa

You're too far to bring you close
And too high to see below
Just hangin' on your daily dose
I know you never needed anyone
But the rolling papers for your grass
How can you give what you don't have

You keep on aiming for the top
And quit before you sweat a drop
Feed your empty brain
With your hydroponic pot
Start out playing with yourself
You get more fun within your shell
Nice to meet you but I gotta go my way

I'll leave again `cause I've been waiting in vain
But you're so in love with yourself
If I say my heart is sore
Sounds like a cheap metaphor
So I won't repeat it no more

I rather eat my soup with a fork
Or drive a cab in New York
`Cause to talk to you is harder work

So what's the point of wasting all my words
If it's just the same or even worse
Than reading poems to a horse

You keep on aiming for the top
And quit before you sweat a drop
Feed your empty brain
With your hydroponic pot
I bet you'll find someone like you
`Cause there's a foot for every shoe
I wish you luck but I've other things to do

I'll leave again `cause I've been waiting in vain
But you're so in love with yourself
If I say my heart is sore
Sounds like a cheap metaphor
So I won't repeat it no more


Que Me Quedes Tu

Words by: Shakira

Music by: Shakira and Luis F. Ochoa

Que se arruinen los canales de noticias
Con lo mucho que odio la television
Que se vuelvan anticuadas las sonrisas
Y se extingan todas las puestas de sol
Que se supriman las doctrinas y deberes
Que se terminen las peliculas de accion
Que se destruyan en el mundo los placeres
Y que se escriba hoy una ultima cancion

Pero que me quedes tu y me quede tu abrazo
Y el beso que inventas cada dia
Y que me quede aqui despues del ocaso
Para siempre tu melancolia
Porque yo si que dependo de ti
Y si me quedas ti
Me queda la vida
Que desaparezcan todos los vecinos
Y se coman las sobras de mi inocencia
Que se vayan uno a uno los amigos
Y acribillen mi pedazo de conciencia
Que se consuman las palabras en los labios
Que contaminen todo el agua del planeta
O que renuncien los filantropos y sabios
Y que se muera hoy hasta el ultimo poeta


Eyes Like Yours (Ojos Asi)

English Lyrics by: Gloria M. Estefan

Music by: Shakira, Pablo Flores and Javier Garza

Oh, you know I have seen
A sky without sun
A man with no nation
Saints, captive in chains
A song with no name
For lack of imagination
Ya he...
And I have seen
Darker than ebony
Ya he...
And now it seems, that I
Without your eyes could never be

My one desire, all I aspire
Is in your eyes forever to live
Traveled all over; the seven oceans
There is nothing that I wouldn't give
Came from Bahrein, got to Beruit
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours

Came from Bahrein, got to Beruit
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours
Oh, I have just seen
A woman of means
In rags and begging some for pleasure
Crossed a river of salt
Just after I rode
A ship that's sunk in the desert

Ya he...
And I have seen
Darker than ebony
Ya he...
And now it seems, that I
Without your eyes could never be

My one desire, all I aspire
Is in your eyes forever to live
Traveled all over; the seven oceans
There is nothing that I wouldn't give
Came from Bahrein, got to Beruit
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours

Came from Bahrein, got to Beruit
Looking for someone comparing to you
Tearing down windows and doors
And I could not find eyes like yours


Suerte (Whenever, Wherever)

Words by: Shakira

Music by: Shakira and Tim Mitchell

Suerte que en el Sur hayas nacido,
Y que burlemos las distancias
Suerte que es haberte conocido,
Y por ti amar tierras extranas

Yo puedo escalar los Andes,
Solo, por ir a contar tus lunares

Contigo celebro y sufro todu,
Mis alegrias y mis males

Lero lorebray...sabes que
Estoy a tus pies.

Contigo mi vida,
Quiero vivir la vida.
Y lo que me queda de vida,
Quiero vivir contigo.

Suerte que es tener labios sinceros,
Para besarte con mas ganas

Suerte que mis pechos sean pequenos,
Y no los confundas con montanas

Suerte que herede las piernas firmes,
Para correr si un dia hace falta

Y estos dos ojos que me dicen,
Que han de llorar cuando te vayas

Lero lorebray...sabes que,
Estoy a tus pies

Contigo, mi vida
Quiero vivir la vida.
Y lo que me queda de vida,
Quiero vivir contigo

Lero lorebray...sabes que,
Estoy a tus pies
Lero lorebray
La felicidad tiene tu nombre y tu piel

Contigo, mi vida
Quiero vivir la vida.
Y lo que me queda de vida,
Quiero vivir contigo

Ya sabes mi vida, estoy hasta el cuello por ti,
Y si sientes algo asi, quiero que te quedes junto a mi.


Te Aviso, Te Anuncio (Tango)

Words and Music by: Shakira

Nunca pense que doliera el amor asi,
Cuando se entierra en el medio de un no
Y un si
Es un dia ella y otro dia yo
Me estas dejando sin corazon
Y cero de razon
Ay te aviso y te anuncio que hoy renuncio
A tus negocios sucios
Ya sabes que estoy de ti vacunada
A prueba de patadas
Por ti me quede como Mona Lisa
Sin llanto y sin sonrisa
Que el Cielo y tu madre cuiden de ti
Me voy sera mejor asi.

Se que olvidarte no es asunto sencillo
Te me clavaste en el cuerpo como un
Cuchillo
Pero todo lo que entra ha de salir
Y los que estan tendran que partir
Empezando por mi

Ay te aviso y te anuncio que hoy renuncio
A tus negocios sucios
Ya sabes que estoy de ti vacunada
A prueba de patadas
Por ti me quede como Mona Lisa
Sin llanto y sin sonrisa
Que el Cielo y tu madre cuiden de ti
Me voy,

Talvez tu no eras ese para mi
No se como se puede ya vivir
Queriendo asi

RAP
Estan patetico, neurotico, satirico y sicotico
Tu no lo ves
El tango no es de a tres
Ahi voy planeando escapar y me sale al reves
Pero voy a intentarlo una y otra vez voy

Ay te aviso y te anuncio que hoy renuncio
A tus negocios sucios
Por ti me quede como Mona Lisa
Sin llanto y sin sonrisa
Te aviso que estoy de ti vacunada
Que no me importa nada
Que el Cielo y tu madre cuiden de ti
Ya me voy, ya me fui, es mejor asi
