But you know how they think when they drink from that Hennessy and cokes
When they drip on my kicks, man, they got me like, uh!
She act like she couldn't hear me right
When I came in the club, all the people go good
I just came in the club just to leave with her
Swizz got to calm me down like, yeah
Money frontin' in the back, say
Found Thunder, what does Shiggy say?
He said he didn't care, then he called her a ?
Drag back in the swing of things
I'm back up in the club but I ain't got to bring my things
And I like the way she shake that thing, yeah
Might be easy for you to break that thing, yeah
And I stay in a New York state of mind
Let me see you dance one more time
The song on the soundtrack goes in this order (Sorry if the Spanish is wrong, I got the lyrics from a website and tried to correct some of them, but I'm not exactly sure what all of them are suppose to be):
Ella se luce por que la vea (throw your hands up)
eah eah eah (throw your hands up)
Se menea se menea (throw your hands up)
Bailando te rodea (throw your hands up)

Baby wanna ride? (You know she'll get it)
Hey baby, wanna ride? (You know you're fated)
Hey baby, wanna ride? (Let's ride)

Baby wanna ride? (You know she'll get it)
Hey baby, wanna ride? (You know you're fated)
Hey baby, wanna ride? (Let's ride)

Tu vas a ver como con este ritmo como se descontrola
Ella se prende sola
Sube la consola 
Pa que la nena mueva la cola
El ritmo letal celestial 
Su cuerpo es brutal el momento fenomenal
Se siente como en viaje espacial
Mueve la excelencia mujer inmortal,
empieza
Avanza y empieza con destreza, 
Tigresa cómele la fresa
Préndete no te quedes tiesa

Ella se luce por que la vea (throw your hands up)
eah eah eah (throw your hands up)
Se menea se menea (throw your hands up)
Bailando te rodea (throw your hands up)

Baby wanna ride? (You know she'll get it)
Hey baby, wanna ride? (You know you're fated)
Hey baby, wanna ride? (Let's ride)

Casi mueve el chasis, tu te medité con el fácil, 
llego el perro inteligente como lace,
Baile pa que nos retraten los paparazzi , oyno te vas en taxi, 
yo nunca muero como las reebook clasic como es 
yo soy el llama así ágil W derriba su oasis 

¿Como eh? ¿Como eh? ¿Sigue bailando y no pare como eh? 
¿Como eh? hay ahay hay 
¿Como eh? ¿Como eh? ¿Sigue bailando y no pare como eh? 
¿Como eh? hay ahay hay

Ella se luce por que la vea (throw your hands up)
eah eah eah (throw your hands up)
Se menea se menea (throw your hands up)
Bailando te rodea (throw your hands up)

Baby wanna ride? (You know she'll get it)
Hey baby, wanna ride? (You know you're fated)
Hey baby, wanna ride? (Let's ride)

Yes I love to dance I don't wanna stop
I can feel the heat, oh it makes me hot
Yes I wanna let go but I'm in control
I'm ready to ride, watch my body go

I know you wanna see me do my dance
Come and check me out as I do my dance
I know you like the way I do my dance
Watch me as I work it, work it

Ella se luce por que la vea (throw your hands up)
eah eah eah (throw your hands up)
Se menea se menea (throw your hands up)
Bailando te rodea (throw your hands up)
