Em                              C
Tú, tú eres el imán y yo soy el metal
                                  G
Me voy acercando y voy armando el plan
                                D
Solo con pensarlo se acelera el pulso (Oh yeah)
Em                                C
Ya, ya me está gustando más de lo normal
                               G
Todos mis sentidos van pidiendo más

Esto hay que tomarlo sin ningún apuro.

[Chorus]
        Em
Despacito

Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito

                             G
Firmo en las paredes de tu laberinto
                                D
Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito
       
(Sube sube sube, sube sube)

                D
Tus lugares favoritos (favorito, favorito baby)
Em                              C
Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro
                    G
Hasta provocar tus gritos
                    D
Y que olvides tu apellido.

[Verse]
                         Em
Si te pido un beso, ven dármelo
      
Yo sé que estás pensándolo
                   C
Llevo tiempo intentándolo
        
Mami esto es dando y dándolo
                G
Sabes que tu corazón conmigo te hace bom bom
                D                            
Sabes que esa beba está buscando de mi bom bom
                  Em
Ven prueba de mi boca para ver como te sabe
                       C
Quiero quiero, quiero ver cuanto amor a ti te cabe
             G
Yo no tengo prisa yo me quiero dar el viaje
            D 
Empezamos lento, después salvaje.

[Bridge]
           Em
Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
              C
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito
              G 
Cuando tú me besas, con esa destreza
                D           
Veo que eres malicia, con delicadeza
           Em        
Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito
             C
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito
              G
Y es que esa belleza, es un rompecabezas
            D
Pero pa' montarlo aquí tengo la pieza. (Oye!)

[Chorus]

[Verse]
     Em
Despacito,
                                   C
This is how we do it down in Puerto Rico,
                                      G
I just wanna hear you screaming “Ay, bendito!”,
                                    D
I can move forever cuando estoy contigo. (Bailalo!)

Hasta provocar tus gritos (Fonsi)
               D
Y que olvides tu apellido (DY)
       Em
Despacito.

LYRIC GUIDE FOR NON-SPANISH SPEAKER:

Note: Luis Fonsi's original version translated to English 
      to help non-spanish speakers feel the song's emotion.


“Despacito” or “Slowly” 

Fonsi:

Sí, sabes que ya llevo un rato mirándote,
Tengo que bailar contigo hoy.
Vi que tu mirada ya estaba llamándome,
Muéstrame el camino que yo voy.

Yes, you know I’ve been looking at you for a while,

I have to dance with you today.

I saw that your look was already calling me,

show me the way and I’ll go. 

¡Oh!
Tú, tú eres el imán y yo soy el metal.
Me voy acercando y voy armando el plan,
sólo con pensarlo se acelera el pulso.
Ya, ya me está gustando más de lo normal.
Todos mis sentidos van pidiendo más,
Esto hay que tomarlo sin ningún apuro.

Oh!

You, you’re the magnet and I’m the metal.

I’m getting closer and coming up with a plan,

just thinking about it accelerates my pulse.

I’m already enjoying it more than normal.

All of my senses are asking for more,

this has to be done without a hurry.

[Chorus]
Despacito
Quiero respirar tu cuello despacito.
Deja que te diga cosas al oído,
para que te acuerdes si no estás conmigo.
Despacito
Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito.
Firmar en las paredes de tu laberinto
y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito

Quiero ver bailar tu pelo, quiero ser tu ritmo
Que le enseñes a mi boca, tus lugares favoritos.
Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro,
hasta provocar tus gritos
y que olvides tu apellido

[Chorus]
Slowly

I want to breathe your neck slowly.

Let me whisper things in your ear,

that you’ll remember when you’re not with me.

Slowly

I want to undress you with kisses slowly.

Sign the walls of your labyrinth

and turn your body into a manuscript.  


I want to see your hair dance, I want to be your rhythm

I want you to show my mouth your favorite places.

Let me surpass your danger zone,

until it makes you scream

and makes you forget your last name. 


Daddy Yankee:

Si te pido un beso, ven, dámelo. Yo sé que estás pensándolo.
Llevo tiempo intentándolo, mami, esto es dando y dándolo.
Sabes que tu corazón conmigo te hace bam-bam.
Sabes que esa beba está buscando de mi bam-bam.
Ven, prueba de mi boca para ver cómo te sabe.
Quiero, quiero, quiero ver cuánto amor a ti te cabe.
Yo no tengo prisa, yo me quiero dar el viaje.
Empezamos lento, después salvaje.

Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito.
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito.
Cuando tú me besas con esa destreza
veo que eres malicia con delicadeza.
Pasito a pasito, suave suavecito.
Nos vamos pegando, poquito a poquito.
Y es que esa belleza es un rompecabezas,
pero pa’ montarlo aquí tengo la pieza.
¡Oye!

If I ask you for a kiss, come on, give it to me. I know you’re thinking about it.

I’ve spent a while trying, mami, this is give and giving.

You know your heart with me goes bam-bam.

You know what this babe wants from me is bam-bam.

Come, taste my mouth to see how it tastes to you.

I want, want, want to see how much love fits in you.

I’m in no rush, I want to take the ride.

We’ll start slow and then go wild. 


Step by step, gentle gently.

We’ll get closer, little by little. 
When you kiss me with that skill,

I see that you are malice with finesse. 

Step by step, gentle gently.

We’ll get closer, little by little.
This beauty is a puzzle,

but to put it together I have the piece. 
Oye!

[CHORUS, 2x]

Luis Fonsi:
Despacito
Vamo’ a hacerlo en una playa en Puerto Rico,
hasta que las olas griten “¡Ay, Bendito!”
para que mi sello se quede contigo.
¡Bailalo!

Slowly

We’re going to do it on a beach in Puerto Rico,

until the waves scream “Oh, Lord!”

so that my seal [likely meaning mark or impression] stays with you.

Dance!

Awesome sheet, but the lyrics are from Justin Bieber's appropriation of the song, FYI

Pretty much nailed it with the latino arpeggio, should have put the intro riff before the latino arpeggio to create better order within the tab. Also the other alternative strumming pattern would be a great addition. Over all great tab.
