Although the official 2014 World Cup song is “We Are One (Ole Ola)” by Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte, Shakira has stepped in, reworking one of her recent singles to create “La La La”, some say thankfully.
The first is more about watching, the second, more about playing- The first features partying and samba dancers, the second features famous players, wild animals and children.
Which one do you prefer? Tell LEM!
We Are One – By Pitbull
Put your flags up in the sky (put them in the sky)
And wave them side to side (side to side)
Show the world where you’re from (show them where you’re from) Show the world we are one (one love, life)
Ole ole ole ola Ole ole ole ola Ole ole ole ola
When the moment gets tough You’ve got keep going One love, one life, one world One fight, whole world, one night, one place Brazil, everybody put your flags in the sky and do what you feel
It’s your world, my world, our world today And we invite the whole world, whole world to play It’s your world, my world, our world today And we invite the whole world, whole world to play
Es mi mundo, tu mundo, el mundo de nosotros Invitamos a todo el mundo a jugar con nosotros
One night, watch the world unite Two sides, one fight And a million eyes Fool hard, it’s gonna work so hard Shoot for the stars, fists rise up towards the sky Tonight, watch the world unite World unite, world unite, world unite For the fight, fight, fight One night, watch the world unite Two sides, one fight And a million eyes Hey, hey, hey Força, força, come on sing with me Hey, hey, hey Ole, ole, come shout it out with me Hey, hey, hey Come on now (x2)
É meu, é seu Hoje é tudo nosso Quando eu chamo o mundo inteiro para jogar é para mostrar que eu posso Torcer, chorar, sorrir, gritar Não importa o resultado vamos extravasar
(It’s mine is yours Today is all ours When I call the whole world to play it’s to show that I can Cheer, cry, smile, scream No matter the outcome, we will overflow)
“La La La” by Shakira
Essa bola vai rolar Tudo é tapete verde Quando a bola chega la Coração fica na rede, na rede, na rede Olá [2x] (This ball will roll In a duel of green carpet When the ball gets there The heart is in the net, in the net, in the net)
La la la la [10x] I dare you Feel how the planet’s Become one Beats like a drum To the same rhythm Hear the whistle Kick the ball The entire world Soars like an eagle In Rio we play Like we dance Only today There’s no tomorrow Leave all behind In this place There’s no space For fear or sorrow Is it true that you want it? Then act like you mean it With everyone watching It’s truth or dare, can you feel it? La la la la la I dare you You have arrived It’s the place No more doubts The time is coming Feel how the planet’s Become one Like a drum Destiny’s calling German, Colombians Spanish and French Off the bench You gotta own it Down here we play Like we dance It’s Brazil And now you know it.
