A song by the Guatemalan singer/songwriter Ricardo Arjona, from his 1998 album Sin daños a terceros (Without harming third parties). Probably his best album to date, great lyrics. He has a couple of songs that are very funny, with very original and bizarre metaphors and similes, even in some of his most sentimental songs, for example Olvidarte (To forget you):

...más difícil que fumarse un habano
en American Airlines,
olvidarte, es tan difícil olvidarte.

...to forget you is harder than smoking a cuban cigar in an American Airlines flight.

In any case, the first four verses of the song Desnuda. My full english translation follows:

No es ninguna aberración sexual
pero me gusta verte andar en cueros
al compás de tus pechos aventureros
víctimas de la gravedad
Será porque no me gusta la tapicería
que creo que tu desnudez es tu mejor lencería.

Por eso es que me gustas tal y como eres
incluso ese par de libras de más
si te viese tu jefe desnuda y detrás
no dudaría en promover tu cintura
deja llenarme de tu desnudez
para afrontar tus disfraces de afuera
de una mejor manera...

Desnuda, que no habrá diseño que te quede mejor
que el de tu piel ajustada a tu figura
Desnuda, que no hay un ingenuo que vista una flor
sería como taparle la hermosura
Desnuda, que la naturaleza no se equivoca
y si te hubiese querido con ropa,
con ropa hubieses nacido.
Deja llenarme de tu desnudez
para vestirme por dentro
aunque sea un momento.

Ahora que por fin te tengo así
desnuda y precisamente en frente
desnuda también un poquito la mente
pon tus complejos junto de tu ropa
Y se te sientes un poquito loca
ponte loca completa
que verte será solo el inicio
antes de perder el juicio...


English translation:

It's not a sexual abberation,
but I like to see you walking naked
to the beat of your adventurous breasts
victims of gravity.
Maybe it's because I don't like upholestry
that I think your nakedness is your best lingerie.

That's why I like you just the way you are,
including those few extra pounds
If your boss saw you naked, and from behind
he wouldn't doubt in promoting your waist.
Let me fill myself with your nakedness
so that I can deal with your costumes for outside
in a better way.

Naked, there is no fashion design that will look better on you
than your skin wrapped tightly around your figure.
Naked, there is no fool that would dress a rose,
it'd be concealing its beauty.
Naked, there are no mistakes in nature
and if it had wanted you clothed,
you would've been born clothed.
Let me fill myself with your nakedness
to warm my soul up
even if it's just for a moment.

And now that I finally have you like this,
naked and right in front of me,
undress as well your mind a little
leave your insecurities right by your clothes
And if you feel a little crazy
then just go completely crazy
because seeing you is only the beginning
before we lose our minds.

Naked, there is no fashion design that will look better on you
than your skin wrapped tightly around your figure.
Naked, there is no fool that would dress a rose,
it'd be concealing its beauty.
Naked, there are no mistakes in nature
and if it had wanted you clothed,
you would've been born clothed.
Let me fill myself with your nakedness
to warm my soul up
even if it's just for a moment.



And finally, two years after I signed up for the first time, I am a level 2 noder! It'll probably take me three to get to level 3, heh.
