Ozuna and Romeo Santos, "El Farsante (Remix)"

Shakespeare's got nothing on these two Romeos.

Ozuna’s “El Farsante” moves up from No. 15 to No. 5 on Hot Latin Songs this week, earning Streaming Greatest Gainer of the week. The song's boost is likely due to the video for the remix featuring Romeo Santos, which premiered Jan. 30 and gained 59 million YouTube views thereafter.

Now, Billboard is taking a closer look at the words behind the duo's impassioned profession of love to the women they miserably failed. Let's just say it's a whole novela, and we're all the way tuned in. 

Verse 1: Romeo Santos

Calculate the relationships that fail

are largely because of disillusion

Falsehood that contaminates and harms

You were the perfect carnation that with my hands I withered

My work again is called "Romeo without Juliet”

You can think I am the king of lies, I would fail again

Even if I swear by my life

My words do not matter nor are they worthy not even on bended knees

They say you've seen many novels, the actor must cry

 

Pre-Chorus: Romeo Santos

No, now what do I do?

Ozuna and I are phonies,

we drown in failure

No, I do not swear in vain

Never will I again be unfaithful

with hoes, I love you

No, listen to the pity that I feel

I'm going to make another album with Aventura

and I dedicate it entirely to you

 

Chorus: Ozuna & Romeo Santos

Baby, if you still love me as before

Nothing else seems interesting to me

I know that in love I am a phony

Without you, I will not fall in love again

baby

 

If you still love me as before

Nothing else seems interesting to me

I know that in love I am a phony

Without you, I will not fall in love again

baby

Verse 2: Ozuna

Without you, I will not fall in love again

I do not even know what to think

I know why everything goes wrong

I lied telling you that I was loyal

You being a real love, I ask God to forgive me

I do not want you to go, let’s try

Why do not we save our relationship?

You know, baby, forgive me, baby

 

Chorus: Ozuna & Romeo Santos

Baby, if you still love me as before

Nothing else seems interesting to me

I know that in love I am a phony

Without you, I will not fall in love again

baby

 

If you still love me as before

Nothing else seems interesting to me

I know that in love I am a phony

Without you, I will not fall in love again

baby

 

Verse 3: Ozuna

I miss your scent in bed (ehh)

The one you leave when you come and go

Where did we leave the kisses and all of our plans (oh-oh-oh)

I do not know if whether to live or die

I'm in a limbo since you left from here (oh-oh-oh)

You're the only person I want to come

on top of me

My freedom I do not want, nor this single life

What I want is that you want the same thing that we all want

Have a bank account with digits and many zeros (ehhh)

To make love daily and spend our money

 

Chorus: Ozuna & Romeo Santos

Baby, if you still love me as before

Nothing else seems interesting to me

I know that in love I am a phony

Without you, I will not fall in love again

baby

 

If you still love me as before

Nothing else seems interesting to me

I know that in love I am a phony

Without you, I will not fall in love again

baby
