A simple video... but I looove it :)

Did you notice? At the end of the video, when the two girls are leaving the room, you can see a girl's reflection on the right mirror... and then she suddenly disappears!! (thanks Navera Magdy for telling)

Hey guys, so we couldn't air regular programming today due to reasons beyond our control. The girls are still sleeping. I just woke up myself. But it is a beautiful Wednesday and so, if I would try something different... see if it works.

She's got both hands
In her pocket
And she won't look at you (won't look at you)
She hides true love
En su bolsillo
She's got a halo around her finger
Around you

You know that I love you boy
Hot like Mexico
At this point I've gotta choose
Nothing to lose

Don't call my name
Don't call my name
I'm not your babe
I'm not your babe
Don't wanna kiss
Don't wanna touch
Just smoke my cigarette and hush
Don't call my name
Don't call my name

Please, just let me go

Don't call my name
I'm not your babe
I'm not your babe

Ha, ha. That is a work out. Thanks guys. Uhm... well, I'm not quite sure that's gonna air, but if it does, you'll see it. Back to editing. Oh.

BEYOND= Farther away than.
Beyond our control = Out of our control (we are not responsible for it)

I JUST WOKE UP MYSELF= Here, "myself" is not reflexive, it's an emphatic pronoun (used to emphasize the subject: I). The –self pronouns can be reflexive or emphatic:
- I painted myself blue = reflexive (I painted and I was the one painted)
- I painted this picture myself = emphatic (I painted a picture, yea, isn't it great!)

WON'T= Refuses.
The verb WILL may be an auxiliary to form future or a modal to express what you want:
- I will go to Argentina tomorrow (future)
- Will you come to my party (= do you want to come?)
- I don't know where he is and his girlfriend won't tell me (= she doesn't want to tell me)

EN SU BOLSILLO= (Spanish) In her pocket.

HALO= A shining glow, like a light coming out of a head (or a finger in this case !?). Saints in many religions are usually represented with a halo around their heads.

HOT= Very attractive.
Hot like Mexico = You are very attractive, just the same as Mexico (like = comparative preposition.

REJOICE= (formal) Be happy.

I'VE GOTTA...= (coll. esp. AmE) I've got to..., I have to..., I must...

ALEJANDRO= A Spanish name (Mexican in this case), that's why it is pronounced "AlehandRo". Fernando and Roberto are also Spanish names and Lady Gaga pronounces them with a Spanish accent (kind of Cuban for "Alejandro" though).

WANNA= (coll.) Want to.

HUSH= Be quiet, don't say anything.

A WORK OUT= A physical exercise (especially for muscling up).

- Wow, You ARE • the best! = You really are the best!!

GUYS= This last "guys" refers to the other two girls. The word GUY, in singular, means boy or man, but in plural it is often used for both sexes. It is not too common if it's only women, like here, but it's not uncommon either.

GONNA= (coll. esp. AmE) Going to.
