Boobie Spanglish

Little Man had Spanish camp all of last week and apparently, one of the things he learned was this song titled "Hola Amigos." I was not provided the lyrics by the camp teacher, so I have no idea what the words are actually supposed to be and my Spanish is so rusty at this time that it's hard for me to guess the real lyrics, but I'm thinking the second line of the song isn't actually "boobies," because in the three months I spent in Barcelona when I was 18, at no point was I greeted with the words "Hola, amiga! Boobies!" But Spaniards are more uppity and formal than Mexicans, so maybe it's just a cultural difference.

Okay so I totally made out the words boobies. And g'day?
Either way he can sing anything and be cute.

I heard "boobies abajo". Do you think he's telling you your boobies are sagging? : ) (which I'm sure they are not but it was funny those two words are together)

Also - how cute is LM!?

Oh my god, I just spontaneously ovulated.

And I would drop boobies into foreign songs more often myself, if I could. Just sayin'.

DAM! Julie beat me to it. I heard "boobies abajo" & thought he was insulting your saggers, too. Drat that I didn't say it first.

according to the lewd day workers, Hola amigo boobies is a very common greeting in Mexico and Central America. At least from what I can tell.

And where he's asking to look at the display of your camera??? Hilarious...we have at least two or three videos of Gavin doing the same thing, except he says, "I can't SEEE!" and tries grabbing the camera to flip it around.

I think the line is "Boogie para abajo" but I like his version much better.

Gadammit. That fancy Spanish Translation degree is useless. I can't translate Toddlerese and Spanish at the same time. Gadammit.
