Contemporary Spanish song

Can't Post | Private Reply
For the last couple of months, I have heard a song on Spanish radio and with my limited Spanish skills I believe the title is something like " Mariposa Traesonera ". I cannot find the second term in my dictionary and have no idea who is the artist who sings it or on which of their CDs it would be found. Any help on the title meaning or the artist would be appreciated.

The name of the song is 'Mariposa Traicionera'; the artist is Maná. The title means "Traitorous Butterfly'. The tune is really great, isn't it, and the words are just as good. Here they are for you to translate:

Mariposa Traicionera

Eres como una mariposa
vuelas y te posas vas de boca en boca
facil y ligera de quien te provoca

Yo soy raton de tu ratonera
trampa que no mata pero no libera
vivo muriendo prisionero
Mariposa traicionera
todo se lo lleva el viento
Mariposa no regreso

Ay, mariposa de amor, mi mariposa de amor
Ya no regreso contigo
Ay, mariposa de amor, mi mariposa de amor
Nunca jamas junto a ti
vuela amor, vuela dolor
y no regreses a un lado
ya vete de flor en flor
seduciendo a los pistilos
y vuela cerca del sol
pa'que sientas lo que es dolor

Ay, mujer como haces daño
pasan los minutos cual si fueran años
mira estos celos me estan matando

Ay, mujer que facil eres
abres tu alitas, muslos de colores
donde se posan tus amores
Mariposa traicionera
todo se lo lleva el viento
mariposa no regreso

Ay, mariposa de amor, mi mariposa de amor
Ya no regreso contigo
Ay, mariposa de amor, mi mariposa de amor
Nunca jamas junto a ti
vuela amor, vuela dolor
que tengas suerte en tu vida
ay, ay, ay, ay, ay dolor
yo te llore todo un rio
ay, ay, ay, ay, ay amor
tu te me vas a volar

Hi...

For me (and I suppose for many), understanding what's being said in a song is very difficult - the sung word, much more than the spoken, is tough to parse. And then add in the fact that the lyrics are often "poetical" and thus not grammatical.

Julieta Venegas' newest album, "Sí", is surprisingly "hearable" - clear and simple lyrics, fairly well enunciated throughout.

Plus - what a great album!!

...and the album is Revolución De Amor.

Looks like the 30 second mp3 sound snippet is too big to upload, so here's a link to a sucky Real Audio format sample.
