With shades, a three-piece suit or sport jacket (depending on his party mood) and a deep raspy voice, Pitbull is certainly a king of crunk in his own right. From his early collaboration with Lil Jon, an actual King of Crunk, to later work with J.Lo in "On The Floor," Pitbull makes music that gets the party started. We've already shared with you Pitbull's top 10 songs, but today we take a closer look at his lyrics that make the dance floor irresistible.
This song, featuring Lil Jon, is a Pitbull classic from 2004 that everyone was singing and moving their bodies to whether they spoke Spanish or not. While these lyrics may not be Pitbull's most sophisticated, they are certainly bold. The first line of the chorus, which translates to "hey crazy girl, come here" in English, is the only time a woman could be pulled on the dance floor by first calling her crazy.
Oye loca, ven pa'ca
Oye Loca! Ven pa'ca! Come here!
Muevelo, muevelo sin parar! (Move it, move it without stopping!)
Let's Go! Como!

4. "International Love"
His playboy status never stops as Pitbull shows off his ability to get lovin' anywhere around the globe in "International Love," featuring Chris Brown. He takes the listener from LA to the Venezuela where he has "besito[s] para todas las mujeres" or "kisses for the all the ladies." The whole song shows off his extensive knowledge of each place he visits.
I don't play football but I've touched down everywhere.
I don't play baseball but I've hit a home run everywhere, everywhere.
I've been to countries and cities I can't pronounce
And the places on the globe I didn't know existed.
In Romania she pulled me to the side and told me, "Pit, you can have me and my sister."
In Lebanon, yeah, the women are bomb
And in Greece—you've guessed it—the women are sweet.
Been all around the world but I ain't gon' lie–there's nothing like Miami's heat.
Ever the ladies' man, Pitbull's confidence couldn't be any clearer than in "I Know You Want Me." This song was played in bars all over and the simple chorus, "I know you want me/You know I want ya" repeat 4x, was stuck in everyone's head past last call.
6 to tha clock, on my way to the top uh,
Pit got it locked from brews to the locker,
All I.P uh, big and packer,
That he's not, but damn he's hot,
label fly but Pit wont stop,
got her in the car, quit playin' with his (Como?)
watch him make a movie like Alba Hitch Hock, ha Enjoy Me ant me/You know I what ya"
Featuring Ke$ha, Timber is the ultimate party song with lyrics that don't hold back. Made for both partygoers and lumberjacks alike, the 2010 song is danceable and allows just a few more brag-worthy moments for Pitbull in between.
Look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane
Nah, it's just me, ain't a damn thing changed
Live in hotels, swing on plane
Blessed to say, money ain't a thing
Club jumping like Lebron, now, Voli
Order me another round, homie
We about to climb, wild, 'cause it's about to go down
1. "Time of Our Lives"
Pitbull takes a moment with this party song to relate to the rest of us who aren't famous. Ne-Yo joins in with fun, direct and relatable lyrics to get us all ready to dance.
I knew my rent was gon' be later 'bout a week ago
I work my ass off
But I still can't pay it though
But I got just enough
To get off in this club
Have me a good time, before my time is up
Hey, let's get it now
