Cinco de la mañana tú me llamas
Solo pa' ver quien está en mi cama
Yo no tengo tiempo pa' tus dramas
A mí no me llames a la cinco de la mañana
Five in the morning you call me
Just to see who is in my bed
I don't have time for your drama
Don't call me at five in the morning

Sabes que amarme siempre ha sido solo un juego
Dices te quiero y no te creo
Porque lo nuestro nunca ha sido amor del bueno
Solo me se sufrir
You know that loving me has always been just a game
You say I love you and I don't believe you
Because ours has never been good love
I only know how to suffer

Aquí es que esto se termina
Un poco de tu propia medicina
A mí no me vengas a buscar
Que no te voy a contestar
Here is where this ends
A little bit of your own medicine
Don't come to look for me
Because I'm not going to answer you
