Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Danny Ocean:

Me Rehuso

Length: 3:25

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

Ba-Ba-Babylon girl
Ba-Ba-Babylon girl
Para todos aquellos amores que
Que fueron obligados a ser separados
Ba-Ba-Babylon girl
Ba-Ba-Babylon girl
Esta canción es para ti
Dime cómo le explico a mi destino que ya no estás ahí
Dime cómo haré para desprenderme de este frenesí
Esta locura que siento por ti
Con esta química que haces en mí
Y ya no puedo, girl
Ya no puedo, girl
Nena, discúlpame y si te ilusioné yo no lo quise hacer
Sé que en el amor cuando es real ese vuelve, vuelve (vuelve, vuelve)
Pero cómo olvidar tu piel
Y cómo olvidarte mujer
Ya no puedo, girl
Ya no puedo, girl
