Apparently, the Macarena isn’t as innocent a song as you might think…

Distractify sat a few 90s kids down and schooled them on the true meaning of the song.

Played at school discos and weddings everywhere, it seems like Macarena was having some more “adult” fun…


The song was originally in Spanish, but The Bayside Boys Mix did an english version with these lyrics:

Now don’t you worry about my boyfriend
The boy whose name is Vitorino
I don’t want him
can’t stand him
He was no good so I … ha ha ha ha
Now come on, what was I supposed to do
He was out of town and his two friends were sooo fine


Umm…?! So basically Macarena is about a woman named Macarena who is so bored with her boyfriend that she invites not ONE but TWO of his FRIENDS to cheat on him with her.

Childhood is officially ruined.

WARNING: Some graphic language.

If you need a little reminder of the song we’ve ALL danced to at one time or another, here it is…
