J Balvin & Tainy’s ‘Agua’ Is an Underwater Party For the Whole Family: English Lyric Translation

Who would have ever thought that a timeless children’s song fused with reggaeton would make sense? Tainy and J Balvin made it work.

“Agua,” released in July by Paramount Animation, Nickelodeon, and NEON16, laces the iconic SpongeBob intro with a party-starting reggaeton, bass, and flute melody, making it the go-to summer song for the entire family. In the playful lyrics, Balvin gives a shout out to some of the iconic characters of the franchise.

The collaboration is the lead single off the forthcoming SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run movie soundtrack, which was executive produced by award-winning producer Tainy and renowned industry leader Lex Borrero.

On the Billboard charts, “Agua” enters the top 10 for the first time at No. 7 on the Hot Latin Songs chart dated Aug. 8. It also hits the top 10 on Latin Airplay.

Check out the complete lyrics translated to English below:

This is a party that’s underwater
Baby, get your umbrella
We’re dancing like fish in the sea
Like fish in the sea
Nighttime doesn’t exist, neither does daytime
Keep the party going here
Every time she passes, she winks at me
Sweet like a pineapple
This is a party that’s underwater
Baby, get your umbrella
We’re dancing like fish in the sea
Like fish in the sea

That’s how it is, under the sun
Let’s go to the water because it’s hot
She said she saw me on TV
She recognized me, she wasn’t wrong
And I know you, Squidward
C’mon, smile, we’re having a good time
We’re with Gary
Having a party
We’re at Bikini with all the ladies

I can be under the ocean
And under the ocean, you will find me
I see you’ve been wanting to dance for a while
Don’t change the subject

This is a party that’s underwater
Baby, get your umbrella
We’re dancing like fish in the sea
Like fish in the sea
Nighttime doesn’t exist, neither does daytime
Keep the party going here
Every time she passes, she winks at me
Sweet like a pineapple

Very strong without exercise
But you can tell when I’m dancing
It’s so hot that I suffocate
I’m a star but I’m not Patrick, no
Shake off the sand, Sandy Cheeks
And smile because you look beautiful, wow, picture-perfect
Dance happy on the dance floor
Under the sun, so you get tanned, there’s a party

I can be under the ocean
And under the ocean, you will find me
I see you’ve been wanting to dance for a while
Don’t change the subject

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
SpongeBob SquarePants, you know what I mean?
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
SpongeBob SquarePants, you know what I mean?

(No hay party, party
No hay party
Baby, look for your umbrella
I like it, I like it as if it were water
as if it were water)
J Balvin, man
Tainy
Mosty, ma’
