Well, Eddy, you have piqued my curiousity.

You suggested the use of llevarse. But, is this a situation where a reflexive verb is not correct. It is not as though the speaker is acting upon themself.

It looks to me more like a (subtle) imperative as in "Hey, you! Take me away." Should it be translated as "Me lleva de aquí, mi guapo."

What do you think??

Regards/Recuerdos,

Moe

Llevarse is not a reflexive verb, it is a pronominal verb. My example is in the imperative form, llévame. - Eddy, OCT 23, 2009
I must admit I prefer mi guapo. - Eddy, OCT 23, 2009
I thought " Llévame" and "me lleva" were pretty much the same thing! - Valerie, OCT 23, 2009
O.K. Eddy. I forgot this - Attaching the Direct Object Pronoun - In the case of affirmative commands you can attach the direct object pronoun to the end of the verb, or you can put it before the first verb. - Moe, OCT 24, 2009

This phrase will not work with the translation facilities. I think to take someone away from somewhere could be translated using Llevarse de cualquier sitio. So as a guess I would think a translation could be "llévame de aquí apuesto hombre". Hopefully a native speaker will come up with something colloquial.
