Se levantan a las doce
A correr la cortina
Y despues con Guillermina
Siguen su bembe bembeee

My dictionary says that "bembetear" means "to gossip", so does "siguen su bembe" mean "to follow up on gossip" or am I totally mistaken?

Thanks!

Did you copy down the lyrics from something you saw written by someone who knows what the words all mean (the publisher, for example) or are they simply what you hear or think yourself to hear.

I ask because correr is a verb meaning: run, jog or move at a pace faster than that of walking; hurry; gallop; stream; blow; travel; publish.

And cortina is "curtain"....So rather than the latter half coming into question (the bembe part), I might be curious about the first part......

I just copied the lyrics off a lyrics site. I assumed the first two sentences translate as:

They get up at noon to open the curtains

I never stopped to think that this translation might not be correct.

"Bembe" just was a mystery to me. I understood it means "to party" but forgot where I found this translation....
