Yep, by Gershwin. Now THAT would be a hard song to translate: "You say tomayto and I say tomahto, ..." Maybe we could go with "Tú dices nareese, y digo nareeth." hehe

To call off would normally translate as follows

cancelar or suspender, say to call off or cancel a meeting or a race.
anular, say to call off or cancel a deal
abandonar, say to call off or cancel a search

So as you can see, as James has pointed out, the context of what you are calling off would dictate the translation required.

I think the Spanish translation will depend on the overall context. The English means "let's stop doing what we have been doing or have been planning," and that can be expressed in several ways, again depending on the context. Is it a wedding? A romance? A football game? A business deal? And so forth.

By the way, it's "let's."
