Letra Maneater

She'll only come out at night, the lean and hungry type
Nothing is new, I've seen her here before, watching and waiting
Ooh, she's sitting with you but her eyes are on the door

Ela só vai sair à noite, do tipo magro e com fome
Nada é novo, eu já a vi aqui antes, observando e esperando
Ooh, ela está sentada com você, mas seus olhos são a porta


So many have paid to see, what you think you get it for free
The woman is wild, a she-cat tamed by the purr of a Jaguar
Money's the matter, if you're in it for love, you ain't gonna get too far

Assim, muitos pagaram para ver o que você pensa que você obtê-lo gratuitamente
A mulher é selvagem, uma gata domada pelo ronronar de um Jaguar
Dinheiro é o problema, se você está nessa por amor, você não vai chegar muito longe


refrain:
Oh-oh, here she comes, watch out boy, she'll chew you up
Oh-oh, here she comes, she's a maneater
(2x)

refrão:
Oh-oh, lá vem ela, Cuidado rapaz, ela vai te prejudicar
Oh-oh, lá vem ela, ela é uma devoradora de homens
(2x)


I wouldn't if I were you, I know what she can do
She's deadly man, she could really rip your world apart
Mind over matter
Ooh, the beauty is there but the beast is in the heart

Eu não iria se eu fosse você, eu sei que ela pode fazer
Ela é o homem mortal, ela realmente poderia rasgar o seu mundo
Mente sobre a matéria
Ooh, a beleza está lá, mas o animal está no coração


refrain

refrão


Ooh, oh-oh, here she comes, here she comes, watch out boy she'll chew you up
Whoa-oh, here she comes (watch out) she's a maneater
Oh-oh, here she comes (she's a maneater) ooh, she'll chew you up
Oh-oh, here she comes, here she comes, she's a maneater

Oh, oh-oh, lá vem ela, lá vem ela, Cuidado rapaz, ela vai te prejudicar
Whoa-oh, lá vem ela (relógio para fora), ela é uma devoradora de homens
Oh-oh, lá vem ela (ela é uma devoradora de homens) Ooh, ela vai te prejudicar
Oh-oh, lá vem ela, lá vem ela, ela é uma devoradora de homens


Oh-oh, here she comes, (watch out) she'll only come out at night, ooh
Oh-oh, here she comes, here she comes, she's a maneater

Oh-oh, lá vem ela, (relógio para fora), ela só vai sair à noite, ooh
Oh-oh, lá vem ela, lá vem ela, ela é uma devoradora de homens


Oh-oh, here she comes, (she's a maneater) the woman is wild, woo
Oh-oh, here she comes, here she comes, watch out boy, watch out boy
Oh-oh, here she comes, oh, watch out, watch out, watch out, watch out

Oh-oh, lá vem ela, (ela é uma devoradora de homens), a mulher é selvagem, woo
Oh-oh, lá vem ela, lá vem ela, cuidado menino, cuidado menino
Oh-oh, lá vem ela, oh, watch out, watch out, watch out, watch out


Oh-oh, here she comes, (watch out) yeah, yeah, she's a maneater
Oh-oh, here she comes, (she's a maneater) she's watching and waiting, ooh
Oh-oh, here she comes, oh, she's a maneater

Oh-oh, lá vem ela, (cuidado) yeah, yeah, ela é uma devoradora de homens
Oh-oh, lá vem ela, (ela é uma devoradora de homens), ela está observando e esperando, ooh
Oh-oh, lá vem ela, oh, ela é uma devoradora de homens

'Maneater' is a single recorded by American duo Hall & Oates from their 1982 album 'H2O'. It reached number-one on the 'Billboard' Hot 100 chart on December 18, 1982. It remained in the top spot for four weeks, more than any of the duo's five other number-one hits. According to John Oates the inspiration for this song was English model and actress Kelly LeBrock.

In an interview with American Songwriter, Daryl Hall states: John had written a prototype of “Maneater”; he was banging it around with Edgar Winter. It was like a reggae song. I said, “Well, the chords are interesting, but I think we should change the groove.” I changed it to that Motown kind of groove. So we did that, and I played it for Sara (Allen) and sang it for her…[Sings] “Oh here she comes/Watch out boy she’ll chew you up/Oh here she comes/She’s a maneater…and a …” I forget what the last line was. She said, “Drop that shit in the end and go, ‘She’s a maneater,’ and stop! And I said, ‘No, you’re crazy, that’s messed up.’” Then I thought about it, and I realized she was right. And it made all the difference in the song.

The Hall & Oates music video opens with a woman walking down a red staircase, and the band playing in a dimly lit studio with shafts of light projecting down on them. The band members step in and out of the light for their lip sync. A young woman in a short party dress is shown in fade-in and fade-out shots, along with a black jaguar, hence the song line 'The woman is wild, a she-cat tamed by the purr of a Jaguar.' The song refrain is 'Whoa, oh here she comes; watch out boy, she'll chew you up; whoa, oh here she comes, she's a maneater'.

In 2006, the song and its subject matter were adapted and re-interpreted by Nelly Furtado for her song, also called 'Maneater' from her album 'Loose'. The song was sampled once more in 2006 when the Ying Yang Twins (featuring Wyclef and Mr. Collipark) released the song 'Dangerous'. The Hall & Oates version features a saxophone solo by Charles 'Mr. Casual' DeChant. American rapper Hot Karl used the music and chorus of Maneater in a song satirizing the hip hop industry, also called 'Maneater'. In his intro, Karl alludes to the original song's popularity, telling the audience 'I don't want to see any of you really hard guys not singing the words, because I know you know 'em! You don't not know 'Maneater'!' A cover of the song is also used as the theme for the pilot episode of the Adult Swim show 'Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil'. Hall and Oates also appeared on Will and Grace during Grace's wedding to James, singing Maneater as she walked down the aisle.

In 2009, the song appeared on the 'Ballad Of Gay Tony' episode of the X-Box 360 exclusive video game, 'Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City', as a part of the Vice City FM radio station.
