** "Illegal" has the verse "Who would've thought/ That you could hurt me/ The way you've done it/ So deliberate so determined". The song is preceded by "No", the general message of which (you try translate that coherently) is "I can't believe you could hurt me like that, so cruelly". "Illegal" then ends with "I'm starting to believe it should be illegal to deceive a woman's heart." [[CaptainObvious Clearly, she's getting tired of the cheating]].

* CunningLinguist: Along with Spanish and English, she is fluent in the Portuguese from Colombia's neighbor Brazil (where she broke out early in her career), and has shown to know a good portion of French and Italian. Not mention how "Waka Waka" has some verses in an African language.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: In her biography, ''Woman Full of Grace'', she indicates that being barefoot makes her feel like she has removed the facades from her personality and allowed her TrueSelf to shine through.
* DoubleEntendre: "Underneath Your Clothes" to the young ear is about how great the person is inside. To the ear of someone who's been through high school, not so much.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The original pressings of Oral Fixation Vol 2 don't have "Hips Don't Lie" and have its lead single "Don't Bother" as the second track. Both the album and the single failed to live up to sales expectations, and there were very real fears Shakira's career in the West was over. Fortunately, "Hips Don't Lie" was soon after recorded and released on a revised edition of the album that also included the Spanglish version of "La Tortura" that had been a hit in the US. "Hips Don't Lie" was such a huge hit it came to define Shakira's career and ensured most copies of the album you'll find include it.

* LostInTranslation: Even after she became more used to the English language, there is no denying that the Spanish versions of her songs are usually more poetic and original, and rhyme much better.

Also, ''Don't Bother'' repeats the line "I promise you won't ever see me cry" and even though it was released as a single a few weeks before the Oral Fixation Vol. 2 album release, ''How Do You Do?'' was the title track of this, including the repetitive lines "Do you ever cry?/ I sometimes cry", the latter of which is ''confessed'' - just like it was in ''Inevitable'' ('the truth is I cry once a month') and ''Whenever, Wherever'' ('the day you leave will cry a river'), which are both earlier songs.
