Senorita Lyrics Background

The song was originally conceived during a studio session between Charli XCX, Ali Tamposi, Jack Patterson of Clean Bandit, and Andrew Watt, the latter who produced the song. Watt, prior to the studio session, created a guitar melody that he described as being reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac and Jose Feliciano.

He played the guitar melody during the studio session where ideas for melodies and lyrics were created to accompany it. The melody and lyrics for the chorus of the song eventually formed, including what would become the opening line, “I love it when you call me señorita”.

Watt sent the rough chorus of the song to Shawn Mendes, suggesting that the song be recorded as a duet, to which Mendes agreed and said that Camila Cabello would be “the only person” who he could do the song with. Watt then sent the song to producers Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat who liked it and began to work together on the production of the song, deciding to keep it “simple” to make room for the vocals.

Mendes and Cabello both made changes to the melody and senorita lyrics to their liking. After the song’s key changed and Cabello recorded some vocals, Watt flew to England and planned to record Mendes’ vocals on a day off from his tour after his Manchester Arena show.

However, Watt, to Mendes’ amusement, accidentally blew the microphone by forgetting to change the conversion of power to 220 on the power box. This forced Watt to record Mendes’ vocals at the Birmingham Arena, angering Mendes throughout the process because he wanted to preserve his voice for his then-upcoming shows at the O2 Arena.

Mendes and Cabello had worked together on writing senorita lyrics through FaceTime until they met up at a studio a mere few weeks before the song was released. Cabello had been tweaking senorita lyrics and recorded vocals multiple times.

Cabello conceived the lyric, “You say we’re just friends but friends don’t know the way you taste”, as the song was already in the process of being mixed, forcing Mendes to record new vocals and sing new harmonies. Their chemistry in the studio was lauded by producer Benny Blanco, who praised their talent and “energy in the room”.

Senorita Lyrics lyrics

I love it when you call me señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn’t need ya
But every touch is ooh la la la
It’s true, la la la
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you keep me coming for ya
Land in Miami
The air was hot from summer rain
Sweat dripping off me
Before I even knew her name, la la la
It felt like ooh la la la
Yeah, no
Sapphire moonlight
We danced for hours in the sand
Tequila sunrise
Her body fit right in my hands, la la la
It felt like ooh la la la, yeah
I love it when you call me señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn’t need ya
But every touch is ooh la la la
It’s true, la la la
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you know I love it when you call me señorita
I wish it wasn’t so damn hard to leave ya
But every touch is ooh la la la
It’s true, la la la
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you keep me coming for ya
Locked in the hotel
There’s just some things that never change
You say we’re just friends
But friends don’t know the way you taste, la la la
‘Cause you know it’s been a long time coming
Don’t you let me fall, oh
Ooh, when your lips undress me
Hooked on your tongue
Ooh love, your kiss is deadly
Don’t stop
I love it when you call me señorita
I wish I could pretend I didn’t need ya
But every touch is ooh la la la
It’s true, la la la
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you know I love it when you call me señorita
I wish it wasn’t so damn hard to leave ya
But every touch is ooh la la la
It’s true, la la la
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you keep me coming for ya
All along I’ve been coming for ya
And I hope it meant something to ya
Call my name, I’ll be coming for ya
Coming for ya, coming for ya, coming for ya
For ya (oh, she loves it when I come)
For ya
Ooh, I should be running
Ooh, you keep me coming for ya
