Deep: Being French-Canadian, I can help you with the French words in the first three phrases, which are answers to the question " What am I going to do?": ..., I don't know ..., I don't know anymore ..., I am lost (meaning 'I'm confused" or possibly "I'm done for" Claude

Hola deep. As you probably know, most of what you've quoted are the title and refrain from the song "Me gustas tu" by Manu Chao. The title means "I like you." Claude has already translated the French phrases. "Qué voy a hacer" means "What am I going to do?" I'm not sure, but I think "Qué horas son, mi corazón" means something like "What times are these, my heart." The lyrics are widely available on the Web--for example, here: *__http://www.allthelyrics.com/song/662295/__* You can hear the song performed here: *__http://www.ver-taal.com/can_megustastu.htm__* and the same site offers many more: *__http://www.ver-taal.com/canciones.htm__* I hope that helps.

Hola, Deep! The diminutive suffix -ito implies smallness. It also indicates attractiveness; admiration. You can find out more at http://www.about.com. Search for 'Spanish diminutives'. Then click on the first result. "Qué horas son", means "What time is it?" It's just another way of asking for the time, but it is not widely used.

[quo]*Quote from * C_Norita "Qué horas son", means "What time is it?" It's just another way of asking for the time, but it is not widely used.[/quo] I wondered about that. I've now poked around a bit on the Web, looking for translations of the song. I've found a few. Some translate the line as "What time is it" while others translate it as "What times are these" or "What times these are." I actually like this last one best, since the singer has just said s/he doesn't know what s/he is going to do, and that s/he feels lost. Under these circumstances, saying or exclaiming "What times these are" seems to me to make good sense. Of course, I suppose I could just as easily make an argument for "What time is it," since the song begins and ends with an announcement of the time in various places. Hmmm...the more I think about it, the more I like that. :)
