Ready to have your childhood ruined? Because the meaning behind the Macarena is actually pretty X-rated.

I imagine that many of us really let loose in our youth, popping some moves to certified bangers like YMCA and the Ketchup song.

Sugar-fuelled school parties might be a distant memory, but if any of the classic songs from back in the day come on it's like we're transported back in time because those dance moves are still stored in our brain somewhere.

But how much do we know about the songs that we got down to? As kids, we probably weren't too attentive to the definition of the lyrics but... maybe we should have been.

One TikTok has shed light onto the old favorite tune - Macarena.

The song, by Los Del Río, has some pretty iconic dance moves that you're probably doing in your head right now as you hum the song.

A lot of the lyrics are in Spanish so kids, or any non-Spanish speaker, probably don't know what they're saying - but the verses happen to be in English and they're pretty wild.

For example - "When I dance, they call me Macarena, and the boys, they say que soy buena, they all want me, they can't have me, so they all come and dance beside me, move with me, chant with me, and if you're good, I'll take you home with me."

Not exactly something that you'd imagine an eight-year-old to be dancing to, right?

During the TikTok, Jake Randall focuses on a small section of the song that reads "Now, come on, what was I supposed to do?He was out of town and his two friends were so fine."

Either we're all very dirty-minded and this is completely innocent, or our fears are true and as kids, we were dancing to sexual songs about cheating.

The famous chorus, which is all in Spanish, roughly translates to wanting to do "good things" to your body, and to give your body "joy".

Safe to say, people were shocked at this revelation, as one person said: "This was playing at my sports day at school and everyone was dancing to it."

A second person said: "The fact when I was 5 they played this song in school," and a third added: "My whole life was a lie."

Nothing can ever just be sweet and innocent, can it?
