I'm not googling any of this stuff, but if you've seen the movie The 40 Year Old Virgin you know what I'm referring to.

The woman with the blond hair that was almost a crew-cut, the boss at the tech store, tells Steve Carrell's character about a gardener named Javier who took her virginity. She sings a song that Javier sang to her. All I got was the last word, "Futbol", which is "Soccer". Does anyone know the translation of the rest of the song?

According to the IMDb trivia section for the movie:

The "beautiful old Guatemalan love song" sung by Javier to Paula translates to:

    When I clean my room
    I can't find anything
    Where are you going in such a hurry
    To the soccer game.

Jane Lynch has told several interviewers that these "lyrics" were really a practice dialogue that she remembered from a high school Spanish class.

The sites containing the lyrics I found (1, 2) say the original Spanish she's singing is:

Cuando limpiado mi cuarto
No encuentro nada
Adonde va con tanta prisa?
Al partido de fútbol

And Google Translate basically agrees with its usual margin of error.
