Se baila pegao' como bachata, sin traje y sin corbata
In English: We dance close like in bachata, without a suit and tie.
Bachata is an Afro-Dominican genre of music originally popular among the poor in the country, characterized by an informal nature, sensual dances, and lyrical themes of romance. In this line he likens his poverty to dancing like in bachata, where the important aspects were the people and the music rather than attempting to portray elegance by wearing formal clothes.
