  • The song contains the lyric "All for one, one for all, fun for everyone," which is later reused on The Ball (the line is a paraphrase of the motto "All for one, one for all" from The Three Muskateers). The same line in Spanish (Una para todos, y todos para uno) is also said by Mayte at the beginning of We March.
