Arbor - This one's a gangster language referring to a fraternal demand or possession owned by another.


Astig - If you reverse this word, you'll get "tigas" which means admirable and can be taken literally as "hard".


Badap - Gay


Bebot - Girl


Cariño Brutal - Familiar with Slapshock's Cariño Brutal? Well this means like "killing me softly" which now reminds us of another song.
