    "Quiero mover el bote" is the title and pretty much the entire lyric of this video: [...]

    Somehow I don't think he wants to move his rowboat.
    1. What does this mean?
    2. Is it appropriate for kids?

    Literally, it says "I want to move the boat." What it is actually saying is "I want to shake my booty / move my body."

    In Mexico "mover el bote" means to dance. It is appropriate for children.
