1, 2, 3...14?

Ok, so I keep seeing this iTunes commercial on TV featuring a new song from U2. In the beginning of the song, Bono counts off, "Uno, dos, tres, catorce." Now, it's been a long time since I've taken spanish, but isn't that "one, two, three, fourteen?"

Is the song in some whacked out time signature? Is Bono just spanish stupid? Although if that was the case, you'd think that someone around him would've clued him in prior to the release of the song.

I've not heard much more of the song besides what's in the commercial (it seems like a decent song otherwise). Does anything in the song make such a count off make any more sense?
