Question Complemento Directo y Indirecto

We write e.g.:

He sings the song to me.
Me canta la canción
Me la canta.

We cannot write it as :
Cántamela or can we?

Yes, you can write that but the meaning would slightly be different. Instead of making a comment that "he sings the song to me," you would be ordering someone to sing you a song. You are using the imperative in your example, so you are giving someone a command - "Sing it to me."

En Asturias por ejemplo en lugar de decir "me la canta" es común oir "cantámela", pero en el resto de España utilizamos "me la canta"
