The Baby Chicks = Los Pollitos Dicen

Spanish

Los pollitos dicen     (Los po-yee-tos dee-sen)
Pio, pio, pio     (Pio, pio, pio)
Cuando tienen hambre     (Kwando tee-n-en ambrey)
Cuando tienen frio     (Kwando tee-n-en free-o)
La gallina busca     (La ga-yen-a boos-ka)
El maiz y el trigo     (El maze e el tree-go)
Les da la comida     (Les da la ko-me-da)
Y les presta abrigo     (E les presta a–breeg-o)
Bajo sus dos alas     (Baho sus dos alas)
Acurrucaditos     (A-ku-rrr-u-ka-dee-tos)
Hasta el otro dia     (Asta el o-tro dee-a)
Duerman los pollitos     (Dwer-men los po-yee-tos)

La gallina dice     (La ga-yee-na dee-say)
Cloc, cloc, cloc     (Klock, klock, klock)
Cuando canta el gallo     (Kwando kanta el ga-yo)
Cuando sale el sol     (Kwando sa-le el sol)

Bajo sus dos alas     (Baho sus dos alas)
Acurrucaditos     (A-ku-rrr-u-ka-dee-tos)
Hasta el otro dia     (Asta el o-tro dee-a)
Duermen los pollitos     (Dwer-men los po-yee-tos)
La gallina dice     (La ga-yee-na dee-say)
Clock, clock, clock     (Klock, klock, klock)
Cuando canta el gallo     (Kwando kanta el ga-yo)
Cuando sale el sol     (Kwando sa-le el-sol)

English

The little chicks say
Pio, pio, pio
When they’re hungry,
and when they’re cold.
The chicken looks for
corn and wheat.
She feeds them and
covers them with warmth.
Under her two wings
she cuddles them.
The chicks sleep
until the next day.
The chicken says
cloc, cloc, cloy,
when the rooster sings,
when the sun comes out.

Under her two wings
ahe cuddles them.
The chicks sleep
until the next day.
The chicken says
cloc, cloc, cloc,
when the rooster sings
when the sun comes out.

Dance Your Fingers = Bailarse los dedos

English

Dance your fingers up high,
Dance your fingers down low,
Dance your fingers side to side,
And dance them a around.

Dance your fingers on your shoulders,
Dance your fingers on your head,
Dance them on your tummies,
And put them all to bed.

Spanish

Bailarse los dedos alto
Bailarse los dedos abajo
Bailarse los dedos al izquierda y al derecha
Bailarse los dedos en circulos

Bailarse los dedos en sus hombres
Bailarse los dedos en su cabeza
Bailarse los dedos en su estomago
Y pongan los dedos a cama

Good Morning Song
(Tune: Frere Jacques)

English

Good morning, good morning,
How are you?  How are you?
Very well I thank you, very well I thank you,
How about you?  How about you?

Spanish

Buenos dias, Buenos dias,
Como estas?  Como estas?
Muy bien gracias, muy bien gracias
Y usted?  Y usted?

The Itsy Bitsy Spider = La arana pequenita

English

The itsy bitsy spider, Went up the water spout,
Down came the rain, And washed the spider out.
Out came the sun, Which dried up all the rain,
And the itsy bitsy spider, Went up the spout again.

Spanish

La arana pequenita, subio, subio, subio
Vino la Iluvia y se la Ilevo
Salio el sol y todo lo seco
Y la arana pequenita subio, subio, subio.

El barquito chiquitito = The Tiny Boat


SPANISH:

Había una vez un barco chiquito.
Había una vez un barco chiquito.
Había una vez un barco chiquito,
Tan chiquito, tan chiquito, que no podía navegar

Pasaron una, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete semanas (3 veces)
En el barquito, tan chiquito, que no podía navegar.

Los pasajeros de este barquito (3 veces)
Se pusieron, se pusieron, se pusieron a pescar.

Pescaron peces grandes, chicos, y medianos, y… (3 veces)
Se pusieron, se pusieron, se pusieron a cenar.

Y si la historia no les parece larga (3 veces)
¡Volveremos, volveremos, volveremos a cantar!

ENGLISH:
There was once a little tiny boat
There was once a little tiny boat
There was once a little tiny boat
So tiny, so tiny, that it could not sail.

They spent 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 weeks (3 times)
In the little boat, so tiny, that it could not sail.

The passengers of this little boat (3 times)
They started, they started, they started to fish.

They caught big, little, and medium-sized fish, and… (3 times)
They started, they started, they started to eat supper.

And if the story does not to you all seem long (3 times)
We will go back, we will go back, we will go back to sing again!
