"La Cucaracha"

English version:

La Cucaracha,
La Cucaracha,
He's a merry little bug.
La Cucaracha,
La Cucaracha,
Scampering across the floor.


Spanish:

La cucaracha,
La cucaracha,
Ya no puede caminar.
Porque no tiene,
Porque le falta,
Una pata para andar.


Translation:

The cockroach,
The cockroach,
Can't walk anymore.
Because he's lacking,
Because he doesn't have,
A foot with which to walk.
