(Spanish)
Christmas Carol
(English)

Con mi burrito sabanero, voy camino de Belén.
Con mi burrito sabanero, voy camino de Belén.
Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén.
Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén.
Tuquí, tuquí, tuquí, tuquí,
Tuquí, tuquí, tuquí, tu,
Apúrate mi burrito
Que ya vamos a llegar

Tuquí, tuquí, tuquí, tuquí,
Tuquí, tuquí, tuquí, tu,
Apúrate mi burrito
Vamos a ver a Jesús.

With my donkey of the Savannah, I'm going to Bethlehem.
With my donkey of the Savannah, I'm going to Bethlehem.
If they see me, if they see me, I'm going to Bethlehem.
If they see me, if they see me, I'm going to Bethlehem.
Tuquí, tuquí, tuquí, tuquí,
Tuquí, tuquí, tuquí, tu,
Hurry up my donkey,
We are almost there.

Tuquí, tuquí, tuquí, tuquí,
Tuquí, tuquí, tuquí, tu,
Hurry up my donkey,
We are going to see Jesus.
