Yo soy Vicentillo - Puerto Rican Children's Songs - Puerto Rico - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World, Intro Image


Yo soy Vicentillo
Que vengo a cantar
Y al Niño que llora,
Hacerlo callar,
Y al Niño que llora,
Hacerlo callar.

Mi sol sol sol sol,
Mi sol sol sol sol,
No llores, bien mío,
No llores más no
No llores bien mío,
No llores más no.

I am Little Vincent
And I come to sing
And to the child who is crying,
To quiet him.
And to the child who is crying,
To quiet him.

My sun, sun, sun, sun.
My sun, sun, sun, sun.
Don't cry, my love.
Don't cry anymore, don't.
Don't cry, my love.
Don't cry anymore, don't.
