Tengo una vaca lechera
(Uruguayan Kids Song)

Tengo una vaca lechera
I Have a Dairy Cow
Canción infantil
Children's Song

Tengo una vaca lechera
No es una vaca cualquiera
Me da leche meregada
¡Hay que vaca tan salada!
Tolón, tolón.

Un cencerro le he comprado
Y a mi vaca le ha gustado
Se pasea por el prado
Mata moscas con el rabo
Tolón, tolón.

Qué felices viviremos
Cuando vuelvas a mi lado
Con sus quesos, con tus besos
Los tres juntos ¡qué ilusión!

I have a dairy cow,
It's no ordinary cow,
It gives me meringue milk.
Ah! What a nice cow!
Tolon, tolon*.

I bought it a cowbell,
And my cow liked it,
It strolls across the meadow,
It kills flies with its tail.
Tolon, tolon*.

How happy we will live,
When you come back by my side,
With its cheese, with your kisses,
The three of us together, how exciting!


*Tolón, tolón is an onomatopoeia imitating the sound of big bells ringing (= ding dong).
