Luna, lunera, cascabelera
(Peruvian Kids Song)

Luna, lunera, cascabelera
Moody, Thoughtless Moon
Canción infantil
Children's Song

Luna, lunera, cascabelera,
Cinco pollitos y una ternera,
Sal solecito, caliéntame un poquito,
Por hoy y por mañana por toda la semana.

Moody, thoughtless moon,
Five chicks, a calf and a loon,
Come out little sun, warm me like no one,
For the dawn and the morning, for the night and the evening.


The translation is singable to the tune.

The literal translation goes:

Moody, thoughtless moon,
Five chicks and a she-calf,
Come out little sun, warm me a little,
For today and for tomorrow and for all week long".


Rossi's grandma used to sing it this way.
