Batatinha Quando Nasce - Brazilian Children's Songs - Brazil - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Notes

Ana Flores wrote, "I would like to contribute with another version of 'Batatinha Quando Nasce'."

Batatinha quando nasce
Se esparrama pelo chão
Mamãezinha quando dorme
Põe a mão no coração

Translation
When little potato sprouts
It spreads all upon the ground
When mummy sleeps
She puts her hand upon her heart.

Thanks and Acknowledgements

Many thanks to Rosa Clement for contributing this "trova" with its translation. A "trova" is a lyrical composition, often in four lines, that's light and in a popular folk style. Many thanks also to Ana Flores for the second version of the song. Thanks to Sarina for the great drawing!

Obrigada!
