This song comes from the French song "Ah mon beau chateau" (as does ¿Dónde están las llaves?"). The phrase "Ambó ató" resembles a Spanish kid mimicking the sound of the French line, "Ah mon beau (Ambó) chateau (ato)".

*The actual spelling of the word is "paje" and it's stressed on the first syllable.
