(Mexican Kids Song)

La pájara pinta
The Spotted Bird
Canción infantil
Children's Song

Estaba la pájara pinta
sentada en un verde limón.
Con el pico cortaba la rama,
con la rama cortaba la flor.
Ay, ay, ay!
Cuándo vendrá mi amor...

Me arrodillo a los pies de mi amante,
me levanto constante, constante.
Dame la mano, dame la otra,
dame un besito sobre la boca.

Daré la media vuelta,
Daré la vuelta entera,
Con un pasito atrás,
Haciendo la reverencia.

Pero no, pero no, pero no,
porque me da vergüenza,
pero sí, pero sí, pero sí,
porque te quiero a ti.

There was a spotted bird
Sitting in a green lemon tree,
With its beak it cut the branch,
With the branch it cut the flower.
Ay, ay, ay!
When will my love come?

I kneel at the feet of my love,
I get up, loyal, loyal,
Give me your hand, give me the other,
Give me a kiss on the mouth.

I'll make a half turn,
I'll make a full circle,
With one step back,
Making a bow.

But no, but no, but no,
Because I'm embarrassed,
But yes, but yes, but yes,
Because I love you.
