Aquel caracol - Mexican Children's Songs - Mexico - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World, Intro Image

Aquel caracol
Que va por el sol
En cada ramita
Que lleva una flor.

Viva la gala*
Viva el amor
Viva la gala
De aquel caracol.

This snail
That goes in the sun
On every twig
That bears a flower.

Long live the elegance,
Long live the love
Long live the elegance
Of this snail.
