"Sung to me by my mom and grandmother for many years." -Alexa

Notes

*"Se durmió" is literally "fell asleep" in English (which doesn't make as much sense so we translated it as "slept"). "Se durmió" is used in Spanish for the sound and to fit the tune.

Alternate Ending:

El sol no salió porque aún no lo oyó.
(English: The sun didn't come out because it didn't hear it.)

Comments

This is sung to the same tune as the German song Der Hahn is tot, and the French song Le coq est mort..
