This is the Dominican Republic version of a song well-known throughout the Spanish speaking world. The word "Ambosador" is nonsense. It's based on a misunderstanding of the original French song, "Ah mon beau château" (Oh, my beautiful castle).

Notes

This song can also be found as ¿Dónde están las llaves?, "Yo tengo un castillo", Ambó ató, "Ambos a dos", "Ambos ador", "A mambro cható"… All these nonsense phrases are all a mishearing and misunderstanding of the original French song "Ah mon beau château" (Oh, my beautiful castle).

Game Instructions

The children form two rows. While one row goes forward the other row goes backwards and vice-versa. The first row chooses the "page". They go on walking to and fro till the job suits the chosen child. That child then goes between the two rows. The rows form a circle and they all sing the last verse together.
