Los pollitos -
(Spanish Kids Song)

Los pollitos
The Chicks
Canción infantil
Children's Song

Los pollitos dicen
Pío, pío, pío
Cuando tienen hambre
Cuando tienen frío.

La gallina busca
El maíz y el trigo
Les da la comida
Y les busca abrigo.

Bajo sus dos alas
Se están quietecitos
Y hasta el otro día
Duermen los pollitos.

The chicks say
Pio, pio, pio
When they're hungry
When they're cold.

The hen looks for
Corn and wheat
She gives them food
And seeks shelter for them.

Under her two wings
They stay very still
And until the next day
The chicks sleep.


This is slightly different from the Costa Rica version.
