Tengo una muñeca vestida de azul
Con su camisita y su canesú
La saqué a paseo, se me constipó
La tengo en la cama con mucho dolor
Y esta mañanita me dijo el doctor
Que le dé el jarabe con un tenedor
Dos y dos son cuatro
Cuatro y dos son seis
Seis y dos son ocho
Y ocho diez y seis
Y ocho veinte y cuatro
Y ocho treinta y dos
Ánimas benditas me arrodillo yo.
I have a doll dressed in blue
With her little shirt and her lace shawl,
I took her for a stroll and she caught a cold,
I have her in bed in much pain.
This very morning, the doctor told me
To give her some syrup with a fork.
Two and two are four
Four and two are six
Six and two are eight
And eight are sixteen
And eight are twenty four
And eight are thirty two,
I kneel blessed souls.
The children can touch each part of the body as it's mentioned when singing.
