Cecilia Campos from Peru sent me a rhyme and a song for Mothers’ Day in Spanish and with English translations. Here’s the rhyme, song, the tune and Cecilia’s comments…

I’m teaching my son a rhyme for Mother’s Day. I created it when I was a teacher, for my first graders. Here it is in Spanish, with an English translation:

A mi Mamá
(Spanish)

Mamita querida
de mi corazon
yo te quiero mucho
con todo mi amor.

For My Mom
(English)

My mommy dearest,
From my heart,
I love you so much,
with all my love.

I put the rhyme to music and it became a song. (Huayno, typical music from the Andes, or sung to the Arroz con Leche tune). It goes like this:

A mi Mamá
(Spanish)

Mamita querida
de mi corazon
yo te quiero mucho
con todo mi amor.

Por eso te traigo flores
por eso te canto yo
por eso te traigo flores
con gran emocion.

Mamita querida
aunque soy chiquito/a
mi amor es grande,
mas grande que el sol.

Por eso te traigo flores
por eso te canto yo
por eso te traigo flores
con gran emocion.

For My Mom
(English)

My mommy dearest,
From my heart
I love you so much,
With all my love.

That’s why,
I bring you flowers.
That’s why,
I sing for you.
That’s why,
I bring you flowers,
With all my heart.

My mommy dearest,
Although I’m little,
My love for you is so big,
Bigger than the sun.

That’s why,
I bring you flowers.
That’s why,
I sing for you.
That’s why,
I bring you flowers,
With all my heart.

Thanks for sending in this nice song and rhyme Cecilia! Thanks also to Susan Pomerantz for playing the Arroz con Leche tune on the piano.

    What artist sing this song and where can you buy it and buy the
    track for it. Thank you! My daughter wants to sing it at a mother’s
    day celebration (Bolivia Mothers Day is May 28th)

    Thanks!

  2. Stephanie Hampton Says:

    Thank you so much! That was very nice of you to put this up. My mother is from Bolivia and she is spending Mother’s day with her mom for the first time ever this Sunday. My Grandma is 84. I plan on singing it with my brother and sister on Sunday. When I try to sing the other spanish it doesn’t fit in the tune….am I missing something?

    Thank you,

    Stephanie
