"Las Mañanitas" is also sung in Mexico. There are also other versions of this song.

The version that Celia sings on the mp3 is slightly different from above:

Éstas son las mañanitas
Que cantaba el rey David
Y en el día de tu santo
Te las cantamos a ti.

Despierta mi bien despierta
mira que ya amaneció
Ya los pajaritos cantan
La luna ya se metió

English Translation:

These are the little mornings,
That King David used to sing,
And on the Day of your Saint,
We sing them to you.

Wake up, my dear, wake up!
Look, it's already dawning,
The little birds are already singing,
The moon has gone away.



Many thanks to Celia Andrés for singing this song for us!
