Ahí está la luna - Mexican Children's Songs - Mexico - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


Alternate Version:

Allá está la luna,
Comiendo aceitunas.
Yo le pedí una,
No me quiso dar.
Saqué el pañuelito,
Me puse a llorar.

English Translation:

There's the moon
Eating olives.
I asked her for one,
She didn't want to give me any.
I took out a tissue,
I started to cry.
