De México ha venido - Mexican Children's Songs - Mexico - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


*"Las viejas" is not really a nice term for old ladies. It doesn't have a sense of respect. Yet it's not as mean as calling someone an "old hag".
**Barabbas is a figure in the Bible. He was a prisoner at the same time as Jesus. Pontius Pilate was able to free one prisoner at the Passover Feast. He chose to free Barabbas instead of Jesus.
