This is like the American children's song "I Like to Eat Apples and Bananas" - where you repeat the same verse over and over again, but on each repetition you make the words have a specific vowel sound (a, e, i, o, u).

The translation is singable.


This song is sung throughout the Spanish speaking world.

Literal Translation:

The sea was calm,
Calm was the sea,
The sea was calm,
Calm was the sea.

This can also be found as "La mar esta salada" (The sea was salted) as in the video below.
