Carilus wrote asking for help with a Puerto Rican kids song about a little cow. Here’s the email…
Hi, my name is Carilu. I grew up in Puerto Rico and I’m beyond thankful for the songs that you have in in mamá lisa page. Some I had forgotten but they came right back!
So there was a song I learned when I was in first grade called la vaquita (the lil cow). It was one of my favorites and I hope you can confirm it with other people.
Yo tenía una vaquita, yo tenía una vaquita
Dentro de un corral, dentro de un corral,
Que me daba buena leche, x2
Para yo tomar, x2
Un día la lleve al campo, x2
Y se me perdió, x2
Es que había un enanito, x2
Y me la robo, x2
Si yo cono ese enanito, x2
Que pela le doy, x2
Adios mi Linda vaquita, x2
No te olvidaré, x2
I don’t remember if it came from a book or lesson we were reading. Thanks for your time and I hope someone can recognize it and confirm it.
All I was able to find is this YouTube video that’s similar to the 1st line…
If anyone recognizes this song, can confirm the lyrics and/or has any information about it, please let us know in the comments below. Thanks in advance! -Mama Lisa
