We were asked about two Portuguese kids songs. Please let us know if you can help with either song in the comments below. The Portuguese part may be phonetically written.
1. Tan galinhas, tan galinhas
My brother and I are trying to find the lyrics/music to a song our grandmother used to sing when we were little. We think it was something about a chicken but do not know the correct spelling to any of the lyrics. We can type what it sounded like phonetically whenever our grandma sang it to us:
Tan galinhas, tan galinhas
Tan galinhas nuke en tal
Seda cumosh nosh galinhas
Seda cumosh fuzzy mall
Why Why Why seda vie de shaldowee
……… (can’t remember what she sang here)
Ha Ha Ha the Shaldowee.
Not sure that’s enough to go on but … it’s worth a try to see if you might be able to solve this mystery for us!
2. O meu pequeno pequenino
My grandfather sings this song to us, but he can’t translate it or spell the Portuguese words. I did my best to transcribe it, I hope you can help us figure out what the song is! Thanks!
O meu pequeno pequenino,
O my small teeny one,
fui para cama e não "uage?"
was for bed and not "there/found?"
viu uma pulga viu um "kirge?"
saw a flea, saw a "????"
e queda da cama. Bash!
and fell from bed. Bam!
If anyone can help with the lyrics and/or translation of either song, please let us know in the comments below.
