MP3 Recording of Huachi torito

Huachi torito
(Spanish)

Del arbol nació la rama
De la rama nació la flor
De la flor nació María,
De María el Niño Dios.

Huachito torito
torito del corralito
Huachito torito
torito del corralito.

Al niño recién nacido
todos le ofrecen su don
o soy pobre nada tengo
Le ofrezco mi corazón.

Huachito, torito,
torito del corralito
Huachito, torito,
torito del corralito.

Huachito, torito,
torito del corralito
Huachito, torito,
torito del corralito.

Here’s the English translation of Huachito torito…

Giddy-up, Little Bull
(English)

From the tree was born the branch,
From the branch was born the flower
From the flower was born Mary,
From Mary then Infant God.

Giddy-up! Giddy-up, little bull
Little bull from the little farm.
Giddy-up! Giddy-up, little bull
Little bull from the little farm.

To the new-born baby,
They all give their present
I am poor, I have nothing,
I give him my heart…

Giddy-up! Giddy-up, little bull
Little bull from the little farm.
Giddy-up! Giddy-up, little bull
Little bull from the little farm.

Giddy-up! Giddy-up, little bull
Little bull from the little farm.
Giddy-up! Giddy-up, little bull
Little bull from the little farm.
