Canción de cuna

Language: Spanish (Español)

En tu puerta, Teresa,
canta un canario,
échale cañamones
que cante claro.

Cambrú, Cambrú,
serenadito, Cambrú
que a los pies de la cama
llora el niño de la U,
y su madre le dice:
ea, vaya,
calla, no llores,
que viene el bú,
serenadito, Cambú.

Al arrullo, al arrullo,
duerme mi niño;
duerme mi niño duerme,
duerme al arrullo.

Language: French (Français) after the Spanish (Español)

À ta porte, Teresa,
Chante un canari,
Lance-lui des graines
Pour qu'il chante clairement.

Coucou, coucou,
Chantons un peu, coucou,
Car au pied du lit
Pleure l'enfant de la ouh,
Et sa mère lui dit :
Dodo, dodo,
Chut, ne pleure pas,
Car le diable arrive,
Chantons un peu, coucou.

Dodo, dodo,
Mon enfant dort ;
Mon enfant dort, dodo,
Dodo, mon enfant dort.
