Este galapaguito

Language: Spanish (Español)

Este galapaguito
no tiene mare;
lo parió una gitana,
lo echó a la calle.
No tiene mare, sí;
no tiene mare, no:
no tiene mare,
lo echó a la calle.

Este niño chiquito
no tiene cuna;
su padre es carpintero
y le hará una.

Cette petite tortue

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

Cette petite tortue
n’a pas de mère ;
une gitane l’a mis au monde,
elle l’a jeté à la rue.
Il n’a pas de mère, oui,
il n’a pas de mère, non ;
il n’a pas de mère,
elle l’a jeté à la rue.

Ce petit enfant
n’a pas de berceau ;
son père est charpentier
et lui en fera un.
