Los Pollitos (The Little Chicks)

Let's face it, there are really only so many times you can sing "The Itsy-Bitsy Spider" and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" before mommy gets bored...  So today we're going to broaden your lullaby repertoire! This song is just so very cute; it's in Spanish, so it may be a little bit of a challenge at first, but I know you're up for it!!

This video has both the lyrics in Spanish and also the English translation too :)  Listen a few times and try singing along!


Los Pollitos

Los pollitos dicen "pío, pío, pío",
(The baby chicks say "peep, peep, peep")
cuando tienen hambre,
(when they are hungry)
cuando tienen frío.
(when they are cold)
La gallina busca
(The mother hen looks)
el maíz y el trigo,
(for wheat and corn,)
les da la comida,
(she gives them food,)
y les presta abrigo.
(and she gives them shelter)
Bajo sus dos alas
(Under her two wings)
(tucked in and snuggled tight)
hasta el otro día
(until the next day)
duermen los pollitos.
(they sleep all through the night.)

(These lyrics are slightly different from the version in the video, but this is the version that I like the best)

Try it out with your little one, you could even have your child make pictures or create your own hand motions to go with the song!
