Spanish Children Songs - El Burrito (English translation)

Spanish

El Burrito

El burrito está llorando
ahija ahija ahija
qué le pasa, qué le duele,
si será que va a enfermar
el burrito está llorando
ahija ahija ahija
pobrecito en la escuela
lo pusieron a estudiar.
 
Tiene que aprenderse bien la lección
y antes de ir a casa saber la "O"
el burrito está llorando
ahija ahija ahija
hay burrito no seas burro
ni tampoco seas llorón.
 
El burrito está llorando
lo dejaron castigado
por ponerse a platicar
el burrito esta llorando
ahija ahija ahija
por tontito lo obligaron
a quedarse sin jugar
y mientras no sepa hacer la "O"
seguirá copiando del pizarrón.
 
El burrito está llorando
hay burrito ya no llores

English translation

The little donkey

The little donkey is crying
ee-aah-ee-aah-ee-aah
what's wrong with him ? why is he hurting ?
Oh, it's gonna make him ill
The little donkey is crying (1)
ee-aah-ee-aah-ee-aah
the poor thing, at school
they made him to study
 
He has to learn the lesson well
And after returning home, know the letter "O"
the little donkey is crying
ee-aah-ee-aah-ee-aah
Oh donkey, don't be such a dumb-bell
And don't be such a crybaby, either
 
The little donkey is crying
They left him there, being punished
For starting to talk (in class)
the little donkey is crying
ee-aah-ee-aah-ee-aah
For his antics, they forced him
to stay out of their game
And as long as he can't produce an "O"
He'll have to write and copy it from the blackboard
 
the donkey is crying
Little donkey, do not cry
 
Translation Mine if no other Translation Source is given. Soon as a "Source" field with a weblink appears below, it is not my translation, but taken from another website.
------------------------------------------------------------
If you have corrections. i will consider them if they are made in a courteous way, including stanza and line, and what it is that needs to be replaced. If you only type one or two words into the comment box, without giving the location, I will simply ignore it.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Another option is you correct the entire song and paste it so I can in turn copypaste it, which is less work for me. You can also take my translation and make your own translation using mine as a basis.
------------------------------------------------------------
If you start a fight over commas, apostrophes, grammar, syntax, lower and upper case, english dialects that you don't understand cause your english is just too poor, as it has now happened for the last couple weeks constantly. I promise you soon as you start monkeying around and bossing me around with your comments that I can't delete. I will delete the translation instead. and Keep it on my computer where it belongs.
