Los Caballitos

 
Corren los caballitos
los grandotes y los chiquitos
porque allá en la caballeriza
la comida se sirvió
tienen ahí su alfalfa
fresca y verde como esmeralda
invitandolos a ponerse un atracón.
 
Todos ellos corren mucho
pero atras uno quedó
un caballo con un callo
que al correr se le inflamó
 
Corren los caballitos
los grandotes y los chiquitos
porque allá en la caballeriza
Doña Paja los llamó.

Todos ellos corren mucho
pero atrás uno quedó
un potrito caprichoso
que al suelo se tiró
 
Corren los caballitos
los grandotes y los chiquitos
porque allá en la caballeriza
Doña Paja los llamó.

The horsies

Versions: #1#2
The horsies they run (1a)
The big ones and the small ones
Because there in the stable
The food has been served
There they get their alfalfa (1)
fresh and green like an emerald
Beckoning them to gorge themselves
 
They all run a lot
but one has been left behind
a horse with a callus (2)
That got infected while it ran
 
The horsies they run
The big ones and the small ones
Because there in the stable
Miss Straw has called for them (3)

fresh and green like an emerald
Beckoning them to gorge themselves
 
They all run a lot
but one has been left behind
a wayward foal
That threw itself onto the ground
 
The horsies they run
The big ones and the small ones
Because there in the stable
Miss Straw has called for them
