English, explained by LUPITA ALARCON on Fri, 03/06/2016 - 01:57

No saber ni la 'U' — This phrase comes from a kid's rhyme (the original can be read in the Spanish explanation) that can be translated like this

("borriquito" can either mean "lil' donkey" or "dunce")

A little dunce like you, tututu
you don't even know the [letter] U
A little dunce like you, tututu
I know more than U

No saber ni la 'U' — Vine de la un cântec cu rimează pentru copii.
Lit: Tu nu ştii nici U.

Cântecul tradus:
Măgar că tine, tururu,
Că tu nu stii nici u,
Măgar că tine, tururu,
Eu ştiu mai mult decât tine.

No saber ni la 'U' — Viene de esta cancioncilla que cantaban los niños, a veces porque sí, a veces para llamar tonto a otro:

Borriquito como tú, tururú
que no sabes ni la U
Borriquito como tú, tururú
yo sé más que tú.
