Don Melitón

Don Melitón tenía tres gatos
y los hacía bailar en un plato
y por las noches les daba turrón,
¡Qué vivan los gatos de Don Melitón!

Don Melitón como era tan chato
le llamaban narices de gato,
pero los gatos se le han escapao
comiendo ratones a medio bocao.

TRANSLATION

Sir Melliter

Sir Melliter had three cats
And he made them dance on a plate,
And in the evening he would give them some nougat,
Long live Sir Melliter's cats!

Since Sir Melliter had such a flat nose,
People would call him cat nose.
But his cats ran away
While eating mice by the mouthful.
