El barco chiquitito

Había un barco chiquitito
Había un barco chiquitito
Que no podía, podía navegar
Que no podía, podía navegar
Oé oé oé oé…

Pasaron cinco o seis semanas
Pasaron cinco o seis semanas
Y no había nada que comer
Y no había nada que comer
Oé, oé, oé, oé….

Y se comieron sus botines
Y se comieron sus botines
Con salsa roja, roja y una nuez
Con salsa roja, roja y una nuez
Oé, oé, oé, oé…

Y se pusieron muy malitos
Y se pusieron muy malitos
Y se tuvieron, tuvieron que volver
Y se tuvieron, tuvieron que volver
Oé, oé, oé, oé.


TRANSLATION

The Tiny Ship

There was a tiny ship
There was a tiny ship,
That couldn't, couldn't sail
That couldn't, couldn't sail,
Oh eh, oh eh, oh eh, oh eh…

Five or six weeks went by
Five or six weeks went by,
And nothing was left to eat
And nothing was left to eat,
Oh eh, oh eh, oh eh, oh eh…

So they ate their boots
So they ate their boots,
With red sauce and a walnut
With red sauce and a walnut,
Oh eh, oh eh, oh eh, oh eh…

They were very sick
They were very sick,
And had to go back
And had to go back,
Oh eh, oh eh, oh eh, oh eh…
