Pinocho fue a pescar

Pinocho fue a pescar
al río Guadalquivir,
se le cayó la caña
y pescó con la nariz.

Cuando llegó a su casa,
nadie lo conocía,
tenía la nariz
más grande que un tranvía.

Su madre toca el bombo,
su padre los platillos,
y al pobre de Pinocho
se le caen los calzoncillos.

TRANSLATION

Pinocchio Went to Fish

Pinocchio went to fish
In the Guadalquivir River,
His fishing rod fell down
And he fished with his nose.

When he came back home,
Nobody knew who he was,
His nose
Was as big as a streetcar.

His mother plays the bass drum,
His father plays the cymbals,
And poor Pinocchio's underpants
Are falling down.
