Ya llegan las monjas

Ya llegan las monjas
Caminito de Peronja
No pueden pasar
Por el río de la mar
Pase una, pasen dos
Pase la madre de Dios
En su caballito blanco
Alumbrando todo el campo
Campo mayor de San Salvador
Ya llega Perico
Tocando el pitico
Si no lo toca bien
¡Que le den, que le den
Con el culo de la sartén!

TRANSLATION

Here Come the Nuns

Here come the nuns
On Peronha Way,
They can't cross
The river that leads to the sea.
Let one pass, let two pass,
Let God's mother pass
On her little white horse
Lighting up the whole field,
The largest field of San Salvador.
Here comes little Peter
Playing the whistle,
If he doesn't play it well
Let him be spanked, let him be spanked
With the bottom of a frying pan!
