Caballito Blanco

Caballito blanco,
llévame de aquí,
llévame a mi pueblo
donde yo nací.

Tengo, tengo, tengo,
tú no tienes nada,
tengo tres ovejas
en una cabaña. 

Una me da leche,
otra me da lana,
y otra, mantequilla
para la semana.


Little white horse,
Take me away.
Take me to the town,
Where I was born.

I have, I have, I have,
You have nothing.
I have three sheep,
In a cabin.

One gives me milk,
Another gives me wool,
And another, butter,
A whole week’s worth.
