Spanish Lyrics to My Favorite English Nursery Rhymes

I love talking to my baby in Spanish, but when it came time to singing him nursery rhymes, I realized I ONLY knew English nursery rhymes. I couldn’t sing one Spanish nursery rhyme to save my life (well, maybe only “Los Pollitos Dicen”). I tried to translate the English nursery rhymes myself, but that was a complete flop. For example, I mistakenly translated “the itsy, bitsy, spider went up the water spout” to “la araña pequeñita subio la alcantarilla,” which basically means the spider went up the sewer pipe … eww!

But luckily, I soon realized a DVD of English nursery rhymes I bought my son also had Spanish captions. Oh my excitement! And not only that, but it actually does a pretty good job of translating the songs. Here are Spanish lyrics to some of my favorite English nursery rhymes. No more trying to make up your own lyrics!

The Itsy Bitsy Spider (La Araña Pequeñita) 

La Araña Pequeñita Subio, Subio, Subio

bajo la lluvia y se la llevo

salió en sol y todo lo seco

y la Araña Pequeñita Subio, Subio, Subio

 

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (Estrellita Que Brillas Mas) 

Estrellita que brillas mas.

Me pregunto como estas.

En el cielo o en el mar.

un diamante de verdad.

Estrellita que brillas mas.

me pregunto como estas.

 

Ring Around the Rosy (Alrededor del Centro)

Alrededor del centro, vamos dando vueltas.

Listos, y todos, caemos ya.

Alrededor del centro, vamos dando vueltas.

Listos, y todos, caemos ya.

Alrededor del centro, vamos dando vueltas.

Listos, y todos, caemos ya.
