A Pedro, como era calvo,
Le picaban los mosquitos
Y su padre le decía,
“Ponte el gorro, Periquito,
Que te pican los mosquitos.”

Con el triqui, triquitón,
Una pulga y un ratón
Han salido de un cajón.


Pedro, because he was bald,
He was bitten by mosquitos,
And his father would tell him,
“Put on your hat, Periquito,
Because mosquitoes are biting you.”

With the “triqui, triquitón,” (nonsense words),
A flea and a mouse
Have come out of a drawer.
