Lyrics

El patio de mi casa es particular,
Cuando llueve se moja como los demás.

Agáchate y vuélvete a agachar
Que los agachaditos no saben bailar.

Hache, i, jota, ka, ele, elle, eme, a,
Que si tú no me quieres otra niña me querrá.

Hache, i, jota, ka, ele, elle, eme, a,
Que si tú no me quieres otro niño tendré yo.

Chocolate molinillo,
Corre, corre, que te pillo
Estirar, estirar que el demoño* va a pasar.

*Optional: Change “demoño” to “otro.”

Translation

The courtyard of my house is special,
When it rains, it gets wet as the others do.

Bend down and bend down again
The little ones who bend down don’t know how to dance.

H, I, J, K, L, LL, M, A,
If you don’t love me another girl will love me.

H, I, J, K, L, LL, M, O,
If you don’t love me, another boy I will have.

Chocolate grinder,
Run, run or I’ll catch you,
Stretch, stretch for the devil must pass by. (source)
