Lyrics

Niño Manuelito ¿que te puedo dar?
Rosas y claveles para deshojar
Desde lejos vengo, oyendo una voz,
En que el ángel dice que ha nacido Dios.

En lecho paja Jesucito esta
Quien ve las estrellas a sus pies brillar
Entre peña y peña he visto una luz
Cunita y almohada del niño Jesús.

Vamos partorcillos, vamos a Belén
A ver a Maria y al niño también,
Suenan las sonajas, suenan tamborcitos
Para divertirlo a nuestro niñito.

A la media noche Jesús nacerá
Y viene trayendo la felicidad
Alegre y contento, feliz bailará
Porque ha nacido el Rey de la paz.

Translation

Niño Manuelito, what can I give you?
Roses and carnations to defoliate
From afar I come, hearing a voice,
In which the angel says that God is born.

In a bed of straw little Jesus is
Who sees the stars at his feet shine
Between rock and rock I have seen a light
Crib and pillow of the child Jesus.

Come on, little shepherds, let’s go to Bethlehem
To see Maria and the child too,
The rattles sound, little drums sound
To entertain our little boy.

At midnight Jesus will be born
And he’s bringing happiness
Cheerful and content, happy he will dance
Because the King of peace has been born.
