Pato patito

Lyrics - Spanish

(Folk song from Panama)

Pato, patito, pato patuleco,
qué feo caminas cuando estás en seco.
Pato, patito, vuelve a tu laguna,
y si estás triste, bebéte la luna.

Éste es el pato que aprendió la curacha
para zarandearse en la cucaracha.
pato, patito, pato patuleco
qué feo caminas cuando estás en seco.

English Translation – Duck, little duck

Duck, duckling, legged duck,
how ugly you walk when you’re dry.
Duck, duckling, go back to your pond,
And if you’re sad, drink the moon

This is the duck that learned the curacha*
to shake on the cockroach.
duck, duckling, legged duck
how ugly you walk when you’re dry.
