Cucú cucú cantaba la rana

Lyrics - Spanish

(Folk song from Uruguay)

Cucú, cucú cantaba la rana,
Cucú, cucú debajo del agua,
Cucú, cucú pasó un caballero,
Cucú, cucú con capa y sombrero,
Cucú, cucú pasó una señora,
Cucú, cucú con traje de cola,
Cucú, cucú pasó un marinero,
Cucú, cucú vendiendo romero,
Cucú, cucú le pidió un ramito,
Cucú, cucú no le quiso dar,
Cucú, cucú y se echó a llorar.
