Lyrics

Ay del chiquirritín chiquirriquitín
metidito entre pajas
Ay del chiquirritín chiquirriquitín
queridin, queridito del alma.

1. Por debajo del arco del portalito
se descubre a María, José y al Niño.

Ay del chiquirritín chiquirriquitín
metidito entre pajas
Ay del chiquirritín chiquirriquitín
queridin, queridito del alma.

2. Entre un buey y una mula Dios ha nacido
y en un pobre pesebre lo han recogido.
