Caballito blanco,

llévame de aquí, (sácame de aquí,)

llévame a mi pueblo

donde yo nací.

Tengo, tengo, tengo,

tú no tienes nada,

tengo tres ovejas

en una cabaña. (en una manada.)

Una me da leche,

otra me da lana,

y otra, mantequilla

para la semana.

Levántate Juana

y prende la vela (a prender la vela)

para ver quien anda

por la cabecera.

Son los angelitos
que andan de carrera
despertando al niño
para ir a la escuela.

English translation by Singing Bell

Little white horse,
take me out of here, (get me out of here,)
take me to my town
where I was born.

I have, I have, I have,
you have nothing,
I have three sheep
in a cabin. (in a pack.)

One gives me milk
another gives me wool,
and another, butter
for the week.

Get up Joan
and light the candle (to light the candle)
to see who’s going
towards the headwaters.

They are the little angels
who are racing
waking up the child
to go to school.
