“La Cucaracha” is a Spanish folk song that became popular in Mexico between 1910-1920, during the Mexican Revolution. The origins of the song are unknown, but it was created for Victoriano Huerta, a Mexican military officer and 35th President of Mexico, known for the addiction issues he used to have. 

The lyrics are improvised according to the use of the song (children, historical or political meaning, etc.), so we thought we might write our own English lyrics, which will make this song, “La Cucaracha”, ideal for a children’s party. Have fun!


 

“La Cucaracha” lyrics

“La Cucaracha” Letra para niños

La cucaracha, la cucaracha,
ya no puede caminar
porque no tiene,
porque le faltan
las dos patitas de atrás.

Dicen que la cucaracha
Es un animal pequeño
Y cuando entra en una casa
Se tiene que quedar dueño.

La cucaracha, la cucaracha,
ya no puede caminar
porque no tiene,
porque le faltan
las dos patitas de atrás.

Cuando uno quiere a una
Y esta una no lo quiere,
Es lo mismo que si un calvo
En la calle encuentra un peine

La cucaracha, la cucaracha,
ya no puede caminar
porque no tiene,
porque le faltan
las dos patitas de atrás.

“La Cucaracha” (The Cockroach) | Original English Lyrics for children by Singing Bell

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
all she wanted was to dance,
she doesn’t mind that
a leg is missing,
she would never miss the chance.

In the house nobody wants her
and they hunt her through the back door
so she goes after the music
and she’s dancing on the dance floor.

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
all she wanted was to dance,
she doesn’t mind that
a leg is missing,
she would never miss the chance.

She won’t stay where they don’t want her,
there are better things to ask for.
Now the music seems to charm her
as she’s dancing on the dance floor.

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
all she wanted was to dance,
she doesn’t bother
if legs are missing,
she would never miss the chance.
