“La Cucaracha”  Spanish lyrics

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,

“La Cucaracha” (The Cockroach) – 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.

“La Cucaracha”  Teaching idea & activities

Dance, dance, dance!

Follow the basic idea of the lyrics of the chorus:

a cockroach dancing without the back legs, which means that you are leaning slightly to the front, dancing only on one leg.

Don’t forget to choreograph the song according to its form (A-B-A-C-A).

Divide children in two groups, one for the chorus (A) and one for the verses (B, C), and give them musical instruments (e.g. maracas and guiro) that they are going to play respectively.
