HACIA BELÉN VA UNA BURRA December 22, 2010

Here’s another Carol (Villancico).
Most of the translation is from Mama Lisa’s World: http://www.mamalisa.com/?p=533&t=ec&c=71,
though I had to restore the censored verse about the gypsies!
This site includes lots of Spanish children’s songs (including carols) with translations of the lyrics.

HACIA BELÉN VA UNA BURRA

Hacia Belén va una burra, rin rin
(Yo me remendaba, yo me remendé
Yo me eché un remiendo yo me lo quité)
Cargada de chocolate

Lleva su chocolatero, rin rin
(Yo me remendaba yo me remendé
Yo me eché un remiendo yo me lo quité)
Su molinillo y su anafe

Maria Maria ven acá corriendo
Que el chocolatillo se lo está comiendo
Maria Maria ven acá volando
Que el chocolatillo se lo está llevando

En el portal de belen, rin rin 
(Yo me remendaba, yo me remendé
Yo me eché un remiendo yo me lo quité)
Gitanillos han entrado

Y al niño que está en la cuna, rin rin 
(Yo me remendaba, yo me remendé
Yo me eché un remiendo yo me lo quité) 
Los pañales le han quitado

Maria Maria ven acá corriendo
que los pañalillos los están cogiendo
Maria Maria ven acá corriendo
que los pañalillos los están cogiendo
A DONKEY IS GOING TO BETHLEHEM

A donkey is going to Bethlehem, rin rin,
(I was darning, I darned
I put a patch on, I took it off.)
Loaded with chocolate.

It carries its chocolate pot
(I was darning, I darned
I put a patch on, I took it off.)
It carries its chocolate whisk and its stove.

Mary, Mary, come running here 
It's eating the chocolate,
Mary, Mary, come flying here 
It's taking away the chocolate.

In the stable of Bethlehem, rin rin,
(I was darning, I darned
I put a patch on, I took it off.)
Little gypsies have come in

And the baby who’s in the crib, rin rin,
(I was darning, I darned
I put a patch on, I took it off.)
They’ve taken his nappies

Mary, Mary, come running here 
They’re taking the nappies
Mary, Mary, come running here 
They’re taking the nappies
