LA CUCARACHA (THE LITTLE COCKROACH)

New english lyrics – Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou

What’s a… what’s a… what’s a cucaracha ?
It’s a … It’s a … cockroach

La cucaracha, La cucaracha, ya no puede caminar
Por que le falte, por que no tiene
Dinero para gastar

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
I saw him just the other day
I like him best when, he takes his things and…
He gets his friends and moves away!

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
He likes to play up with the band
Upon the guiro, he is a hero
He’s got the fastest moving hands

La cucaracha, La cucaracha, ya no puede caminar
Por que le falte, por que no tiene
Dinero para gastar

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
He likes to play up with the band
Upon the guiro, he is a hero
He’s got the fastest moving hands

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
I saw him just the other day
I like him best when, he takes his things and
He gets his friends and moves away - ole!


This bilingual song almost makes a cockroach look cute! The Spanish are traditional and the song is from Mexico. The new English lyrics were written by popular children's artist - DARIA.
