Lyrics and Music
Los Pollitos Dicen Pio Pio
Los pollitos dicen “pio pio pio” – The little chicks say “peep peep peep”
Cuando tienen hambre, cuando tienen frío – When they are hungry, when they are cold
La gallina busca el maíz y el trigo – The hen looks for corn and wheat
les da la comida y les presta abrigo – She gives them food and lends them cover
Bajo sus dos alas, acurrucaditos – Under her two wings, snuggled and cozy
duermen los pollitos hasta el otro día – The chicks sleep until another day
Cuando se levantan, dicen – When they awake, they say,
“Mamacita, tengo mucha hambre, – Mommy, I am very hungry,
Dáme lumbricitas” – Give me food to eat
