La Cucaracha
Traditional Latin American Lyrics and Music
New English Verses by Daria A. Marmaluk-Hajioannou


This song is available on Daria's I Have a Dream: World Music for Children.

 

What’s a… what’s a… what’s a cucaracha ?
It’s a … It’s a … cockroach
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
Porque le falte, porque 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
Porque le falte, porque 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!
