Los pollitos dicen
Pio Pio Pio
Cuando tienen hambre
Cuando tienen frío
La gallina busca
El maíz y el trigo
Les da la comida
y les presta abrigo
Bajo sus dos alas
Duermen los pollitos
Hasta el otro día
Cuando se despiertan
Dicen mamacita
Tengo mucha hambre
Dame lombricitas


The chicks say
pio pio pio
When they are hungry
When they are cold
The hen looks for
the corn and the wheat
gives them the food
and gives them shelter
Under her two wings
The chicks sleep
Until next day
When they wake up
They say mommy
I am very hungry
Give me little worms
