Pimpón es un muñeco.
Muy guapo de cartón.
Se lava la carita
con agua y con jabón.

Pimpon is a doll.
Very handsome and made of cardboard.
He washes his little face.
with water and with soap.

Pimpón siempre se peina
con peine de marfil
y aunque se hace tirones
no llora ni hace así

Pinpóm always brushes his hair
with a comb made from ivory
and when there are tangles
he doesn’t cry or do this.  (make a whining sound and look sad)

Pimpón dame la mano
con un fuerte apretón
que quiero ser tu amigo.
Pimpón, pimpón, pimpón.

Pinpóm give me your hand
with a strong grip.
I want to be your friend
Pimpón, Pimpóm, Pimpón.
