The Spanish Lyrics

Un elefante se balanceaba sobre la tela de una araña.
Como la tela se resistía fue a buscar un camarada.
Dos elefantes se balanceaban sobre la tela de una araña.
Como la tela se resistía fueron a buscar un camarada.
Tres elefantes se balanceaban sobre la tela de una araña.
Como la tela se resistía fueron a buscar un camarada.

UNDERSTANDING It

One elephant was swinging on a thread of a spider(‘s web).
The web was resisting (strong enough), so they went to look for a comrade.
Two elephants were swinging on a thread of a spider.

Cuatro elefantes. Cinco elefantes. Cinco elefantes van.
