Song lyrics and translation:

Los pollitos dicen The little chicks say
Pío, pío, pío Pio, pio, pio
Cuando tienen hambre When they’re hungry
Cuando tienen frío And when they’re cold
La gallina busca The hen looks for
El maíz y el trigo Corn and wheat
Y les alimento She feeds them and
Y les presta abrigo Covers them with warmth
Bajo sus dos alas Under her two wings
Acurrucaditos She cuddles them
Hasta el otro día The chicks sleep
Duermen los pollitos Until the next day
Bajo sus dos alas Under her two wings
Acurrucaditos She cuddles them
Hasta el otro dia The chicks sleep
Duermen los pollitos Until the next day
