La arana pequenita
(The Eensy, Weensy Spider)
La arana pequenita
subio, subio, subio.
Vino la lluvia
y se la llevo.
Salio el sol y
todo los seco.
Y la arana pequenita
subio, subio, subio.

The Eensy, Weensy Spider
The eensy, weensy spider
went up the water spout.
Down came the rain and
washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and
dried up all the rain.
And the eensy, weensy spider
went up the spout again.
