La Cucaracha

Words and Music, Traditional – Latin American
New English verses by Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou

A very silly song. I’ve added some English verses here as well.

 

What’s a… what’s a… what’s a cucaracha?
It’s a … It’s a … cockroach
What’s a… what’s a… what’s a cucaracha?
It’s a … It’s a … cockroach

La cucaracha, La cucaracha, ya no puede caminar
Porque le falte, porque no tiene
Dinero para gastar

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
I saw him just the other day
I like him best when, he takes his things and
He gets his friends and moves away!

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
He likes to play up with the band
Upon the guiro, he is a hero
He’s got the fastest moving hands

La cucaracha, La cucaracha, ya no puede caminar
Porque le falte, porque no tiene
Dinero para gastar

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
He likes to play up with the band
Upon the guiro, he is a hero
He’s got the fastest moving hands

The little cockroach, the little cockroach,
I saw him just the other day
I like him best when, he takes his things and
He gets his friends and moves away - ole!
