Caballito blanco,
llévame de aquí,
llévame a mi pueblo
donde yo nací.

Tengo, tengo, tengo,
tú no tienes nada,
tengo tres ovejas
en una cabaña.

Una me da leche,
otra me da lana,
y otra mantequilla
para la semana.

Levántate Juana
y prende la vela,
anda a ver quién anda
por la cabecera.

Son los angelitos
que andan de carrera
buscando la leche,
pa' la mamadera.

Little white horse,
Take me away.
Take me to the town,
Where I was born.

I have, I have, I have,
You have nothing.
I have three sheep,
In a cabin.

One gives me milk,
Another gives me wool,
And another, butter,
A whole week's worth.

Get up, Joan,
And set fire to the candle,
Go see who's walking
On the headboard.

It's the little angels
Who go running
Looking for milk
For the bottle.
