Spanish Children Songs - El chivo ciclista (English translation)

El chivo ciclista

Era un chivo en bicicleta sin saber andar
contra la banqueta el manubrio fue a clavar
¡que se cae! ¡que se cae! ¡que se cae! ¡ que se cae!
¡todo es cuestión de practicar!.
 
Iba el chivo piocha en bicicleta de alquiler
que valor derrocha en sus ansias de aprender
¡que se cae! ¡que se cae!!que se cae!! que se cae!
¡como treinta jarros fue a romper.!
 
Quiebre usted el manubrio pa' poderse sostener
pero el chivo se hizo bolas sin saber que hacer
¡que se cae! ¡que se cae!¡que se cae!¡ que se cae!
¡hacia el piso nunca hay que ver.¡
 
Y por fin el chivo ser ciclista consiguió
mas su larga barba en la rueda se atoró
!que se cae! que se cae!!que se cae!! que se cae!
contra un gendarme retachó.

Cyclist Goat

He was a goat on a bicycle and he didn't know how to ride
Against the sidewalk he hit with the handlebars
He's going to fall! He's going to fall! He's going to fall! He's going to fall!
It's all about practice!
 
The pointed-beard goat rode a rental bicycle
What courage he is showing in his great desire to learn
He's going to fall! He's going to fall! He's going to fall! He's going to fall!
He went on to break 30 pitchers!
 
Please turn the handlebars so as to be able to balance
But the goat got really confused and didn't know what to do
He's going to fall! He's going to fall! He's going to fall! He's going to fall!
You should never look at the ground!
 
And finally the goat was able to become a cyclist
But his long beard got snagged in a wheel
He's going to fall! He's going to fall! He's going to fall! He's going to fall!
After hitting a police officer he ricocheted.

One of my favorite chidlhood songs, growing up in Mexico City. Cri Cri was a very popular and prolific composer of children's songs. Mexicans are very proud of him. I met his son once. Regular smile
