Los Pollitos Dicen


  • This is a lovely little Childrens song sung in Spain

In Spanish...

F            C
pío, pío, pío
F                      C

cuando tienen hambre

cuando tienen frío.



La gallina busca
F                 C

el ma-íz y el trigo

y les da abrigo.



Bajo sus dos-alas

F                         C
se-están quiete-citos.

Hasta (e)l-otro día

duermen los pollitos.

In English...

The baby chicks say,
pío, pío, pío
when they are hungry
when they are cold.

The mother hen finds
the corn and the wheat
she feeds them
and keeps them warm.

Under her two wings
they stay quiet
until the next day
the baby chicks sleep.

If you want to play along with the YouTube clip you will need to use the chords A D E7 in place of C F G7... then when the song comes back for a second time change chords to B E F#7!!
