LOS ELEFANTES

How many elephants can fit on a spider’s web? We’ll see! This fun, traditional Spanish children’s song teaches children Spanish numbers from 1 to 10. With each new verse, children add another elephant to the spider’s web and see if it will hold. The song “LOS ELEFANTES,” performed by Jorge Anaya, is from the Whistlefritz CD CHA, CHA, CHA — Spanish Learning Songs.

Song “LOS ELEFANTES” from the Whistlefritz CD CHA, CHA, CHA.

Un elefante se balanceaba
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veía que resistía
Fue a llamar a otro elefante

 

Dos elefantes se balanceaban
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veían que resistía
Fueron a llamar a otro elefante

 

Tres elefantes se balanceaban
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veían que resistía
Fueron a llamar a otro elefante

 

Cuatro elefantes se balanceaban
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veían que resistía
Fueron a llamar a otro elefante

 

Cinco elefantes se balanceaban
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veían que resistía
Fueron a llamar a otro elefante

 

Seis elefantes se balanceaban
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veían que resistía
Fueron a llamar a otro elefante

 

Siete elefantes se balanceaban
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veían que resistía
Fueron a llamar a otro elefante

 

Ocho elefantes se balanceaban
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veían que resistía
Fueron a llamar a otro elefante

 

Nueve elefantes se balanceaban
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veían que resistía
Fueron a llamar a otro elefante

 

Diez elefantes se balanceaban
Sobre la tela de una araña
Como veían que no resistía
Ya no llamaron más elefantes

An elephant balanced
On a spider’s web
Since it saw that the web held
It went to call another elephant

 

Two elephants balanced
On a spider’s web
Since they saw that the web held
They went to call another elephant

 

Three elephants balanced
On a spider’s web
Since they saw that the web held
They went to call another elephant

 

Four elephants balanced
On a spider’s web
Since they saw that the web held
They went to call another elephant

 

Five elephants balanced
On a spider’s web
Since they saw that the web held
They went to call another elephant

 

Six elephants balanced
On a spider’s web
Since they saw that the web held
They went to call another elephant

 

Seven elephants balanced
On a spider’s web
Since they saw that the web held
They went to call another elephant

 

Eight elephants balanced
On a spider’s web
Since they saw that the web held
They went to call another elephant

 

Nine elephants balanced
On a spider’s web
Since they saw that the web held
They went to call another elephant

 

Ten elephants balanced
On a spider’s web
Since they saw that it didn’t hold
They didn’t call more elephants
