EL BARCO CHIQUITO (The Little Boat)

Have you ever heard of a boat too tiny to sail? That’s the case in this catchy, traditional Spanish children’s song. The song teaches children to count in Spanish as 1, 2, 3, ….7 weeks go by and still the tiny boat can’t sail. The song, performed by Jorge Anaya, is from Whistlefritz’s CD CHA, CHA, CHA – Spanish Learning Songs.

HABÍA UNA VEZ UN BARCO CHIQUITO 
HABÍA UNA VEZ UN BARCO CHIQUITO 
HABÍA UNA VEZ UN BARCO CHIQUITO 
TAN CHIQUITO, TAN CHAQUITO, QUE NO 
PODÍA NAVEGAR 

PASSARON UNA, DOS, TRES, CUATRO 
CINCO, SEIS, SIETE SEMANAS 
PASSARON UNA, DOS, TRES, CUATRO 
CINCO, SEIS, SIETE SEMANAS 
 
PASSARON UNA, DOS, TRES, CUATRO 
CINCO, SEIS, SIETE SEMANAS 
Y LOS VIVERES Y LOS VIVERES EMPEZARON 
A ESCASAER 

Y SI LA HISTORIA NO LES PARECE LARGA 
Y SI LA HISTORIA NO LES PARECE LARGA 
Y SI LA HISTORIA NO LES PARECE LARGA 
VOLVEREMOS, VOLVEREMOS, VOLVEREMOS 
A EMPEZAR 

HABÍA UNA VEZ UN BARCO CHIQUITO

ONCE UP ON A TIME, THERE WAS A LITTLE BOAT
ONCE UP ON A TIME, THERE WAS A LITTLE BOAT
ONCE UP ON A TIME, THERE WAS A LITTLE BOAT
SO LITTLE, SO LITTLE THAT IT COULDN’T SAIL

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR
FIVE, SIX, SEVEN WEEKS PASSED
ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR
FIVE, SIX, SEVEN WEEKS PASSED

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR
FIVE, SIX, SEVEN WEEKS PASSED
AND THE SUPPLIES AND THE SUPPLIES WERE BEGINNING
TO RUN LOW

AND IF THIS STORY DOESN’T SEEM LONG ENOUGH TO YOU
AND IF THIS STORY DOESN’T SEEM LONG ENOUGH TO YOU
AND IF THIS STORY DOESN’T SEEM LONG ENOUGH TO YOU
WE’LL GO BACK, WE’LL GO BACK, WE’LL GO BACK AND BEGIN AGAIN

On Tuesday, they hop on one foot, then put their hands in the air. And so on and so forth, as each day adds another action, finally culminating in 7 actions on Sunday. The song, performed by Jorge Anaya, is from Whistlefritz’s CD CHA, CHA, CHA — Spanish Learning Songs. The video clip is from Whistlefritz’s video LA MÚSICA.
