This song is sung as a round (one voice starts, another joins two measures later, etc.). The video below is music only—no words. Some Spanish pronunciation and musical skills are required to put this together.
|Mi gallo se murió ayer,
Mi gallo se murió ayer.
Ya no cantará co-co-rí, co-co-rá,
Ya no cantará co-co- rí, co-co- rá,
Co-co- rí -co- rí, Co-co- rí -co-co- rá,
Co-co- rí -co- rí, Co-co- rí -co-co- rá.
|My rooster died just yesterday,
My rooster died just yesterday.
Now he’ll never sing co-co-ri, co-co-ra,
Now he’ll never sing co-co-ri, co-co-ra.
Co-co-ri-co-ri, Co-co-ri-co-co- ra.
Co-co-ri-co-ri, Co-co-ri-co-co- ra
