Sings Cancion de cuna para dormir a un negrito 1970
lyrics: Ildefonso Pereda Valdés
music: X. Montsalvatge
Hush-a-bye my little one,
Little black one who doesn’t want to sleep.
Head of a coconut, little coffee bean,
With soft cottony hair,
With huge eyes like two windows
That look out at the sea.
Close your little eyes,
Frightened little one,
The white bogeyman could eat you!
You are no longer a slave!
If you sleep a lot
The master of the house will buy you
A suit with buttons to be just like a groom.
Hush-a-bye, sleep now little one.
Head of a coconut, little coffee bean.
