(Click on title to play tune)

A la rorro, Nino, a la rorro-ro.
No hagas pucheritos, Nino Redentor.
Hoy con gran anhelo, tierno Salvador,
A tus pies tendimos, nuestro corazon,
A la rorro, Nino, a la rorro-ro
Duermete Ninito, y duermete ya.

Singable translation:
A la rorro, Baby, a la rorro-ro.
Do not cry, Redeemer; tender Savior, sleep.
Today our hearts are happy, we lay them at your feet.
With great joy we greet you, with great joy we weep.
A la rorro, Baby, a la rorro-ro.
Sleep, you tiny Baby, close your eyes and sleep.

Literal translation: (“A la rorro” is like “Tura lura lura”)
A la rorro, Baby Boy, a la rorro-ro.
Do not pant as if to cry, Baby Redeemer.
Today with great feeling, tender Savior,
At your feet we lay our hearts.
A la rorro, Baby Boy, A la rorro-ro.
Sleep, tiny infant, and sleep now.


Traditional Mexican carol.
