Cuando yo era niņa
(When I Was A Child)
Spanish Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Elise Carr Sumner

This song is available on Elise Carr Sumner's ¡Viva La Musica!

This song practices the imperfect verb tense. The English translation is below.

Cuando yo era niña con mis padres vivía
En una casa blanca al lado del mar
Con las gaviotas iba al cielo a volar
Pero siempre yo volvía 
A la casita del mar

Yo siempre cantaba; en la arena bailaba
Y yo sentía mucha paz
Mis padres me cuidaban 
Su amor ellos me daban
Y yo no quería nada más


When I was a child, I lived with my parents
In a white house by the sea
With the seagulls I flew *to the sky 
But I always returned 
To the seaside house

I always sang; I danced on the sand
And I felt much peace
My parents took care of me 
They gave me their love
And I didn't want anything more

*Lit. “I went to the sky to fly”
