Lyr. Add: Burrito Sabanero
Carol, Venezuela. (El burrito de Belén)

Con mi burrito sabanero voy camino de Belén (2x)

Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén (2x)

El lucerito mañanero alumina mi sendero (2x)

Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén (2x)

Con mi cuatrico voy cantando mi burrito va trotando (2x)

Si me ven, etc. (2x)

Tuqui tuqui tuqui tuqui tuqui tuquita
Apúrate mi burrito, que ya vamos a llegar

Tuqui tuqui tuqui tuqui tuqui tuquitu
Apúrate mi burrito, vamos a ver a Jesus.

(Repeat verses)

Con mi burrito sabanero voy camino de Belén (2x)

Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén (4x)

Translation-

With my little plains donkey, I am riding to Bethlehem

If you see me, if you see me, I am on my way to Bethlehem

The little morning star lights my path

I am singing my little song as my little donkey trots along

Tuqui....
Hurry, my little donkey, we are almost there
Tuqui.....
Hurry, my little donkey, we are going to see Jesus.

Wrong season, but the Caribbean donkey songs reminded me of this Venezuelan (also Colombia, Panama) villancico, sung by children.

The version above by Hugo Blanco.

Q, were you inspired to create this thread by the "Donkey Want Water" thread? I imagine this Christmas carol refers to the Nativity.

And then Los tres Magos arrived, riding on quesadillas...

Sorry.

It's a nice villancico and I had no business sullying it with translingual nekulturniy puns...

Subject: Lyr Add: EL BURRITO DE BELÉN (Hugo Blanco)
From: Jim Dixon

Here's how it appears in Cantoral Liturgico by Eqtapo Paulino (Bogota: San Pablo, 2007), page 147:

EL BURRITO DE BELÉN
Hugo Blanco, Venezuela

1. Con mi burrito sabanero voy camino de Belén. (2x)
Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén. (2x)

2. El lucerito mañanero ilumina mi sendero. (2x)
Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén. (2x)

Tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, ta,
Apúrate, mi burrito, que ya vamos a llegar;
Tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, tú,
Apúrate, mi burrito, vamos a ver a Jesús.


3. Con mi cuatrico voy cantando mi burrito va trotando. (2x)
Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén. (2x)


[And here it is with the chords added, with the notation as I found it (I hope you can figure it out):]

1. Con mi burrSolito sabanDoero voy camRe7ino de BelSolén. (2x)
Si me Doven, si me Solven, voy camRe7ino de BelSolén. (2x)

Si7Tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, Mimtuqui, Si7tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, Mimta,
ApLa7úrate, mi burrReito, que ya La7vamos a Rellegar;
Si7Tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, Mimtuqui,Si7 tuqui, tuqui, tuqui, Mimtú,
ApúrDoate, mi burrSolito, vamos Re7a ver a JesSolús.
