History of the Piñata
The Piñata Song
Hit it, hit it, hit it, and don’t miss.
Because if you miss, you’ll loose your way.
This piñata has too many tricks; it only contains oranges and sugar canes.
The piñata has nothing,
it has nothing:
only many peanuts
This piñata has too many tricks;
it only contains oranges and sugar canes.
I don’t want gold, nor do I want silver,
What I want is to break the piñata.
Go ahead Juana, don’t delay
with the basket of peanuts.
Go ahead Maria, leave the corner
with the collection basket.
During this time, we haven’t given up
because Teresita hasn’t given us anything.
Throw confetti and candy,
to the boys that eat a lot.
All of the children prayed with devotion,
from candy to confetti, they each get their portion.
Roasted nuts, candied pineapple;
push out those that won’t fall.
Go ahead Juan, come out of the ring
with the bottle of tea.
From the small hills to the large hills
the golden apples jump.
Go ahead, little girl, come out again
with the bottle of Sherry wine.
Carmela got here:
If it doesn’t release anything, I’ll take out its tooth.
