Al Quebrar La Piñata
Traditional Christmas song from Mexico

En las noches de posadas
La piñata’es lo mejor
La niña más remilgada
Se’al barota con ardor

Dale, dale, dale;
No pier das el tino;
Que de la distancia;
Se pier de’al camino (2x)

In the happy days of Christmas
Sounds of gladness fill the air.
When it’s time for the piñata
There’s excitement everywhere.

Take a stick and whack it.
Be the one to crack it.
Win piñata’s treasure,
Candies for your pleasure! (2x)
