A La Puerta Del Cielo

A la puerto del cielo vendan zapatos
Para los angelitos que andan descalzos

cho: Duermete, nino, duermete, nino
     Duermete, nino, arru, arru

A los rinos que duerman Dios benedice
A las madres que velan Dios las assiste

English translation:

At the gate of Heaven little shoes they are selling
For the little bare-footed angels there dwelling.

cho: Slumber my baby, slumber my baby
     Slumber my baby, arru, aarru.

God will bless children who go to sleep
God will help mothers who pray.

Collected from the Basque people in New Mexico 1932
From Sail Away, Locke
