Ratoncica, ratoncica

The album 10 minutos para ukelele solo includes a new version of this piece and its score.

Ratoncica, ratoncica is a lullaby that I composed (singing) while putting my 17 days old daughter to sleep. I wrote the arrangement for ukelele as soon as she fell asleep. This is one piece I have special affection for.

Original lyrics:

Ratoncica, ratoncica,
melocotón, cumbia.
Ratoncica, ratoncica,
melocotón, cumbia.
Melocotón, cacahuetico,
melocotón y cacahué.
Ratoncica, ratoncica,
melocotón y cacahué.

That translates to:

Little mouse, little mouse,
peach, cumbia.
Little mouse, little mouse,
peach, cumbia.
Peach, little peanut,
peach and peanut.
Little mouse, little mouse,
peach and peanut.

Score (with tab) is available from Payhip.
