El coquí, el coquí a mi me encanta.
Esta lindo el cantar del coquí.
Por las noches salir acostarme.
Me adormece cantando así.


Chorus:

Coquí, coquí, coquí,
Me adormece cantando así.
Coquí, coquí, coquí,
Me adormece cantando así.

Little coquí frog, how I love you.
How I love your beautiful song.
In the night as I am sleeping,
You sing to me all night long.

Chorus:

Coquí, coquí, coquí,
I hear you singing to me.
Coquí, coquí, coquí,
I hear you singing to me.
