Looking for a Spanish (?) folk (?) song....

 
 
Reply Wed 4 Feb, 2009 07:39 pm
I'm trying to find a song that Mo is just crazy about. He asked the school's music teacher to put a copy on his iPod but he wouldn't/couldn't. He then asked if he could get a print out of the song's music and lyrics and the teacher told him to check the school's website but so far it hasn't been posted.

I'm not sure what language the song is and I have no idea how to spell it so I'm stumbling and stumped.

Phoentically it would be (according to Mo's pronunciation):

KWAN-ito KWAN-do VI-ya

So I've tried several variations of "quinito quando villa" but I haven't come up with anything other than a suggestion to check my spelling.

Does anyone know what song this might be and where I might find a recording of it?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks!

It could be anything!

Is that a real song? That could be it!

Sounds like it could be something like "Juanito, cuando vaya", which might mean something like "When you should go, Juanito", like a leaving song.

Spanish fok song that starts "Juanito, cuando"
and it came back with hits for a Spanish finger play song with "Juanito cuando baila" in it, looks like the one who said that above (I haven't figured out how to scroll back when I'm typing an answer--sorry I don't remember your name) nailed it.

@MontereyJack,
Thank you too, Montery Jack. I really appreciate it.

Now at least I have a way to search for the version of it that Mo has fallen in love with.

@boomerang,
Well, you can tell Mo that you found it due to your wicked phonetic transcription skills....!

Here's the lyrics:

"Juanito"

por José-Luis Orozco



Juanito cuando baila,

baila, baila, baila.

Juanito cuando baila,

baila con el dedito,

con el dedito, ito, ito,

así baila Juanito.



Juanito cuando baila,

baila, baila, baila.

Juanito cuando baila,

baila con el pie,

con el pie, pie, pie

con el dedito, ito, ito,

así baila Juanito.



Juanito cuando baila,

baila, baila, baila.

Juanito cuando baila,

baila con la rodilla

con la rodilla, dilla, dilla

con el pie, pie, pie

con el dedito, ito, ito,

así baila Juanito.



Juanito cuando baila,

baila, baila, baila.

Juanito cuando baila,

baila con la cadera

con la cadera, dera, dera

con la rodilla, dilla, dilla

con el pie, pie, pie

con el dedito, ito, ito,

así baila Juanito.



Juanito cuando baila,

baila, baila, baila.

Juanito cuando baila,

baila con la mano

con la mano, mano, mano,

con la cadera, dera, dera

con la rodilla, dilla, dilla

con el pie, pie, pie

con el dedito, ito, ito,

así baila Juanito.



Juanito cuando baila,

baila, baila, baila.

Juanito cuando baila,

baila con el codo

con el codo, codo, codo,

con la mano, mano, mano,

con la cadera, dera, dera

con la rodilla, dilla, dilla

con el pie, pie, pie

con el dedito, ito, ito,

así baila Juanito.



Juanito cuando baila,

baila, baila, baila.

Juanito cuando baila,

baila con el hombro

con el hombro, hombro, hombro,

con el codo, codo, codo,

con la mano, mano, mano,

con la cadera, dera, dera

con la rodilla, dilla, dilla

con el pie, pie, pie

con el dedito, ito, ito,

así baila Juanito.



Juanito cuando baila,

baila, baila, baila.

Juanito cuando baila,

baila con la cabeza

con la cabeza, beza, beza,

con el hombro, hombro, hombro,

con el codo, codo, codo,

con la mano, mano, mano,

con la cadera, dera, dera

con la rodilla, dilla, dilla

con el pie, pie, pie

con el dedito, ito, ito,

así baila Juanito.

@Butrflynet,
Google's translation is a bit off.
Here's mine

Juanito when he dances,
dances, dances, dances,
Juanito when he dances,
Dances with a finger,
With a finger, inger, inger
That's the way Juanito dances

Of course it doesn't sound as pretty in English.
