Había una vez =  Once upon a time (There was once …)
Había una vez un barquito chiquitito
Once upon a time there was a little boat

 

Actions:
Sit facing a partner, hold hands and swing back and forth in time to the music:

Había una vez
un barquito chiquitito,
(There was once a little boat)
Había una vez
un barquito chiquitito,

Que no sabía,
That didn’t know,
que no podía,
that didn’t know how to (that couldn’t),
que no podía navegar.
that didn’t know how to sail.

STOP SWINGING!
Hold up your hands and
 count to 6 on your fingers whilst singing:

Pasaron un, dos, tres,
cuatro, cinco, seis semanas
1 2 3 4 5 6 weeks went by(x2)
Pasaron un, dos, tres,
cuatro, cinco, seis semanas …

Start swinging back and forth again:

Y aquel barquito,
y aquel barquito,
y aquel barquito navegó.

(And that little boat,
and that little boat,
and that little boat sailed away.)

Repeat!
