the Night Before Crijmas y en to'ita la casa,
chango was stirring —¡Caramba! ¿Qué pasa?
The nenes were
tuck’d... away in their camas,
Some in calzoncillos and
some in pijamas,
all the stockings con mucho cuida'o
So that Santa Clós
To bring all the children, los buenos
A bag of marrallos y d'otros regalos.
el Batey, alguien se echó un grito
Yo me levanté
like a scared cochinito.
I ran to the window y miré pa’
¿And who in the world, te creíste que era?
Was Santa in a sleigh with a big yella' pava
along, gordo como ejtaba.
Instead of venados pulling his
He had ocho burros y to’j eran feos.
I watched as they came y el gordito hombre
shouting y así los llamaba por nombre:
“Arre Papo y Tato,
echa Cuco y Beto,
Vuelen, Chato, Moncho, Pompín y
standing erect... la mano en el pecho
He flew to the top
of our very own techo.
With his big round belly, cual
pote ’e jalea,
He struggled to squeeze in por la chimenea,
Then huffing and puffing, se calló en la sala ,
With soot smeared all over su traje de gala,
all the stockings con lindos regalos
muchachos hadn’t been muy malos.
Then chuckling aloud, felíz y contento,
Took the "juyilanga..." veloz como el viento.
But I heard him
say... y ésta es la verdad,
—“Ya es Crijsmas,
Boricuas... Felíz Navidad!”—
