The Lyrics

With my Little Donkey I go walking, all the way to Bethlehem…

See me go, see me go, on to Bethlehem I go.

 

Our path is lit so very far, by the bright and shining star…

See me go, see me go, on to Bethlehem I go.

 

With my ukulele I go singing, while my Donkey goes a springing…

See me go, see me go, on to Bethlehem I go.

 

Our path is lit so very far, by the bright and shining star…

See me go, see me go, on to Bethlehem I go.

 

Tukie tukie tukie tukie, tukie tukie tukie ta!

Hurry hurry little donkey,  cause you know we’re almost there.

 

Tukie tukie tukie tukie, tukie tukie tukie tu!

Hurry hurry little donkey, Jesus waits for me and you.

Con mi burrito sabanero voy camino de Belén…

Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén.

 

El lucerito mañanero ilumina mi sendero…

Si me ven, si me ven,voy camino de Belén.

 

Con mi cuatrico voy cantando, mi burrito va trotando…

Si me ven, si me ven, voy camino de Belén.

 

Tuki tuki tuki tuki, tuki tuki tukita!

Apúrate mi burrito que ya vamos a llegar.

 

Tuki tuki tuki tuki tuki tuki tukitu!

Apúrate mi burrito vamos a ver a Jesús.
