Christ Is Born in Bethlehem
By Alice Corbin
From “New Mexico Folk-songs”
A New Mexico Nursery Rhyme

Cristo nacio is what the rooster said,
And the hen said, En Belen!
The goats were so curious that they said
Vamos a ver—let us go see!
But the wise old sheep said,        5
No es menester!—there’s no need of it!
        Cristo nacio
        En Belen!
        Vamos a ver
        No es menester!        10
