Lyrics[edit]

Spanish[edit]

Arbolito de naranja,

Peinecito de marfil,

Para la niña más bonita

Del Colegio de Guayaquil.

La Chanita y la Juanita

Se fueron a cortar limones;

Encontraron el árbol seco

Y se dieron de topetones.

English translation[edit]

"A little orange tree,

A little ivory comb,

For the prettiest girl

Of Guayaquil High School.

Joanie and Janie

Went to pick limes;

They found the tree all dried up

So they butted heads instead."
