La Playa

The Beach 

When the sky is blue 

And there’s not a cloud in the sky 

The time has come to go to the beach 

Il posto migliore del mondo! 

I like to play ball ...dive in the water ...dig in the sand 

And then, it’s time for some pizza.

 

Munch, munch, munch, munch, 

I like to eat pizza ...ping pong ...go in a boat ....swim in the sea 

And then, eat an ice cream

 

Yum, yum, yum, yum 

I like to eat ice cream ...play boche ...throw and frisbee ...fly a kite 

And then, lie in the sun 

 

Mm, mm, mm, mm, 

And then, sunbathe (x2) 

The sky is blue 

and there are no clouds in the sky 

We're going to the beach, the beach 

The best place in the world! 

In the world! 

El cielo esta (a)zul 

y no hay nubes en el cielo 

Nos vamos a la playa, la playa 

¡El mejor lugar del mundo! 

Me gusta jugar al futbol (j-ch) 

Me gusta bucear en el agua (soft c) 

Me gusta cavar en la arena 

Y luego comer una pizza 

 

Ñam, ñam, ñam, ñam 

Me gusta come una pizza , Me gusta jugar al ping-pong , Me gusta remar en un bote ,Me gusta nadar en el mar 

Y luego, comer un helado 

 

Ñam ñam ñam ñam 

Me gusta comer un helado ,Me gusta jugar a las bochas ,Me gusta tirar el frisbi ,Me gusta remontar la cometa 

Y luego, tomar el sol 

 

Mm, mm, mm, mm, 

Y luego, tomar el sol (x2) 

El cielo esta (a)zul 

y no hay nubes en el cielo 

Nos vamos a la playa, la playa 

¡El mejor lugar del mundo! 

¡Del mundo!
