Thread Name: Origins: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico)
Subject: RE: Spanish Folk Songs - Chiapanecas
From elementary school, I recall a song called "Chiapanecas" with different lyrics (not certain if it is an alternate tune or not), but still somewhat similar. Amazingly, I remember the lyrics 30 years later. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

*********************
Sing Chiapanecas and clap (clap, clap),
Limber your fingers and snap (snap, snap),
Lift up your toes and we'll tap (tap, tap),
Sing Chiapanecas and clap (clap, clap)!

Dance, dance, everyone's dancing,
Sing, sing, everyone's singing,
Sway, sway, everyone's feeling gay, as we move to the music and
Dance, dance, everyone's dancing,
Sing, sing, everyone's singing,
Sway, sway, everyone, as we move to the Mexican way, Ole!
