Thread Name: Origins: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Chiapanecas (trad. Mexico)
I used to sing (and loved) this as a child in the mid-'60s. These are the words I remember, except I think we were singing the one line in Spanish,

Hay Chiapanecas alli
Translation: There are Chiapanecas there.

Hay is pronounced "I" or "aye".   
Alli is pronounced ayee (which you might have heard as aye aye.)
