Miren al pepino
Watch the cucumber
miren como se mueve
see how he moves
como un leon
like a lion
tras un raton.
chasing a mouse.

Miren al pepino
Watch the cucumber
sus suaves movimientos
Oh, how smooth his motion
tal como mantequilla
like butter
en un chango pelon.
on a bald monkey.

Miren al pepino
Look at the cucumber
los vegetales
all the vegetables
envidian a su amigo
envy their friend
como el quieren bailar.
wishing to dance as he.

Pepino bailarin, pepino bailarin, pepino bailarin
Dancing cucumber, dancing cucumber, dancing cucumber
Baila, baila, ya!
Dance, dance, yeah!

Miren al tomate
Look at the tomato
¿no es triste?
Isn't it sad?
El no puede bailar.
He can't dance.
¡Pobre tomate!
Poor tomato!

El desería poder bailar
He wishes he could dance
Como el pepino
like the cucumber
libre y suavemente.
free and smooth.
Pero el no puede danzar.
But he can't.


Escuchen al pepino
Listen to the cucumber
oigan su voz fuerte
hear his strong voice
como un leon
like a lion
listo a devorar.
about to eat.

Escuchen al pepino
Listen to the cucumber
que dulce es su canto
oh how sweet his voice
la voz de su garganta parece un trinar.
the breath from his throat is like a chorus of little birdies.

Escuchen al pepino
Listen to the cucumber
los vegetales
all the vegetables
envidian a su amigo
envy their friend
como el quieren cantar.
wishing to sing as he.

Pepino cantador, pepino cantador, pepino cantador
Singing cucumber, singing cucumber, singing cucumber
Canta, canta, ya!
Sing, sing, yeah!

Escuchen al tomate
Listen to the tomato
¿No es triste?
Isn't it sad?
El no puede cantar.
He can't sing.
Pobre tomate.
Poor tomato.

El desería poder cantar
He wishes he could sing
fuerte y dulce como el pepino
strong and sweet like the cucumber
Pero no puede ...
But he can't ...
¡Ni siquiera da un silbido!
Can't even whistle!


Adios, amigos!

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

I can't tell if I'm disappointed or not.

I expected to see a dancing cucumber.

However, I may be GLAD I didn't see a dancing cucumber.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with
badge
much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

The tomato can't dance or sing.

But it can kill.
