JOSE SE LLAMABA EL PADRE, JOSEFA LA MAMA

I recently learned a new children's nursery rhyme in English: 

My name is John Johnson I come from Wisconsin I work at the animal fair, all the people I meet when I walk down the street, say: What's your name?! and I say, My name is John Johnson....

That made think of a similar little rhyme we used to sing in the car on the many road trips we took in Guatemala. We recorded it with Nicole and Megan, I apologize for my lack of musical ability!  It goes "José se llamaba el padre, Josefa la mamá y al hijo que tuvieron le pusieron... José se llamaba el padre....." (Jose was the name of the father, Josephina the mother and the child they had they named.. Jose was the name of the father...)
