Text

Estrellitas de los cielos
Que a Jesús miráis llorar
Y no lloráis, y no lloráis
Alumbrad la noche oscura
Con vuestra luz clara y pura
[Merry Christmas, everybody, Feliz Navidad!]

(translation: Little stars in the heavens, if you see Jesus crying, don't cry yourselves, but illuminate the dark night with your clear and pure light)

these words are the third verse of the traditional Spanish carol Veinticino de diciembre
