¿Qué has aprendido en la escuela hoy, querido hijo mío?

What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine?

I learned that Washington never told a lie. Aprendí que Washington nunca dijo mentiras
I learned that soldiers seldom die.
Aprendí que los soldados raramente mueren.
I learned that everybody's free,
Aprendí que todo el mundo es libre,
And that's what the teacher said to me.
y eso es lo que me dijo la profesora.

That's what I learned in school today, That's what I learned in school.

What did you learn in school today,Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,Dear little boy of mine?
I learned that policemen are my friends.
Aprendí que los policías son mis amigos.
I learned that justice never ends.
Aprendí que la justicia no tiene fin.
I learned that murderers die for their crimes Aprendí que los asesinos mueren por sus crímenes
Even if we make a mistake sometimes.
incluso si cometemos algún error a veces.

That's what I learned in school today, That's what I learned in school.

What did you learn in school today,Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,Dear little boy of mine?
I learned that Government must be strong;
Aprendí que el Gobierno debe ser severo;
It's always right and never wrong;
Siempre tiene razón, nunca está equivocado;
Our leaders are the finest men
Nuestros líderes son los mejores hombres
And we elect them again and again.
Y los elegimos una y otra vez.

That's what I learned in school today, That's what I learned in school.

What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today, Dear little boy of mine?
I learned that war is not so bad;
Aprendí que la guerra no es tan mala;
I learned about the great ones we have had;
Aprendí sobre las Grandes guerras que hemos tenido;
We fought in Germany and in France
Luchamos en Alemania y en Francia
And someday I might get my chance.
Y algún día llegará mi oportunidad.

That's what I learned in school today, That's what I learned in school.
