Lyrics[]

Original version (performed by Maribel and her mami in episode and by Dora and Thalía in the music video)[]

Singing makes mermaids happy
There is a rhythm like a heartbeat when we’re singing
That fills you up with joy

When you sing with the mermaids
The friendship lasts forever
There is a melody that plays within your heart

Canta, canta, canta con tus amigos
Sing, sing, sing, making music wherever we go
Canta, canta, canta with all your friends
Sing, sing, sing and the song will never end
Will never end

End of episode version (performed by everyone at the end of the episode)[]

Singing makes mermaids happy
There is a rhythm like a heartbeat when we’re singing
That fills you up with joy

When you sing with the mermaids
The friendship lasts forever
There is a melody that plays within your heart (Dora: Look, the mermaids are coming out!)

Canta, canta, canta con tus amigos
Sing, sing, sing, making music wherever we go
Canta, canta, canta with all your friends
Sing, sing, sing and the song will never end

(Maribel: I still don’t see mi mami!
Dora: Let’s all sing the mermaid song together to help Maribel! In English, we say “Sing”. In Spanish, we say “Canta”. Sing “Canta” with us!)

Canta, canta, canta (2×)
(Dora: One more time!)
Canta, canta, canta (2×)

(Maribel’s mami: Hijita!
Maribel: Mami! Mami!)

Canta, canta, canta con tus amigos (Sing, sing, sing sing, sing)
Sing, sing, sing, making music wherever we go (Canta, canta)
Canta, canta, canta with all your friends (Sing, sing, sing sing, sing)
Sing, sing, sing and the song will never end (The song will never end)
Song will never end (Song will never end)
Canta, canta, sing canta!
