My Friend Emilio from Puerto Rico

    He calls a cat “gato;”

    I call a cat “cat.”

    What he calls a “sombrero”

    I just call “hat.”

    He says, “Muchos gracias!”

    I say “Thanks a lot!”

    I can’t always tell what he’s saying—so what?

    Still we play and get along fine!

    For I’m Emilio’s friend,

    And he’s a friend of mine!
