This is how it sounds like, in case anyone is wondering.
I think this is the cutest version posted on YouTube. A cute little girl manages to recite the whole song. I think it’s just adorable how she struggles to pronounce each word.
This is an amazing choir version sung by foreign children. The pronunciation is a little off but it still sounds amazing.
