Sabanero sounds like the translation for cowboy. What a cowboy burrito is eludes me.They are much to big to wrap in a tortilla grin

Maybe it's a little cowboy that rides around on a little donkey.

Well, sabana in Spanish means Blanket. So we always thought it was a donkey that hauls loads of blankets... Love this song!

  • I think that in this context sabana means savannah in English, not bedsheet. (sábana) - 0074b507 Dec 7, 2010 flag
