    Default El Gordo Lottery - children singing numbers

    Hi,

    I joined this forum to ask this one question...

    When the children are singing out the numbers for the El Gordo, what does the 1st child say in English?

    It seems to sound like "Mi Lem Dos" - and that doesn't translate well in Google Translate, or if I put their audio into a translate app on iPhone...

    I know the 2nd child reads out the number that is drawn - but I was wondering what the 1st saying is.

    Here is a recording of the draw:

    Thanks for any hints.

    I do not think it is English. I cannot make it out but to me it sounds like... "mi (or mil) embros or lebros":confused

    The first one sings out the number while the second sings out the prize.

    Really? It sounds like the 1st child is always singing the exact same words. No?

    It sounds like because of the intonation, but they are singing out different numbers indeed. :-)

    Wow - Ok - Thanks. I seem to recall reading this as well - but to my ears, it's the same words each and every time...it's quite hypnotic.

    Well, the second child repeats the same number, the number of the prize, "mil euros". That's every time unless the amount is higher but yes, the first one tells a different number every time.

    Perhaps I haven't explained myself enough.

    I don't mean what the 1st child repeats after a winning number is found, I am referring to the drawing of the numbers itself. The 1st child says "Mi lem dos", or at least that what it sounds like to me, and that is what I would like to know what those words mean in English.

    Thanks for looking again at this...

    it's ALL the time...with every single ball they is drawn OUT of the 1st barrel...

    It's the child on the Left hand side (left side as we are viewing them) - in this example the boy - what does he say as he picks up the ball?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtHP5yS_Z-U

    at say 46:45 or 46:50

    I'm just after the 3 words that he says, what are they in English...to me it sounds like "Mi Lem dos"...

    I know it's a silly thing to ask, but it's now driving me crazy.
