"De Colores"

De colores, de colores
Se visten los campos en la primavera.
De colores, de colores
Son los pajaritos que vienen de afuera.
De colores, de colores
Es el arco iris que vemos lucir.

Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores me gustan a mí.
Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores me gustan a mí.

English

The colors, the colors
The fields dress in the springtime.
The colors, the colors
The birds that come from outside.
The colors, the colors
Is the rainbow we see shinning.

And so the great love
For many colors makes me happy.
And so the great love
For many colors makes me happy..
