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

Canta el gallo
Canta el gallo con el quiri quiri quiri quiri quiri
La gallina
La gallina con el cara cara cara cara cara
Los polluelos
Los polluelos con el pio pio pio pio pi

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

English[]

Of colors
The fields are dressed in colors in the spring
Of colors
Colored are the little birds that come from outside
Of colors
De Colores is the rainbow we see shine

And so the great loves
I like many colors
And so the great loves
I like many colors

Crow the rooster
The rooster crows with the quiri quiri quiri quiri quiri
The hen
The hen with the face face face face face
The chicks
The chicks with the pio pio pio pio pi

And so the great loves
I like many colors
And so the great loves
I like many colors
