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 mi.
Y por eso los grandes amores
de muchos
Colores me gustan a mi.
Canta el gallo,
Canta el gallo con el
Kiri, kiri, kiri, kiri, kiri.
La gallina,
La gallina canta con el
Cara, cara, cara, cara, cara.
Los pollitos,
Los pollitos con el pio, pio, pio, pio, pi.
Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos
Colores me gustan a mi.


Oh, the colors!
The fields beome colorfully dressed
In springtime.
Oh, the colors!
The birds that come from afar
Are so colorful.
Oh, the colors!
The rainbow that we see glowing is colorful.

Thatís why I like this colorful world
So much.

Thatís why I like this colorful world
So much.

The rooster sings,

Cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck.
The chicks,
