“De colores” ([Made] of Colors) is a traditional folk song that is well known throughout the Spanish-speaking world. No one knows for sure when the song first began to be sung in the America Continent. The main melody is believed to have been in circulation throughout America since the 16th century, having been brought over from Spain during the colonial era. (source)

Lyrics

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.

Translation

In colors, in colors
The fields are dressed in the spring.
In colors, in colors
Are the little birds that come from outside.
In colors, in colors
Is the rainbow that we see shining.

And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors
And that is why I love
The great loves of many colors. (source)
