A Springtime Song Called “La Primavera” from Peru

Here’s a nice Peruvian children’s song about the Spring in Spanish followed by an English translation…

La primavera

La primavera
Cantan, cantan por los campos,
Primavera llega ya.
Por los campos viene riendo jaja
Riendo jajajaja
Los campos florecen
Las aves aparecen
Sale el sol
Todo es amor
Llegó la primavera
Vestida de flores
Y yo quisiera
Vestirme de mil colores.


They sing, sing in the fields,
Spring arrives at last!
In the fields it comes laughing, ha, ha!
Laughing, ha, ha, ha, ha!
The fields bloom
The birds appear
The sun comes out
Everything is love
Springtime arrives
Dressed in flowers
And I’d like to
Dress in a thousand colors!

Many thanks to Anna Carina Morales Peña for sending this song and to Monique Palomares for helping me with the English translation.

If anyone knows the tune to this song, please email me.
