Rojo que te quiero rojo (Red, I Love You, Red)

Rojo el agua salpicando rojo en las hojas
Rojo el cielo
Roja la luz
Rojo los animales
Rojo el tronco sobre el suelo y las hojas sobre los árboles
Rojo, que te quiero, Rojo
Roja la sangre
Rojo el mar
Rojo el pájaro sobre el árbol
Rojo el corazón en el cuerpo con fuego ardiendo
Rojo, que te quiero, Rojo
Rojo los ruidos
Rojas mis lágrimas
Rojo el mundo sobre el espacio
~
Red, the water sprinkling on the leaves
Red, the sky
Red, the light
Red, the animals
Red, the tree trunk on the ground and the leaves around the trees
Red, I love you, Red
Red blood
The red sea
Red is the bird perched on the tree
Red is the heart in the body blazing on fire
Red, I love you, Red
Red noises
Red, my tears
Red, the earth suspended in space

Explaining Colors

Red is the color of lava bursting out of a volcano.

Black is the color of a cave where the deadly bats live.

Gray is the color of metal that holds things together.

Brown is the color of mountains high in the sky.

Green is the color of leaves hanging on a tree.

Blue is the color of waves in the sea.

Yellow is the color of the sun out in space.

Purple is the color of wild berries hanging on a bush,

And white is the color of stars high above me.
