Pájaro viejo que cantas que cantas
esta tierra te ha visto nacer

canta canta cántame
cántame recuérda me

que somos todos hijos del sol
que somos todos hijos de la luna


ancient bird, you sing you sing
this land has seen you be born

Sing Sing Sing me
Remind me, sing me

we are all children of the sun
we are all children of the moon
