Christmas Carols - Los Peces En El Río (English translation)

Spanish

Los Peces En El Río

 
La Virgen se está peinando
Entre cortina y cortina
Sus cabellos son de oro
Y el peine de plata fina
 
Pero mira como beben los peces en el río
Pero mira como beben por ver a Dios nacido
Beben y beben y vuelven a beber
Los peces en el río por ver a Dios nacer
 
Pero mira como beben los peces en el río
Pero mira como beben por ver a Dios nacido
Beben y beben y vuelven a beber
Los peces en el río por ver a Dios nacer
 
La Virgen lava pañales
Y los tiende en el romero
Los pajarillos cantando
Y el romero floreciendo
 
Pero mira como beben los peces en el río
Pero mira como beben por ver a Dios nacido
Beben y beben y vuelven a beber
Los peces en el río por ver a Dios nacer
 
La Virgen se está lavando
Con un poco de jabón
Se le han pintado las manos
Manos de mi corazón
 
Pero mira como beben los peces en el río
Pero mira como beben por ver a Dios nacido
Beben y beben y vuelven a beber
Los peces en el río por ver a Dios nacer.

The fish

Versions: #1#2
Virgin Mary is brushing her hair
among curtains and curtains
her hair is made of gold
and the comb is made of high quality silver
 
Why, look how they drink!
The fish at the river
Look how they drink
Because they saw God being born
 
They drink and drink and drink again
The fish at the river
Because they saw God being born
They drink and drink and drink again
The fish at the river
Because they saw God being born
 
Virgin Mary is walking
She is walking alone
Her only company
Is the child holding her hand
 
Why, look how they drink!
The fish at the river
Look how they drink
Because they saw God being born
 
They drink and drink and drink again
The fish at the river
Because they saw God being born
They drink and drink and drink again
The fish at the river
Because they saw God being born
 
Virgin Mary carries a rose
in her holy bosom
It was given to her by Saint Joseph
before the child was born
 
Why, look how they drink!
The fish at the river
Look how they drink
Because they saw God being born
 
They drink and drink and drink again
The fish at the river
Because they saw God being born
They drink and drink and drink again
The fish at the river
Because they saw God being born
 
Virgin Mary is washing diapers
and extends them above the rosemary
The birds are singing
and the rosemary is blossoming
 
Why, look how they drink!
The fish at the river
Look how they drink
Because they saw God being born
 
They drink and drink and drink again
The fish at the river
Because they saw God being born
They drink and drink and drink again
The fish at the river
Because they saw God being born

This is kind of a religious song sung at the church around Christmas and though not exactly a Christmas carol, it's sometimes included by carolers in their songs
