Russia is waging a disgraceful war on Ukraine. Stand With Ukraine!

Los novios lyrics


Los novios

Tendidos en la yerba
una muchacha y un muchacho.
Comen naranjas, cambian besos
como las olas cambian sus espumas.
Tendido en la playa
una muchacha y un muchacho.
Comen limones, cambian besos
como las nubes cambian sus espumas.
Tendidos bajo tierra
una muchacha y un muchacho.
No dicen nada, no se besan,
cambian silencio por silencio.
thanked 5 times
