“Los peces en el río” Spanish lyrics

La virgen se está peinando
entre cortina y cortina,
Los cabellos son de oros,
sus peines 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.

La virgen está lavando
y tendiendo en el romero,
Los angelitos cantando
y el romero florecido.

Pero mira como beben los peces en el rio,
pero mira como beben por ver a Dios nacido.
Beben y beben y vuelven a beber
los peces en el rio por ver a Dios nacer.

La virgen está lavando
con un poquito de jabón
Se le picaron 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.

“Los peces en el río” Song History

In contrast to other carols, this doesn’t make reference to Jesus, the birth or the joy, but it rather transmits a feeling of peace and tranquility, as it talks about Mother Mary doing everyday things and chores.
