Lyrics

Se equivocó la paloma,
se equivocaba
Por ir al norte, fue al sur
Creyó que el trigo era agua
Se equivocaba
que el mar era cielo;
y la noche, la manaña
Se equivocaba.
Que las estrellas, rocio;
y la calor, la nevada
Que tu falda era tu blusa,
y tu corazón, su casa.
Se equivocó la paloma
Que tu falda era tu blusa,
y tu corazón, su casa
Se equivocó la paloma
Ella durmió en la orilla.
Y tú, en la cumbre de una rama

(ENGLISH TRANSLATION)
The dove was mistaken.
She was mistaken.
Instead of north, she headed south.
She mistook wheat for water.
She was mistaken.

She mistook the sea for the sky;
the night for the morning.
She was mistaken.

That stars were dew,
that warmth was snow.
She was mistaken.

That your skirt was your blouse;
that your heart was her home.
She was mistaken.
She fell asleep on the shore.
And you, on top of a bough
