Lyrics

The English translation of the following lyrics is offered as a guide for non-Spanish speakers. The song is not intended to be sung/performed in English

PIEL, CORAZÓN Y CIELO / SKIN, HEART, AND SKY

 

Negro, blanco, amarillo, canela 

Black, white, yellow, cinnamon*

 

No importa el color de piel

Skin color doesn’t matter

Todos tenemos rojo el corazón

We all have a red heart

 

Y cuando sale el sol

And when the sun comes out,

Sale para ti

It comes out for you

Y cuando sale el sol

And when the sun comes out,

Sale para mí

It comes out for me

 

No importa el color de piel

Skin color doesn’t matter

Todos vivimos bajo el mismo cielo azul

We all live under the same blue sky

Negro, blanco, amarillo, canela 

Black, white, yellow, cinnamon*

No importa el color de piel

Skin color doesn’t matter

Todos tenemos el mismo corazón,

We all have the same heart

Todos tenemos rojo el corazón.

We all have a red heart

 

 

*The word “Canela” is a way to refer to tan or brown skin in some Latin American countries. Another common way to refer to brown skin is “piel morena”.

Craft ideas

At school or home

Make a handprint poster 

  • Paint kids hands with black, white, yellow or brown paint

  • Ask them to print their hands on the paper

  • Cut out a big red heart and put it in the middle of the paper. You can also write the words of the song "No importa el color de piel...todos tenemos rojo el corazón"

 

 

 

 

Popsicle stick handprints

  • Trace hands

  • Color them

  • Cut out hand shapes

  • Tape them to popsicle sticks

 

If the children already know the basic vocabulary in the song (basic colors, heart, sun and sky) you can try to play the song and ask them to raise up their handprint when they listen to the color in the song.You can add to the activity a sun, a heart, and a blue cloud to represent the sky.
