De Colores

A beautiful song but what does it mean? Could an actual translator do it for me? Here are the lyrics:

De colores, de colores se visten los campos en la primavera
De colores, de colores son los pajaritos que vienen de afuera
De colores, de colores es el arco iris que vemos lucir
Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores me gustan a mí
Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores me gustan a mí

Canta el gallo, canta el gallo con el quiri quiri quiri quiri quiri
La gallina, la gallina con el cara cara cara cara cara
Los polluelos, los polluelos con el pío pío pío pío pío pí
Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores me gustan a mí
Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores me gustan a mí

De colores, de colores brillantes y finos se viste la aurora
De colores, de colores son los mil reflejos que el sol atesora
De colores, de colores se viste el diamante que vemos lucir
Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores me gustan a mí
Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores me gustan a mí

iGracias!

Draped in color, draped in color are the fields in the spring
Draped in color, draped in color are the birds that come from outside
Draped in color, draped in color is the rainbow that we see shine
That is why the grand loves of many colors do please me
That is why the grand loves of many colors do please me

The rooster sings, the rooster sings cock-a-doodle-do
The hen, the hen cackles cackles cackles
The chicks, the chicks whistle whistle whistle
That is why the grand loves of many colors do please me
That is why the grand loves of many colors do please me

Draped in color, draped in color of brilliance and finesse is the dawn
Draped in color, draped in color are the thousands of reflections given off by the sun
Draped in color, draped in color is the diamond that we see shine
That is why the grand loves of many colors do please me
That is why the grand loves of many colors do please me.......

"Vestirse de colores" literally means to get dressed of colours, i.e. with colourful clothes. I this case it is a metaphor for the fields full of flowers, green grass and all the spring colours.
It also mentions that the reflections are colourful, and so is the aurora, the birds (and the pizzas, hehe)...
