When the sun shines on the mountains
And the night is on the run,
It's a new day, It's a new way, and I fly up to the sun.
I can feel the morning sunlight;
I can smell the newborn day
I can hear God's voices calling
From my golden skylight way.
U-la Paloma Blanca, I'm just a bird in the sky,
U-la Paloma Blanca, Over the mountains I fly;
No one can take my freedom away.
Once I had my share of losing;
Once they locked me on a chain.
Yes they tried to break my power,
Oh, I still can feel the pain. Chorus
