Colorina (English title: Redhead) is a Mexican telenovela produced by Valentín Pimstein for Televisa in 1980. It was a remake of La Colorina, while remakes of Colorina are Apasionada and Salomé.

Gustavo Adolfo Almazán is a repressed millionaire married to an invalid named Alba. His life is dictated by his tyrannical mother Ana María. One night, Iván, a rascal brother-in-law of Gustavo, brings two drunken cabaret singers, Fernanda and Rita, to the Almazán household and they start a raucous party. This is how Gustavo meets Fernanda, alias Colorina (on account of her red hair) with whom he’ll share a passionate love affair.
Ana María wants a grandchild and pays Fernanda to have a child with her son, on condition that she gives it to Alba to raise as her own. Although Fernanda initially agrees with the plan, she changes her mind after her son is born. Fernanda flees to Monterey, California where she starts a new life. Twenty years later, Fernanda is a respectable matron, the prosperous owner of a boutique. She decides to return to Mexico and introduce her biological son and two adopted sons to the Almazán family to see if they can guess which one is Gustavo Adolfo’s son.

Lyrics of the song
con tu canto de golondrina
y ese sueño en la piel
has llenado de ti mi vida.
corazón de ternura escondida,
bajo tu mando de amor
llevas mi alma prendida.
Nuestro amor no tendrá final
porque ha echado su raíz
mas allá del bien y el mal,
porque es puro como el agua de manantial.
