In the song 'Tesoro' by Ojos de Brujo I came across the bolded phrase:

En busca de mi tesoro
tú dale miel y ya bailará
aún sueño con mi cachorro
como mis colegas deben tener
ay con sus pequeños tesoros
mata de otra mata tú ves crecer
ahí abajo chilla el cachorro.

Can anyone make some sense of this?

    My guess is there's a poetic connection between the plants, shrubs and trees in your garden, and the children you have, live for, feed, and watch grow and dance, etc. Maybe someone who knows the group would know what sorts of themes they tend to sing about. Keep in mind that in poetry things don't always march along in perfect syntax as they would in a book or article. Dec 14, 2019 at 21:52
  • I included part of the lyrics and corrected many words, since they were a bit incorrect. By the way, great song from a fabulous band!

It literally means: You can see a bush growing from another bush.

Poetically, it means: You realise children are small versions of you.
