The Liberator

Amidst misery, hunger, and desolation
Somebody planted a flower in the mud
A certain Bolívar, they call him the Liberator
The Liberator

Shouts for justice, land, and freedom
Again resonate in South America
A new revolution has begun
And this time it’s advancing with conviction

Agrarian reform and just redistribution
Health, culture, and good education
Respect and dignity for the indigenous
For the indigenous

Socialize it!
NO to privatization!
Better working conditions for workers
What the land offers belongs to the people
Against the oligarchy and exploiters

A media war manipulates the truth
Bare your teeth in the face of Uncle Sam
No retreat!

Adelante, Comandante!
Take charge, honestly
It’s a new dawn for Latin America

A firm step forward
Be confident
A people who knows how to organize is
A wise and free people

O, o, o
Far from perfection
You make way by walking
When you have an illusion

O, o, o
Far from perfection
You make way by walking
When you have an illusion

A media war manipulates the truth
Bare your teeth in the face of Uncle Sam
No retreat

Adelante, Comandante!
Take charge, honestly
It’s a new dawn for Latin America

A firm step forward
Be confident
A people who knows how to organize is
A wise and free people

O, o, o
Rebellion in the air
Rebellion in the air in Latin America

O, o, o
Time of transition
Time of transition in all America

Adelante, Comandante!
To the vanguard, Comandante,
Of Latin America!

A firm step forward
Be confident, Comandante,
O, o, o, in Latin America!
