CORRIDO DE CESAR CHAVEZ

Ya viene del Norte
un hombre muy grande
de todo el país.
Ya viene con gusto
de ver a su gente
que encuentra aquí.

28 de mayo para honrarlo
por lo que empezó
allá en Delano
en el Valle de Infamia
de nuestra nación.

Lleva por su nombre
que es César Chávez
y con su sonrisa
nos da el entender
de lo que el siente
en su corazón
en ver a su gente
contra la traición.

Rancheros demonios
que tratan la gente
de esclavos no más
pero este gallito
la ley de trabajo
les viene aplicar.

Los latifundistas
están asombrados
en al ver llegar
a este caudillo
que busca injusticias
para conquistar.

DiGeorgio y el Shenley
quisierson pelear
pero este caudillo
pudo demostrar
que unidos la raza
podemos ganar
Que Viva la Huelga
no la han de olvidar.

En todas las luchas
han habido hombres grandes
que han sido iguales
igual que Zapata
también Hidalgo
no olvidando a Juarez.

Nos pide ayuda para combatir
a casiques de allá
no compren las uvas
maduras o en bote pá poder ganar.

También no se olviden
de la esposa de él
que siempre a su lado
se encuentra may fiel
y en sus trabajos
en busca del bien.


THE SONG OF CESAR CHAVEZ

He comes from the North
this very big man
from all over the country
He comes with pleasure
to see his people
That are all here.

May 28 is the day we honor him
for all that he began
over there in Delano
in this infamous valley
of our nation.

His name is
Cesar Chavez
and with his smile
he shows us
all that he feels
in his heart
watching his people
fight against treason.

Demonic ranch owners
treat the people
like nothing more than slaves,
but this little rooster
comes to enforce
the laws of the worker.

The landowners
are overwhelmed
when they see him arrive
this fearless leader
that looks for injustice
in order to conquer it.

DiGeorgio and Shenley
wanted to fight
but this leader
was able to show them
that the "raza" is united
and that we can win
Long Live the Strike
so they will never forget it.

In all of the struggles
there have been great men
that have been equal
like Zapata
and also Hidlado
without forgetting Juarez.

He asks for our help to fight
against those chiefs from over there
In order for us to win
don't buy the grapes that are ripe or canned.

Also don't forget
about his wife
who is always by his side
she is always faithful
and in all her work she
strives for what is right.
