A chuva cai sobre a natureza
e a planta cresce gerando a riqueza
e o trabalhador luta com certeza
pra não faltar o pão sobre nossa mesa.

Refrão
A terra guarda a raiz
da planta que gera o pão
a madeira que dá o cabo
da enxada e do violão.

Liberdade é pão, é vida
Terra-mãe, trabalho e amor
é o grito da natureza
viola de um cantador.

É o povo em movimento
contra as cercas da concentração
com um sorriso de felicidade
e a história na palma da mão.

This song is from the CD Art in movement
