Hei Companheiro, levanta e vamos lutar
Hei Companheiro, pra juntos a terra conquistar
Nosso trabalho é na força bruta
Se a gente luta é pra produzir
Mas falta terra para este povão
E tendo terra não nos falta o pão
A nossa luta vai muito além
De ter a terra só para trabalhar
Nós queremos uma sociedade
Com igualdade em todo o lugar
Se aquecer no sol do amanhã
Sonhar a vida com novos valores
Cortar os espinhos da concentração
E pela estrada replantar as flores.
