América Latina de sangue e suor
Eu quero pra ti um dia melhor
Este povo que sofre pela mesma razão
Grita por liberdade numa nova canção.
América, América, sou teu filho e digo
um dia quero ser livre contigo.
América morena do velho e do novo
Construindo a história na luta do povo
Numa guerra de força contra o Imperialismo
que dos povos da América é o grande inimigo.
América minha quero te ver um dia
Teu povo nas ruas com a mesma alegria
Gritar a vitória no campo e cidade
e empunhar a bandeira da liberdade.

This song is from the CD Art in movement
