I would stay (Me quedaria)

Angol translation

I would stay

Ladies & gentlemen!
Welcoming to the stage!
It's a great pleasure to present to you!
From San Juan, Puerto Rico..."

I may start living today
or it may be my turn to die
 
I was born here, I was raised here
I lived here but I won't die here
I gotta search for a better future
even if the road may be hard, man
as not a single peso (currency) falls from the sky
I work all day but see no progress
I'm tired of this damned government
we can't look for saints in hell
the mission is to cross the border, run like an athlete
as a rain of bullets is awaiting us there
the order comes from Washington
the opposition, which doesn't care who may die
the sun takes my strength away, but I've got the soul of a warrior
if things were different in my country 
from the bottom of my heart I...

I am proud of the land where I was born
of my culture, of my country
I'm made of sincere roots
don't get me wrong, I live for my flag
but I can't bear the abuse of the big tyrant
it's a demon disguised in a human body
the thoughts are not free
to earn our bread we do all we can
like my ppl in Quisqueya
we left in a raft, don't get slack
as the Red Sea is in the Caribbean
the blood is flowing, oh Lord, by the gallon
the sharks will eat me or I'll eat them alive
thirst and hunger made me their victim
but I won't let the marines catch me
if things were different in my country 
from the bottom of my heart I...

Welcome to the promised land
where millions walk while dead in life
a country full of chances
of racism and inequalities
I know well that Uncle Sam doesn't want me as a nephew
coz I'm a latino
but he wants my labour
I am persecuted, exploited
to go out to work here is like going on a mission
I work under pressure, thinking of prison
fearing I may be taken away by an immigration officer
my family and friends are nearby
but they are at risk of going to jail
we're a shooting target
a threat to the white man
as we keep increasing (in numbers)
the struggle can't stop, did you listen it well?
the struggle can't stop, I set my mind running
to overcome all ideological traps
imposed by the power circles
their laws which are blind, deaf and mute
children of (Pontius) Pilate and Judas
if things were different in my country
from the bottom of my heart I...

There's no doubt 
there's discrimination
against immigrants in this country
but what about the ppl who migrate to our countries?
how do we treat them?
are we united or divided?
ask yourself that question
it's all a chain!
