Wake Up, My People (Spanish translation)

Wake Up, My People

Wake up my people before it is too late
Wake up my people they're deciding our fate
Will they take this country without firing a shot?
Wake up my people or you'll lose all that you've got
 
I know that you're busy, trying to make a dime
You even work on Sundays, to get a little overtime
What good will it do you if your freedom you should lose?
Wake up my people because soon you must choose
 
Many years have come and gone since Revere's famous ride
Now's the time to stand and fight, we'll try to turn the tide!
Burn what's of our cities, they rape and kill by night
Politicians in Washington, they say that's civil rights
 
Wake up my people before it is too late
Wake up my people they're deciding our fate
Will they take this country without firing a shot?
Wake up my people or you'll lose all that you've got
Wake up my people or you'll lose all that you've got...

Submitter's comments:

Description:
"Wake Up, My People" is a song from the campaign of George Wallace, a Dixiecrat who went up against Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey in 1968. He was most known for his pro-segregation agenda; which appealed to Southern whites at the time, earning him 5 states; all in the South.

Despierta, Mi Gente

Despierta, mi gente, antes de que sea demasiado tarde
Despierta, mi gente, están decidiendo nuestro destino
¿Tomarán este país sin disparar un tiro?
Despierta, mi gente, o perderás todo lo que tienes
 
Sé que estás ocupado, tratando de hacer un centavo
Incluso trabajas los domingos, para conseguir un poco de tiempo extra.
¿De qué te servirá si pierdes tu libertad?
Despierta, mi gente, porque pronto tendréis que elegir
 
Han pasado muchos años desde el famoso viaje de Revere
Ahora es el momento de levantarse y luchar, ¡intentaremos cambiar la situación!
Queman lo que queda de nuestras ciudades, violan y matan por la noche
Los políticos de Washington dicen que eso son los derechos civiles
 
Despierta, mi gente, antes de que sea demasiado tarde
Despierta, mi gente, están decidiendo nuestro destino
¿Tomarán este país sin disparar un tiro?
Despierta, mi gente, o perderás todo lo que tienes
Despierta, mi gente, o perderás todo lo que tienes...
