Let’s go students,
To the streets and the squares.
Let’s go,
For life is calling us.
Let’s go, comrades,
Our heads high;
Who fights for something
Gets it.
Today it is arms,
And tomorrow, what will they be?
What will they be? What will they be?
Today it is stones,
Think about it
Think, think!
Let us march,
Our fists clenched,
And our hearts in revolt.
Let’s us go like a river,
In the streets and the squares
Crying out what Artigas
Will one day tremble,
Tremble! Tremble!
A cold wind,
We’re going to get them
Get them! Get them!
We are the new
Of the spring.
Against our voice
There are no barriers
We will defeat
The darkened air
Let’s go, let’s create
A new dawn.
