Víctor Jara, gift!

"I ask those present, if they have not thought that this land is ours, and not from the one who has more, I ask if you have never thought on earth that if you are ours, you give it to us. To desalambrar, to desalambrar, that the earth is ours, is yours and that of Pedro and María, Juan and José! If I worry about my singing, someone who does not want to hear, I assure you that he gringo or an owner of this land.On desalambrar, to desalambrar, that the earth is ours, is yours and that of Pedro and María, of Juan and José!
