2 What is patriotic about this song?
Yo soy un hombre sincero De donde crecen las palmas Y antes de morirme quiero Echar mis versos del alma I am a sincere man From where the palm tree grows And before dying I want To share the verses of my soul. My verse is light green And it is flaming crimson My verse is a wounded deer Who seeks refuge on the mountain (or in the woods). I cultivate a white rose In July as in January For the sincere friend Who gives me his honest hand. And for the cruel one who would tear out this heart with which I live I do not cultivate nettles nor thistles I cultivate a white rose With the poor people of the earth I want to share my fate The brook of the mountains Gives me more pleasure than the sea CHORUS Mi verso es de un verde claro Y de un carmin encendido Que busca en el monte amparo CHORUS Cultivo la rosa blanca En junio como en enero Para el amigo sincero Que me da su mano franca Y para el cruel que me arranca El corazon con que vivo Cardo ni ortiga cultivo CHORUS Con los pobres de la tierra Quiero yo mi suerte echar El arroyo de la sierra Me complace mas que el mar CHORUS
