We are La Gente Latina

Through our inspiration
We become others motivation,
With our aspirations
We pave the way for future generations

To our youth , we must show the correct ways
If we ever plan to break the cycle of our ever growing oppressive days
It's out choice to move away
Away from being poor, uneducated, and a politicians figment of imagination that just whittles away

We are strong, hardworking, and always showing our love
It is this that we offer the great nation as we rejoice to the man above
We refuse to be ignored and disposed of
For it us that will one day we will run the country with an iron first and tight glove

We are here and will remain
Our sacrifices will not be in vain
Respect and acceptance we will gain
We will continue to break through the countries oppressive chains

We are La Gente Latina
Con amor y deseos
Sobrepasaremos Estos tiempos dificiles
Todo lo que queremos lo haremos Mano a Mano
Somos Raza y unidos todo Pasa
