"Justicia, Tierra, y Libertad" by Maná, English translation of lyrics

"Justice, Land and Liberty"
Album: Revolución de Amor
Country: Mexico

Justicia tierra y libertad (x2)
Oye tú mi canto, óyelo, óyelo
Oye tu mi llanto, óyelo, óyelo


Justice, land and liberty (x2)
Hear you my song, hear it, hear it
Hear you my cry, hear it, hear it

Hermanos y hermanas de otras razas
De otro color y un mismo corazón
Rezas y rezas y nada interesa
Por eso hagamos la revolución de amor
Oye!


Brother and sisters of other races
Of another color and of a same heart
You pray and you pray and nothing interests
For that reason, let's have a revolution of love
Hear!

Estamos exigiendo todo el respeto
Respeto al indio y a su dignidad
Ya lo dijo Villa, dijo Zapata
Justicia, tierra y libertad (x2)


We're demanding all your respect
Respect for the indian and for his dignity
Villa said it, Zapata said it
Justice, land and liberty (x2)

Oye tú mi canto, óyelo, óyelo
Oye tú mi llanto, óyelo, óyelo
(x2)


Hear you my song, hear it, hear it
Hear you my cry, hear it, hear it

Como obtendríamos libertad
Como obtendríamos dignidad
Como desearía yo
Como desearía el amor


How would we obtain liberty?
How would we obtain dignity?
How I would desire
How I would desire love

Cuando tendremos la democracia
Cuando tendremos la burocracia
Cuando desearía yo
Menos demencia y más amor


When will we have democracy?
When will we have bureaucracy?
When would I desire
Less madness and more love

Amor, dolor, amor
Oye tú mi canto
Justicia, tierra y libertad (x3)


Love, pain, love
Hear you my song
Justice, land and liberty (x3)

Translation Notes:

demencia = literally dementia

General Notes:
This song is the source of the album's title (which won a 2002 Grammy and a 2003 Latin Grammy).
