Song 91: "Canción de Bourg Madame"

Spaniards, you are leaving your homeland
after fighting against the invasion:
walking through foreign lands
looking to the star of liberation
walking through foreign lands
looking to the star of liberation

Comrades, fallen in the fight,
who gave your blood for liberty
we swear to you return to our Spain
to avenge the affront of humanity
we swear to you return to our Spain
to avenge the affront of humanity

To you, Franco, traitor, vile assassin
of women and children, of the Spanish people,
You who opened the doors to fascism
will forever be accursed
ou who opened the doors to fascism
will forever be accursed

Españoles, salís de vuestra patria
después de haber luchado contra la invasión:
caminando por tierras extranjeras
mirando hacia la estrella de la liberación,
caminando por tierras extranjeras
mirando hacia la estrella de la liberación

Camaradas caídos en la lucha
que disteis vuestra sangre por la libertad
os juramos volver a nuestra España
para vengar la afrenta de la humanidad
os juramos volver a nuestra España
para vengar la afrenta de la humanidad

a ti Franco traidor vil asesino
de mujeres y niños del pueblo español
tú que abriste las puertas al fascismo
tendrás eternamente nuestra maldición
tú que abriste las puertas al fascismo
tendrás eternamente nuestra maldición
