Dice are rolling, the knives are out
Would be presidents are all around
I don't say they mean harm
But they'd each give an arm
To see us six feet underground

It doesn't matter what those morons say
Our nation's leaders are a feeble crew
There's only twenty of them anyway
What is twenty next to millions
Who are looking to you?

All you have to do is sit and wait
Keeping out of everybody's way
We'll, you'll be handed power on a plate
When the ones who matter have their say
And with chaos installed
You can reluctantly agree to be called

There again we could be foolish not to quit while we're ahead
For distance lends enchantment and that is why
All exiles are distinguished, more important, they're not dead
I could find job satisfaction in Paraguay

This is crazy defeatist talk
Why commit political suicide, there's no risk
There's no call for any action at all
When you have unions on your side

A new Argentina
The chains of the masses untied
A new Argentina
The voice of the people cannot be denied

There is only one man who can lead any workers' regime
He lives for your problems, he shares your ideals and your dream
He supports you for he loves you
Understands you, is one of you
If not how could he love me?

A new Argentina
The worker's battle song
A new Argentina
The voice of the people rings out loud and long

Now I am a worker, I've suffered the way that you do
I've been unemployed and I've starved and I've hated it too
But I found my salvation in Peron, may the nation
Let him save them as he saved me

A new Argentina
A new age about to begin
A new Argentina
We face the world together and no dissent within

There again we could be foolish not to quit while we're ahead
I can see us many miles away inactive
Sipping cocktails on a terrace, taking breakfast in bed
Sleeping easy, doing nothing, it's attractive

Don't think I don't think like you, I often get those nightmares too
They always take some swallowing
Sometimes it's very difficult to keep momentum
If it's you that you are following
Don't close doors, keep an escape clause
Because we might lose the Big Apple

But would I have done what I did
If I hadn't thought, if I hadn't known
We would take the country

Peron has resigned from the army and this we avow
The descamisados are those he is marching with now
He supports you for he loves you
Understands you, is one of you
If not how could he love me?

A new Argentina
The chains of the masses untied
A new Argentina
The voice of the people cannot be and must not be denied

How annoying that they have to fight elections for their cause
The inconvenience having to get a majority
If normal methods of persuasion fail to win them applause
There are other ways of establishing authority

A new Argentina
The chains of the masses untied
A new Argentina
The voice of the people cannot be and will not be and must not be denied
