LYRICS:

Lo dicen los danzantes
lo dicen los abuelxs
lo digo Nezahualcoyotl
y los temazcaleros

Lo dicen los del norte
lo dicen los del sur
el águila y el condor,
y el colibrí azul

Venimos a la vida
venimos a soñar
venimos a cantar
venimos a danzar

Venimos a la vida
nomas de pasadita
solo un instante aqui
madre tierra bendita

***

Dejemos al menos flores
dejemos al menos cantos
Dejemos al menos flores
dejemos al menos cantos

Hagamos alabanzas
hagamos nuestras danzas
Dejemos al menos flores
dejemos al menos cantos

Como fugaz estrella
como la flor más bella
como un sútil suspiro
de sublime pajarillo

Venimos a la vida
nomas de pasadita
solo un instante aqui
madre tierra bendita

The medicine dancers say it
the grandparents say it
Nezahualcoyotl said it
and those that do sacred sweats

The ones from the north say it
the ones from the south say it
the eagle and the condor
and the blue hummingbird

We come to live
we come to dream
we come to sing
we come to dance

We come to live
just here on a short journey
just here for an instant
on sacred Mother Earth

***

We leave (at least) flowers
we leave (at least) songs
we leave (at least) flowers
we leave (at least) songs

We sing our sacred songs
we dance our sacred dances
we leave (at least) flowers
we leave (at least) songs

Like shooting stars
like the most beautiful flower
like a subtle breath
of a sublime little bird

We come to live
just here on a short journey
just here for an instant
on sacred Mother Earth
