Sing along with Carlos Gardel
This song pays tribute to the May Revolution of 1810 that marked the birth of the future Republica Argentina. The date May 25 is celebrated as a national holiday in Argentina. Contrary to what some may think, it is not a tango or a milonga but a folk song of the Gato cancion genre.
CASTELLANO
ENGLISH
Ya el sol del veinticinco
viene asomando,
ya el sol del veinticinco
viene asomando
y su luz en el Plata
va reflejando,
y su luz en el Plata
va reflejando.

(recitado)
¿Oído? Ya lo anuncia la voz del cañón,
icemos al tope nuestro pabellón.

Y las campanas
mezclan sus alborotos
al de las dianas.

“¡Viva la Patria!” se oye
y el clamoreo,
“¡Viva la Patria!” se oye
y el clamoreo,
hace dentrar en la sangre
cierto hormigueo,
hace dentrar en la sangre
cierto hormigueo.

(recitado)
Al pueblo y al gauchaje
hace el entusiasmo temblar de coraje.

Y hasta parece
que la estatua ‘e Belgrano
se estremeciese.

Al blanco y al celeste
de tu bandera,
al blanco y al celeste
de tu bandera,
contempló victoriosa
la cordillera,
contempló victoriosa
la cordillera.

(recitado)
A traerte laureles cruzaron los Andes
San Martín, Las Heras, Soler y otros grandes.

Y ya, paisanos,
fueron libres los pueblos
americanos.

Already the sun of the twenty-fifth
is looming,
already the sun of the twenty-fifth
is hovering
and its light on the River Plate
is reflecting
and its light on the River Plate
is reflecting.

(Recited)
Heard? The voice of the cannon is already announcing,
let’s raise our flag to the top .

And the bells
mix their ringing
to the reveille’s sounds.”

Long live the motherland!” it’s heard
and the clamor,
‘Long live the motherland!” it’s heard
and the clamor,
gets into the blood
with a certain tingling,
gets into the blood
with a certain tingling.

(Recited)
To the people and the gauchos
enthusiasm makes them tremble with courage.

And it even seems
that the statue of Belgrano
shudders.

To the white and blue
of your flag
To the white and blue
of your flag
looked victorious
the mountain range,
looked victorious
the mountain range.

(Recited)
To bring you laurels they crossed the Andes
San Martín, Las Heras, Soler and other great ones.

And, then countrymen,
were free the people
of the Americas.
