Song lyrics and English translation:

Esta gente tan valiente (These such brave people)
Ni común ni corriente (Neither common nor ordinary)
Va a Vencer (Will triumph)
Contra un virus tan malvado (Against a very evil virus)
Que a todos ha causado (That has cause everyone)
Un gran temer (Tremendous fear)

Porque son tan entrañables y (Because they are too beloved)
Demasiado incansables  (and far too tireless)
Pa perder  (To lose)

Y es un pueblo tan tan lindo (And they are such a beautiful town and people)
Y por eso yo les brindo (And that’s why I offer you)
Mi Canto a Nuevo Amanecer (My song for New Dawn)

Y proteger y proteger (And to protect and protect)
a Nuevo Amanecer  (The town of New Dawn)
Merecen nuestro apoyo Aldo (They deserve our support)
Y aunque no sea un gran rollo  (And though it won’t be a big roll)
Sí queremos proteger (Yes we want to protect)
A Nuevo Amanecer (The Town of New Dawn)
Esta gente tan valiente (These such brave people)
Ni común ni corriente (Neither common nor ordinary)
Va a Vencer (Will triumph)

Contra un virus tan malvado (Against a very evil virus)
Que a todos ha causado (That has caused everyone)
Un gran temer (Tremendous fear)

Porque son tan entrañables (Because they are too beloved)
Demasiado incansables  (And far too tireless)
Pa perder  (To lose)

Pero el trabajo solidario (But the work of solidarity)
