Lyrics

Manos de Mujeres

Mano fuerte va barriendo, pone leña en el fogón
Mano firme cuando escribe una carta de amor
Manos que tejen haciendo nudos
Manos que rezan, manos que dan
Manos que piden algún futuro
Pa` no morir en soledad, ay! ya!

Mano vieja que trabaja va enlazando algún telar
Mano esclava va aprendiendo a bailar su libertad
Manos que amasan curtiendo el hambre con lo que la tierra les da
Manos que abrazan a la esperanza de algún hijo que se va, ay! ya!

Manos de mujeres que han parido la verdad
Manos de colores aplaudiendo algún cantar. ay! ya!

Mano fuerte va barriendo, pone leña en el fogón
Mano firme cuando escribe una carta de amor
Manos que tiemblan, manos que sudan
Manos de tierra, maíz y sal
Manos que tocan dejando el alma
Manos de sangre, de viento y mar

Strong hand, the one that sweeps, that puts wood on the fire
Firm hand, the one that writes a letter of love
Hands that knit, making stitches
Hands that pray, hands that give
Hands that ask for some kind of future
Just not to die in solitude

Old hand, the one that works weaving a tapestry
Slave hand, the one that is learning to dance its freedom
Hands that knead, ending hunger using what the earth offers
Hands that hold on to the hope of a child that is leaving

Women’s hands that have delivered truth
Hands of many colors clapping to some song

Strong hand, the one that sweeps, that puts wood on the fire
Firm hand, the one that writes a letter of love
Hands that shake, hands that sweat
Hands of earth, corn and salt
Hands that touch, leaving their soul
Hands made with blood, wind and sea
