"Mexican Passion"

Text by Jose L. Hernandez

III. Jalisco Canta

I give thanks to my homeland for providing me her gift

that is the son of my mariachi that I sing with pride and with all of my heart!

Look at how far I have come, thanks to my tradition!

I have dressed up new sones with notes from heaven that fill my world with love,

I have dressed up new sones with notes from heaven that fill my world with love!

 

Ay ay ay ay Jalisco sings with passionate pride,

and from the "hot land" you hear the rhythm of her son!

 

Ay, this is the music of God!

That which was born in my land, my blessed land that fills my heart with pride!

I love my homeland! That is my one and only homeland!

And my music I give to you because I am The Mariachi! The Mariachi!

I am The Mariachi!

From my heart, Jalisco sings!

 

 

What my homeland has given me is my "Jalisco soul"

and a beautiful brown skin that glows like fire when I sing this song!

My life is like the river that opens into the Sea of God!

For this I give thanks to her, because I know that a river without water is a world without love,

for this I give thanks to her, because I know that a river without water is a world without love!

 

This is, is my world, my world of love!

The world of love!
