sandinista – latin quarter lyrics

saw a movie, “top of the world”
but i found it didn’t lift me,
jimmy cagney’s mother died,
it didn’t move, it didn’t shift me

and santiago fell 10 years ago, or more
and it seems we’ve been falling ever since
and now there’s something stirring in managua
it’s got the power, it’s got the power to convince.

how we ever gonna thank you enough
you’ve shown us that the good can get tough
sandinista!

the future seems so far away, sometimes
without a guide and with no example
but your work, can take so many there and give
washington more than a sample.

how we ever gonna thank you enough
you’ve shown us that the good can get tough
sandinista!

if we could only brush away
the dust of 50 years
we’d be on a road in spain
with a white hot sun above
and all around are voices
other accents and other tongues
here to say that this republic
needs our arms, and it needs our love…

how we ever gonna thank you enough
you’ve shown us that the good can get tough
sandinista!
