Song Of Paraguay

Song of beauty into the night

Welcome foreigner into our land

Our land of heroes

                             who fought valiently

Let us take you to our hearts

                                             that you will learn Guaraní!


Our women are beautiful

                                        though we are poor

Be a friend to us stranger

                                       share your heart with us

Understand our land where we work so hard

To live from our soil

                                 and adore our God




You can find gold of the soul

Music searing through the heart

The Jesuit harp and the rough guitar

And the voice of thick emotion and beauty


You can drink caña all night long

And absorb sweet dreams all the next day

You can watch the sluggish Río Paraguay

Slop and push its tropical way
