‘Viva Obama 2008’ is a Damn Good Song

by

This is not an endorsement of the candidate. It’s an endorsement of the campaign song. And “Viva Obama 2008” might be one of the catchiest campaign songs since Frank Sinatra changed the “High Hopes” lyrics for JFK in 1960.

If you’re ever in the Oxnard area in California, stop by and see the Mariachi Aguilas De Mexico. They play brunch at Ruby’s Cafe every Sunday.

English translation of the “Viva Obama 2008” lyrics after the jump.

“Viva Obama 2008”

To the candidate who is Barack Obama
I sing this corrido with all my soul
He was born humble without pretension
He began in the streets of Chicago
Working to achieve a vision
To protect the working people
And bring us all together in this great nation
Viva Obama! Viva Obama!
Families united and safe and even with a health care
plan
Viva Obama! Viva Obama!
A candidate fighting for our nation
It doesn’t matter if you’re from San Antonio
It doesn’t matter if you’re from Corpus Christi
From Dallas, from the Valley, from Houston or from El
Paso
What matters is that we vote for Obama
Because his struggle is also our struggle, and today
we urgently need a change
Let’s unite with our great friend
Viva Obama! Viva Obama!
Families united and safe and even with a health care
plan
Viva Obama! Viva Obama!
A candidate fighting for our nation
