The song was released in the year 1980, at Luna Park for a Serú Girán concert. On December 26, 1981, when Seru played at the Coliseo theater, Garcia introduced this song saying "Well, now I'll play a song ... I'm asked for it a lot ... and I'm going to play it ...", so it is proved that a year before its release, the song already had some degree of popularity. This version appears on the album "Yo no quiero volverme tan loco", published in 2000, is sung at a higher pitch (A), while the original version is in G.

Nace una flor, todos los días sale el sol
De vez en cuando escuchas aquella voz
Cómo de pan, gustosa de cantar
En los aleros de mi mente con las chicharras
Pero a la vez existe un transformador
Que te consume lo mejor que tenés
Te tira atrás, te pide más y más
Y llega un punto en que no querés

Mamá la libertad
Siempre la llevarás
Dentro del corazón
Te pueden corromper
Te puedes olvidar
Pero ella siempre está

Ayer soñé con los hambrientos, los locos
Los que se fueron, los que están en prisión
Hoy desperté cantando esta canción 
Que ya fue escrita haré tiempo atrás
Es necesario cantar de nuevo
Una vez más
