Mi Gente

Mi gente ¡Ustedes!
Lo más grande de este mundo
Siempre me hacen sentir
Un orgullo profundo

Los llamé ¡vengan conmigo
No me preguntaron dónde
Orgullo tengo de ustedes
Mi gente siempre responde

Vinieron todos para oirme guarachar
Pero como soy de ustedes
Yo los invitaré a cantar
Conmigo sí van a bailar
Yo los invitaré a gozar conmigo sí

Que cante mi gente
