"We Are More American" Lyrics Translate - Multilingual translation community. Lyrics translations from-to English, Greek, Spanish, Turkish, Romanian, Arabic and others. They have shouted at me a thousand times I should go back to my country. Because theres no room for me here. I want to remind the gringos: I didnt cross the border, the border crossed to me. America was born free, but men divided it. They marked a line so that I jump it. And they can call me invader. And thats a very frequent mistake. They took from us eight states. Whos then the invader? Im a foreigner in my own land. And I didnt come here to cause you trouble. Im a hard-working man. And if history isnt lying. The powerful nation settled here, in the glory. Among brave warriors, Indians of two continents mixed with Spaniards. And if we take centuries into account. We are more American. We are more American than the children of the Anglo-Saxons. They got from us without money the waters of the Río Grande. And they took from us Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado. Also California and Nevada were taken away. Utah was not enough, so they took Wyoming as well. Im the blood of the Indian. Im Latin American, Im mestizo. We are made of all colours. And of all trades. And if we take into account centuries. even if it hurts our neighbours. We are more American. Than all of the gringos.
