Here are the lyrics in Spanish and English courtesy Los Padrotes Music:

Spanish version:

(Coro)

We are so proud to be
Yes we are, We are so proud to be (2x) Latinos!

Esto no es una cancion
esto es una peticion
pa los senadores en contra de una reforma
hasta con mil murallas buscaremos la forma de entrar
porque el latino nunca se conforma

No somos culpables que los gringos no trabajen
el calor latino causa fuego forestales
En Arizona preguntale a McCain
He is just mad cuz Latinos make it rain

No pueden soportan que nos quedemos con el canto
rezale a la virgen y al espiritu santo
que nos protega de la ley 1070
pa’ que el mundo vea que el latino representa en cualquier lao
no me quedo callao
prefiero morir de pie que vivir arrodillao
y aunque termine deportao
Aqui me quedo no me voy pa’ ningun lao

Hoy me voy de mojado
en busca de un mejor destino
sin mapa, ya yo me se el camino
levanta tu bandera orgulloso de ser latino
la minoria que domina en los Estados Unidos

(Coro)

Latino soy y orgulloso me siento
no me averguenza mi color ni mi acento
donde quiera que me paro represento
siempre contento
duro como el cemento

Sin pasaporte, sin una visa
hechamos pa’lante con calma sin prisa
empezamos lavando platos humildemente
ahora somos dueños de restaurante
ya son 40 millones de habitantes
si si, 40 millones de immigrantes
llegamos pa quedarnos
nadie va a sacarnos
ni la fuerza armada va a detenernos

ahora somos bilingues
Umm, como lo quieres en español o en ingles
si la vida te da limones buscate el tequila
con dinero o sin dinero igual se bacila

Queremos que nos traten con igualdad
no con palabras, con acciones de sinceridad
y con esta estrofa culmino
levanta tu bandera si eres orgulloso de ser latinos!

(Coro)

English version:

(Chorus)

Yes we are, we are so proud to be
Yes we are, We are so proud to be (2x) Latinos!

This is not a song but a petition
to the senators that are against a reform.
Even if you put up a thousand borders, we will find a way to cross over
because Latinos never give up.

It’s not our fault that the “Gringos” don’t work.
“Latino heat causes forest fires”
In Arizona, go ahead and ask McCain
He is just mad cuz Latinos make it rain.

They can’t stand we are taking over.
Pray to Virgin Mary and the Holy Spirit to protect us from the SB1070 Law.
In order to show the world that Latinos represent anywhere.
I won’t keep silent.
“It’s better to die upon your feet than to live upon your knees”
and if I end up deported, I will stay here, I won’t go anywhere.

Parting ways as wetback in search of a better destiny.
Without a map, I already know the way.
Raise your flags to show you are proud of being Latino.
The minority that dominates in the USA.

(Chorus)

Yes I’m Latino and proud.
I’m not ashamed of my accent or my skin color.
Wherever I stand I represent, always happy, harder than cement.

Without a passport. Without a visa.
We keep on going forward, no rush.
We started cleaning dishes humbly
but now we own restaurants.
We are now 40 million habitants.
Yeah, that’s right, 40 million immigrants.
We are here to stay.
Nobody is kicking us out.
Not even the army can stop us.

We are now bilingual.
umm, how do you want in English or Spanish?
If life gives you lemons, then bring the Tequila
With or without money, we have a good time.

We want to be treated as equals.
Not only with words but with sincere actions.
And with this last verse I end my petition
raise your flag if you are proud to be LATINO.

(Chorus)
