Los Cuatro Generales                                                          

Los cuatro generales,                                                          
Los cuatro generales,                                                            
Los cuatro generales,                                                           
Mamita mia,                                                                             
Qu� se han alzado,                                                         
Qu� se han alzado.                                                        

Para la Nochebuena, (3x)                                     
Mamita mia,                                                                  
Ser�n ahorcados, (2x)                                             

Madrid, qu� bien resistes,                                      
Los bombarderos...                                                  

De las bombas se rien,                                          
Los Madrile�os...                                                       

Puente de los Franceses,                                                  
Nadie te pasa...                                       

Porque tus milicianos,                          
Que bien te guardan...            

 

The four insurgent generals,  

The four insurgent generals,  

The four insurgent generals. 

Mamita mia,

They have betrayed you,  

They have betrayed you.  

 

One Christmas holy evening,

Mamita mia,

They shall be hanging,   

Madrid, you wondrous city,

They want to take you...  

 

But your courageous children,    

They did not disgrace you...

 

Die Herren Generale, die Herren Generale,die Herren Generale,'
mamita mia hab`n uns verraten, mamita mia hab`n uns verraten.

 

 

Wer hat denn diese Herren

so schlecht beraten? - Sozialdemokraten!


Madrid, du wunderbare

dich wollten sie nehmen.

 


Doch deiner treuen Söhne

brauchst dich nicht zu schämen.

 


Und alle deine Tränen, 

die werden wir rächen.

 


Und alle unsre Knechtschaft,

die werden wir brechen

 

             

This video is dedicated to those
who defended Madrid bravely,
who were killed defending their republic,
who came to Spain to help defend democracy and fight against fascists,
who deserve to be honored officially and given a proper burial.
Special thanks to Rafael and Jamaica Joel for singing this song so beautifully:
