The four insurgent generals,
The four insurgent generals,
The four insurgent generals, Mamita mia,
Tis true they betrayed you,
Tis true they betrayed you.

But your courageous children,
But your courageous children,
But your courageous children, Mamita mia,
They did not disgrace you,
They did not disgrace you.

Madrid, your tears of sorrow,
Madrid, your tears of sorrow,
Madrid, your tears of sorrow, Mamita mia,
We shall avenge them,
We shall avenge them.

One Christmas holy evening,
One Christmas holy evening,
One Christmas holy evening, Mamita mia,
They’ll all be hanging,
They’ll all be hanging.
