Who do you think you are
To teach us how to live?
Who do you think you are
To teach us how to die?
We don´t have your culture, your sins
We don´t have it... No!

Who do you think you are
To teach us how eat?
Who do you think you are
To teach us how to think?
We don´t want to dominate the world
We don´t want to… No!

Mari chi weu!
Diez veces venceremos!
Mari chi weu!
Ten times we´ll win!

Mari chi weu!
Diez veces venceremos!
Mari chi weu!
Leave the world in peace!

Mari chi weu!
Diez veces venceremos!
Mari chi weu!
Ten times we´ll win!

Mari chi weu!
Diez veces venceremos!
Mari chi weu!
Leave the world in peace!

Mari chi weu!
Diez veces venceremos!
Mari chi weu!
Diez veces venceremos!

    General CommentThis song is an obviusley critic to the EEUU, that is the look of that country outside him, a country with an obvius expansionist idea, like the europeans of S.XIX, with a stupid philosophy of the money, a stupid system called capitalism, live for win money, die for the same thing, eat in McDonals or something and discrimination, xenophopic ideas, no tolerance for another religions like the Islam, and obviusly, money, money and more money and zero importance of the "virtudes"* and the ecology.

    Sorry for the offensive words, but really that is the apparent reality, no that what you see in the TV, wars and conflicts of today are all for that way to think.

    *I don't know how translate this to english.

    General CommentAbout the name, Mari Chi Weu, that is a phrase in mapudungun, the language of the mapuches, the native inhabitants of the central and south Chile, I can talk more about that etnie, but this don't have matter with that page, ;).
    Well, Mari Chi Weu can be translate to Ten times we will win, or Diez veces venceremos in spanish.

    Another important thing is the imitation in the begin of the sound of two mapuche's musical instruments: the Trutruka an the Kultrun, but probably you cannot understand that because is very difficult to found them sound online, ;)

    This song have a video (hosted in youtube):
    youtube.com/…

    Well, that is all about that song.

    Good luck for all, ;)
