Verse:
If you love a song of free - dom;  Sing the Cu - ca - ra - cha proud - ly;
Some must go where oth - ers lead -'em,   Fol - low me and sing it loud - ly!
All the life and love and laugh - ter,  Lin - ger in this reb - el tune;
Sing it for the things you're af - ter,  Un - der - neath the sun and moon.

La Cu - ca - ra - cha,  La Cu - ca - ra - cha,  Heart and soul of mex - i - co!
La Cu - ca - ra - cha,  La Cu - ca - ra - cha,  Sing it high and sing it low.
La Cu - ca - ra - cha,  La Cu - ca - ra - cha,  Song of fight - ing and ro - mance!
La Cu - ca - ra - cha,  La Cu - ca - ra - cha,  Now a march and now a dance.
