Lyrics[edit]

Spanish English
I

Maternal, centenaria y bravía
luchadora en mestiza batalla
guardan leyendas, los acordeones,
del Valle del Cacique Upar.

II
En sus calles de estirpe española
remembranzas de un pueblo que canta,
con sus historias, sus esperanzas,
oh señorial Valledupar.

CHORUS
¡Oh Ciudad de los Santos Reyes!
matriarcal grito soberano,
tradiciones que te defienden
orgullosa fue tu libertad.

III
Aborigen de casta muy valiente
de una raza labriega hasta la piel,
hoy nos quedan dos símbolos latentes,
el Arhuaco y el Kogui, muestra fiel.

IV
Hacia el norte domina la sierra
donde el alma del Valle se siente,
un sol ardiente baña tus tierras,
airoso el río Guatapurí.

V
En el campo tus hombres muy fuertes
con sus brazos de amor y confianza
es algo innato, labrando cantan,
en busca de su porvenir.

CHORUS
¡Oh Ciudad de los Santos Reyes!
matriarcal grito soberano,
tradiciones que te defienden
orgullosa fue tu libertad.

VI
Nuestro suelo es emporio de riqueza
es progreso, tenaz Valledupar
entonemos un himno de esperanza
que sea el grito del Valle del Cesar.

I

Maternal, centennial and brave
fighter in mixed battle
keeping legends, the accordions,
in the Valley of the Cacique Upar.

II
On its street of Spanish class
remembrances of the people that sings,
with their stories, their hopes,
oh lordly Valledupar.

CHORUS
¡Oh City of the holy kings!
matriarcal sovereign scream,
traditions that defend you
proud was your liberty.

III
Aborigins of brave cast
of a working class to the skin,
today two beeating symbols are left,
the Arhuaco and the Kogui, loyal prove.

IV
To the north the Sierra dominates
where the valley's soul is felt,
a brilliant sun showers your lands,
overshowing the Guatapuri river.

V
In your country your stroong men
with loving arms and confidence
is something unborn, labrating they sing,
in search of their future.

CHORUS
¡Oh City of the holy kings!
matriarcal sovereign scream,
traditions that defends you
proud was your liberty.

VI
Our land is an emporium of wealthiness
is progress, strong Valledupar
let's sing the hymn of hope
let that be the scream of the Valley of Cesar.
