Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías

Líder de tu pueblo Venezolano,
bandera roja al viento, esperanza de las masas,
progreso para la nación.
Chávez campana que despierta
América Latina.

Chávez y yo,
en la tierra de Simón Bolívar,
después de nuestros encarcelamientos
tu mano y la mía se estrecharon
uniendo el sueño de dos naciones.
Tu voz de Jaguar
entona tu alocución,

“El petróleo es nuestro,
el petróleo es de Venezuela
el petróleo es de los venezolanos”.

El pueblo te responde en las calles,
en las plazas, en los estadios, en el mar.
¡Chávez NO se va!  ¡Chávez se queda!
en la aurora de la esperanza
que vive en el corazón de tu pueblo.

¡Viva Chávez!
¡Viva Caracas!
¡Viva la revolución venezolana
¡Viva el pueblo venezolano!
¡Viva la nación bolivariana!

Alejandro Mujica Olea
