Love Song About Bernie Sanders (In Spanish!)
A band called 'Grupo la Meta' made a song called 'El Quemazon' (which translates to 'the burning). The song is a tribute to Bernie Sanders. Not only does the song show a lot of love to Bernie, but it tells his story. The composer and vocalist of the song, Juve Quintana wrote the song because he felt that Sanders was not given enough exposure by the media.
Most of the band members are second-generation Mexican, living in California.

Translated Lyrics:

He’s the man with a vision
to better this country.
Running for president
but the rich don’t want him.
Bernie Sanders is his name.
Now you're going to feel his burn.
New York is the state where he was born.
Brooklyn where he grew up.
As kid he started noticing
the rich getting richer
and the poor working longer hours.
Still many don't make enough to survive.
He's the son of Immigrants
who came in search of better lives.
Working to succeed
like we all do every day.
We come here with the same dream:
Provide our families a better chance at life.
The rich and the media don't like him
and they’re scared that he can win.
He wants college to be free
so our children can progress.
He believes health care is for all.
Not a business, but a human right.
Years ago, in Chicago, he was arrested
for protesting against segregation.
He doesn’t care about the color of your skin
to him we are all children of God.
Many call him Robin Hood
others call him The Bern.
Fighting for the rights of the people
even law enforcement could not stop him.
He'll keep battling until he becomes
president of this nation.
Bernie Sanders is his name.
This is his corrido The Bern!
