This song is also spelled: Santianna, Santy Anna, Santayana, Santiano, Santy Anno
O! Santiana gained the day,
And Santiana gained the day,
All across the plains of Mexico!
So heave her up, and away we’ll go,
Heave away, Santiana!
Heave her up, and away we’ll go
All on the plains of Mexico.
He gained the day at Molly-Del-Rey*,
And General Taylor ran away
All across the plains of Mexico. Refrain
All of his men were brave and true…
Every soldier brave and true… Refrain
Oh Santiana fought for fame…
And Santiana gained a name… Refrain
