WORKERS UNITE!






THERE'S POWER IN A UNION



There is power in a factory, power in the land

Power in the hands of a worker

But it all amounts to nothing if together we don't stand

There is power in a Union



Now the lessons of the past were all learned with workers' blood

The mistakes of the bosses we must pay for

From the cities and the farmlands to trenches full of mud

War has always been the bosses' way, sir



The Union forever defending our rights

Down with the blackleg, all workers unite

With our brothers and our sisters from many far off lands

There is power in a Union



Now I long for the morning that they realise

Brutality and unjust laws can not defeat us

But who'll defend the workers who cannot organise

When the bosses send their lackeys out to cheat us?



Money speaks for money, the Devil for his own

Who comes to speak for the skin and the bone

What a comfort to the widow, a light to the child

There is power in a Union



The Union forever defending our rights

Down with the blackleg, all workers unite

With our brothers and our sisters together we will stand

There is power in a Union.
