Solidarity Forever

When the Union's inspiration,
through the worker's blood shall run,
there can be no greater power
anywhere beneath the sun.
For what force could be weaker,
than the meager strength of One,
For the Union makes us Strong

Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever
For the Union Makes us strong

Well, have we ought in common,
with the greedy parasite,
who would lash us into serfdom,
or would crush us 'neath his might,
is there ought for us to do,
but to organize and fight,
For the Union makes us Strong

Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever
For the Union Makes us strong

It was we who ploughed the prairies,
Built the cities where they trade,
Dug the mines, built the workshops,
endless miles of railroad laid,
Now it's we who are cast asunder,
'midst the wonders we have made.
But the Union makes us Strong

Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever
For the Union Makes us strong

For all the world that's owned by idle drones,
is ours and ours alone,
We have laid the wide foundations,
built it skyward, stone by stone
It is ours not to slave in
But to master and to Own,
But the Union makes us Strong

Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever
For the Union Makes us strong

Now they have taken untold millions,
that they never toiled to earn,
but without our brain and muscle,
not a single wheel can turn,
We can break their haughty power,
Gain our freedom when we learn,
that the Union makes us Strong

Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever
For the Union Makes us strong

Well, Placed in our hands is a power,
greater than their hoarded gold,
greater than the strength of armies
magnified a thousand fold,
We can bring to birth a new world,
from the ashes of the old.
For the Union makes us Strong

Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever, Solidarity Forever
For the Union Makes us strong
