Lyrics: Anonymous.
Tune: “When Johnny Comes Marching Home.”


When the people have burst their chains at last (Hoorah! Hoorah!),
The golden age will have come to pass (Hoorah! Hoorah!).
No child will starve, and no soldier will die,
And we’ll all be free beneath the sky.
And no kings will rule when the people have burst their chains.
And no kings will rule when the people have burst their chains.

When the workers begin to organize (Hoorah! Hoorah!),
The boss will be in for a big surprise (Hoorah! Hoorah!).
With workers’ hearts and with workers’ hands,
We will seize the factories and the farms.
And we’ll all be free when the workers have organized.
And we’ll all be free when the workers have organized.
