Oh, Sacco, Sacco,

Oh, Nicola Sacco,

Oh, Sacco, Sacco,

I just want to sing your name.

 

Sacco, Sacco, Sacco,

Sacco, Sacco, oh, Sacco,

Nicola Sacco, Sacco,

I just want to sing your name.

 

Oh, Rosie, Rosie,

Oh, Miss Rosie Sacco,

Oh, Rosie, Rosie,

I just want to sing your name.

 

I never did see you, see you,

I never did get to meet you,

I just heard your story,

And I just want to sing your name.

 

Hey, hey, Bart Vanzetti,

Hey, hey, Bart Vanzetti,

You made speeches for the workers, workers,

Well, I just want to sing your name.

 

Hey, Judge Webster Thayer,

Ho, ho, Judge Webster Thayer,

Hey, hey old Judge Webster Thayer,

I don't want to sing your name.

 

Bart Vanzetti and Nicola Sacco,

Bart Vanzetti and Nicola Sacco,

Come here looking for the land of freedom,

I just want to sing your name.

 

Vanzetti sold fish around the Plymouth Harbor,

Sacco was a fact'ries' best shoe-cutter,

All of my sons and all of my daughters,

They're gonna help me sing your name.

 

Oh, Sacco, Sacco,

Hey, Bart Vanzetti,

Your wife and kids and all of your family,

I just want to sing your name.

 

Oh, Sacco, Vanzetti,

Hey, Sacco, Vanzetti,

Hey, Nicola Sacco, Bart Vanzetti,

I just want to sing your name.

 

Oh, oh, oh, ho, ho, ho,

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes,

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes,

Well, I just want to sing your name.
