"Stand for the Blood-Red Banner" (karaoke)

"Stand for the Blood-Red Banner" (sheet music)

Stand for the blood-red banner,

Ye proletary folk.

Stand to the insurrection;

No more we'll wear the yoke.


Ye that are men be steadfast;

Remember Labor's woes.

Let courage rise with danger,

And votes to votes oppose.


Stand for the blood-red banner,

Ye soldiers of the right.

Be loyal to the Captain;

Fear not the hosts of night.


Votes are a thing most mighty;

O, let our mandate speed

Till every slum's abolished

And working men are freed.


Stand for the blood-red banner;

Be eager for the fray.

Forth, Toilers in class conflict

On each Election Day!


Children no more shall labor

In workshops dark and vile;

Nor women be dishonored

To add to mammon's pile.


Stand for the blood-red banner;

The strife will not be long.

This day the clash of battle;

The next, the victors' song.


Our ranks are quickly growing;

The masses shall be free.

And earth regenerated

Shall chant the victory.
