"Storm the Fort, Ye Knights" (karaoke)

"Storm the Fort, Ye Knights" (sheet music)


Toiling millions now are waking;

See them marching on;

All the tyrants now are shaking

Ere their pow'r is gone.

Storm the fort, ye Knights of Labor;

Battle for your cause;

Equal rights for every neighbor;

Down with tyrant laws!

 

Lazy drones steal all the honey

From hard labor's hives;

Banks control the nation's money

And destroy your lives.

Storm the fort, ye Knights of Labor;

Battle for your cause;

Equal rights for every neighbor;

Down with tyrant laws!

 

Do not load the workers' shoulders

With an unjust debt;

Do not let the rich bondholders

Live by blood and sweat.

Storm the fort, ye Knights of Labor;

Battle for your cause;

Equal rights for every neighbor;

Down with tyrant laws!

 

Why should those who fought for freedom

Wear old slav'ry's chains?

Working folk will quickly break them

When they use their brains.

Storm the fort, ye Knights of Labor;

Battle for your cause;

Equal rights for every neighbor;

Down with tyrant laws!
