"The Message from o'er the Sea" (karaoke)

"The Message from o'er the Sea" (sheet music)


One day as I sat pining,
A message of cheer came to me:
A light of revolt was shining,
On a country far over the sea,
The forces of rulers to sever
And the flag of the earth to unfold
To secure our freedom forever
And a world of beauty untold.

All hail to the Bolsheviki!
We will fight for our Class and be free.
A Kaiser, King or Czar,
No matter which you are,
You're nothing of interest to me.
If you don't like the red flag of Russia,
If you don't like the spirit so true,
Then just be like the cur in the story
And lick the hand that's robbing you.

We have lived in weak submission
Through ages of toil and despair
To comply with the plutes' ambition
With never a thought or a care.
An echo from Russia is sounding:
'Tis the chimes of a True Liberty;
It's a message for millions resounding
To throw off your chains and be free.

All hail to the Bolsheviki!
We will fight for our Class and be free.
A Kaiser, King or Czar,
No matter which you are,
You're nothing of interest to me.
If you don't like the red flag of Russia,
If you don't like the spirit so true,
Then just be like the cur in the story
And lick the hand that's robbing you.

All hail to the Bolsheviki!
We will fight for our Class and be free.
A Kaiser, King or Czar,
No matter which you are,
You're nothing of interest to me.
If you don't like the red flag of Russia,
If you don't like the spirit so true,
Then just be like the cur in the story
And lick the hand that's robbing you.
