"The Proletariat" (karaoke)

"The Proletariat" (sheet music)


You work with hammer and with axe,

Weave the wool and spin the flax.

From the many spools you spin,

Say, my people, what you win.

 

Cling, clang, cling, clang,

Sings the hammer his mighty song;

Cling, clang, cling, clang,

Burst the chains and free the throng.

 

You mine the iron and the tin,

Sow the seed then gather in,

Bring to tables vessels fine,

Full of food and rarest wine.

 

Cling, clang, cling, clang,

Sings the hammer his mighty song;

Cling, clang, cling, clang,

Burst the chains and free the throng.

 

You gather treasures for the few,

Precious jewels, but none for you,

And from out your toil and pain,

See, you weld yourself a chain.

 

Cling, clang, cling, clang,

Sings the hammer his mighty song;

Cling, clang, cling, clang,

Burst the chains and free the throng.

 

Man of labor, but awake,

With your strength, these fetters break.

If you will it, they shall see,

Your mighty hands have set you free.

 

Cling, clang, cling, clang,

Sings the hammer his mighty song;

Cling, clang, cling, clang,

Burst the chains and free the throng.
