"The Workers of the World Are Now Awaking" (karaoke)

"The Workers of the World Are Now Awaking" (sheet music)


The workers of the world are now awaking;
The earth is shaking with their mighty tread.
The master class in fear now is a-quaking.
The sword of Damocles hangs o'er their head.
The toilers in one union are uniting,
To overthrow their cruel master's reign.
In one union now, they all are fighting,
The product of their labor to retain.

It is a union grand. It is the best in the land.
For I can see, it's the best for me. So, come join the Industrial Band.
It stands for true liberty: The end of all wage slavery.
So working folk true, it is now up to you to join the Industrial Band.

The master class in fear has kept us shaking,
For long in bondage they have held us fast;
But the Industrial Workers are now making,
Will make our chains a relic of the past.
Industrial Unionism is now calling.
The toilers of the world, they hear its cry.
In line with the Industrial Workers they are falling,
By their principles to stand or fall and die.

It is a union grand. It is the best in the land.
For I can see, it's the best for me. So, come join the Industrial Band.
It stands for true liberty: The end of all wage slavery.
So working folk true, it is now up to you to join the Industrial Band.
