"We Shall Live" (karaoke)

"We Shall Live" (sheet music)


We shall live in that glad city

Where the spoiler ne'er shall spoil;

Where producers are respected,

Honors go to honest toil.

 

We shall live, we shall live,

We shall live in that glad city.

Parasites shall get no pity.

Commonwealth of happy toil!

 

We are building now that city.

Comrade workers build it strong.

Its foundations rest on justice.

Crumble now ye tow'rs of wrong.

 

We shall live, we shall live,

We shall live in that glad city.

Parasites shall get no pity.

Commonwealth of happy toil!

 

Scorn and chains shall greet the idler,

He who thrives by other's sweat.

Exploitation shall be ended;

What man makes that shall he get.

 

We shall live, we shall live,

We shall live in that glad city.

Parasites shall get no pity.

Commonwealth of happy toil!

 

Socialism is that city:

Revelation's dream fulfilled.

Life and beauty shall be wedded;

Gleefully, the earth be tilled.

 

We shall live, we shall live,

We shall live in that glad city.

Parasites shall get no pity.

Commonwealth of happy toil!
