"When the Revolution Comes" (karaoke)

"When the Revolution Comes" (sheet music)


Come every honest lad and lass!

Too long we've been kept under

By rusty chains of fraud and fear:

We'll snap them all asunder.

 

When the revolution comes,

The Social Revolution,

It's coming fast, our turn at last:

The Social Revolution.

 

The knave who lives in idleness

By plundering his neighbor

Shall learn to use the pick and spade

And live by honest labor!

 

When the revolution comes,

The Social Revolution,

It's coming fast, our turn at last:

The Social Revolution.

 

That robbers' paction styled the Law

To frighten honest folks, sir;

We'll set ablaze and fumigate

The country with the smoke, sirs.

 

When the revolution comes,

The Social Revolution,

It's coming fast, our turn at last:

The Social Revolution.

 

The landlord and the cap'talist,

If you should wish to see 'em,

You'll have to take a holiday

And search in the museum.

 

When the revolution comes,

The Social Revolution,

It's coming fast, our turn at last:

The Social Revolution.

 

Then let us hail the coming day!

The glorious hope before us!

And with brave deeds anticipate

The good time of our chorus!

 

When the revolution comes,

The Social Revolution,

Then three cheers give of "Long, long live

The Social Revolution!"
