IN OUR SONGS(Music: Trad. Arr. R. Kavana, Lyrics: R. Kavana)

 

A song alone can’t change the world, that is true, that is true,

But we can sound a warning me and you.

Exploit others in our name, line your pockets without shame

And we will point the blame, in our songs, in our songs,

Yes, we will point the blame in our songs.

 

If you want to know a people know their songs, know their songs,

That’s where you’ll find their story right or wrong.

Our aim is self determination without war or consternation

We can rouse a sleeping nation with our songs, with our songs,

We can rouse a sleeping nation with our songs.

 

Let’s sing our songs together, sing out loud, sing out loud,

All you workers everywhere, sing out proud.

From our leaders we want justice, from our bosses honest wages,

Our voices bear true witness in our songs, in our songs,

Our voices bear true witness in our songs.

 

Stand together for the cause, stand up strong, stand up strong,

Sing We Shall Overcome, sing the song.

All are equal, none preferred, aspirations undeterred,

While our voices can be heard in our songs, in our songs,

Our voices can be heard in our songs.
