Song: Banker and Boss
Lyrics: unknown

Music:
Year: unknown
Genre:
Country: USA


Banker and boss hate the workers who stand,
Shoulder to shoulder in ev'ry land;
Though in the conflict our martyrs may fall,
Labor united will conquer all.

Then hear the thunder of toiling masses,
All creeds and colors, brain and brawn;
United under the Socialist banner,
Go marching forward to the dawn.

Not fear or fraud or a fever that fades,
Wins for the workers "the barricades".
Only a movement courageous and sane.
Freedom and plenty and peace can gain.
This song was originally posted on protestsonglyrics.net
Then hear the thunder of toiling masses,
All creeds and colors, brain and brawn;
United under the Socialist banner,
Go marching forward, then hear the dawn.
