O, I heard a man in the street
Complaining of the taxes he must psy
For the guns, the planes and the Bomb,
And he's marching here along with us today.

Then follow the march and join us in the chorus
And sing so that everyone will know,
Ban the Bomb, end the war!
That's what this march is for,
To Trafalgar Square in London we will go.

O, I heard a woman in her home
Singing as she passed the time away,
O, she sang of happiness and peace
And she's singing here along with us today.

Then follow the march and join us in the chorus
And sing so that everyone will know,
Ban the Bomb, end the war!
That's what this march is for,
To Trafalgar Square in London we will go.

O, I heard the children in the school
Learning to recite the Golden Rule,
First it said, "Thou Shalt Not Slay."
So the children came to march with us today.

Then follow the march and join us in the chorus
And sing so that everyone will know,
Ban the Bomb, end the war!
That's what this march is for,
To Trafalgar Square in London we will go.

O, I heard the lawyer at the bar
And he said, "What we must have without delay
Is a law against the Bomb,"
And the lawyer's marching here with us today.

Then follow the march and join us in the chorus
And sing so that everyone will know,
Ban the Bomb, end the war!
That's what this march is for,
To Trafalgar Square in London we will go.

O, I saw the preacher in the church
As he opened up the Bible for to prey.
He declared that the good Jesus Christ
would have walked along the Aldermaston way.

Then follow the march and join us in the chorus
And sing so that everyone will know,
Ban the Bomb, end the war!
That's what this march is for,
To Trafalgar Square in London we will go.

O, I asked the singers why they sing,
I asked the musicians why they play,
O, we work for harmony,
That’s why we're marching here with you today.

Then follow the march and join us in the chorus
And sing so that everyone will know,
Ban the Bomb, end the war!
That's what this march is for,
To Trafalgar Square in London we will go.
