Bread and Roses

Martin Whelan
Lingua: Inglese



If we don’t have our dreams
What do we live for ?
If we don’t have our dreams,
What did James Connolly die for ?

Look up the sky is burning,
With blood that workers shed,
And we’ll carry on the battle,
For roses and bread.
Oh bread and roses,
Roses and bread,
We’ll carry on the battle,
For roses and bread.

He was born to organise,
That what James Larkin lived for,
For being a union man,
That’s what Joe Hill was killed for.

Look up the sky is burning,
With blood that workers shed,
And we’ll carry on the battle,
For roses and bread.
Oh bread and roses,
Roses and bread,
We’ll carry on the battle,
For roses and bread.rus

With dreams in solid steel,
That’s what Mandela lived for,
For dreaming of what might be,
That’s what Allende died for.
Look up the sky is burning,
With blood that workers shed,
And we’ll carry on the battle,
For roses and bread.
Oh bread and roses,
Roses and bread,
We’ll carry on the battle,
For roses and bread.

Let's dream that dream of dreams,
Of life without sorrow,
And maybe our dreams
Can build a new tomorrow.
