Remember the heroes who gave their lives for you
Remember two men whose souls were beautiful
Remember how they worked to help workers be free
Remember Sacco and Vanzetti.

They framed them for a crime that they did not commit
And killed them for their beliefs and for their politics
They manufactured evidence and used the death penalty
Remember Sacco and Vanzetti.

The press whipped up hysteria and the FBI harassed
And the President of Harvard declared the verdict “just”
But locked behind the bars for seven years of uncertainty
Were the workers named Sacco and Vanzetti.

The people raised a protest, but the government wished them dead
The rich hated Italians and also hated Reds
They were just immigrants who believed in anarchy
Remember Sacco and Vanzetti.

Around the world the rallies sought to stop the electricity
But the death row cells were guarded by machine guns and police
Their names now live as symbols of love for humanity
Remember Sacco and Vanzetti.
