THE INTERNATIONALE

Arise you starvelings from your slumbers!
Arise you prisoners of want!
For reason in revolt now thunders,
And a better age shall dawn
Now away with all your superstitions,
Servile masses arise! arise!
We`ll change forthwith the old conditions
And spurn the dust to win the prize.

Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!
Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!

No saviors from on high deliver,
No trust we have in prince or peer;
Our own right hand the chains must shiver.
Chains of hatred, greed and fear.
'Ere the thieves will out with their booty
And to all give a happier lot,
Each at his forge must do his duty
And strike the iron while it's hot!

Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!
Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!

Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!
Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!

Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!
Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!

We're tricked by laws and regulations,
Our wicked masters strip us to the bone.
The rich enjoy the wealth of nations,
But the poor can't sell their own.
Long have we in vile bondage languished,
Yet we're equal one and all
No rights but duties for the vanquished
We claim our rights for duties done.

Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!
Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!

The kings of mines and ships and railways,
Resplendent in their vulgar pride,
Have plied their task to exploit always
Those whose labor they've 'ere decried.
Great the spoil they hold in their coffers,
To be spent on themselves alone;
Someday we'll seize it in spite of scoffers,
And know that we have got our own.

Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!
Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!

These kings defile us with their powder,
We want no war within the land;
Let soldiers strike for peace call louder,
Lay down arms and join hand in hand.
Should these vile monsters still determine.
Heroes to make us in despite,
They'll know full soon the kind of vemin
Our bullets hit in this lost fight.

Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!
Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!

We peasants, artisans and others
Enrollees among the sons of toil
Let's claim the earth henceforth for brothers,
Drive the indolent from the soil!
On our flesh too long has fed the raven,
We've too long been the vulture's prey.
But now fare well the spirit craven,
The dawn brings in a brighter day!

Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!
Then come comrades rally!
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
unites the human race!
THE INTERNATIONALE

Arise ye pris'ners of starvation
Arise ye wretched of the earth
For justice thunders condemnation
A better world's in birth!
No more tradition's chains shall bind us
Arise, ye slaves, no more in thrall;
The earth shall rise on new foundations
We have been naught we shall be all.

'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union [1]
shall be the human race.
'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union*
shall be the human race.

We want no condescending saviors
to rule us from their judgement hall
We workers ask not for their favors
Let us consult for all.
To make the theif disgorge his booty
To free the spirit from its cell
We must ourselves decide our duty
We must decide and do it well.

'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union
shall be the human race.
'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union
shall be the human race.

The law oppresses us and tricks us,
the wage slave system drains our blood;
The rich are free from obligation,
The laws the poor delude.
Too long we've languished in subjection,
Equality has other laws;
"No rights," says she "without their duties,
No claims on equals without cause."

'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union
shall be the human race.
'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union
shall be the human race.

Behold them seated in their glory
The kings of mine and rail and soil!
What have you read in all their story,
But how they plundered toil?
Fruits of the workers' toil are buried
In strongholds of the idle few
In working for their restitution
the men will only claim their due.

'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union
shall be the human race.
'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union
shall be the human race.

We toilers from all fields united
Join hand in hand with all who work;
The earth belongs to us, the workers,
No room here for the shirk.
How many on our flesh have fattened!
But if the norsome birds of prey
Shall vanish from the sky some morning
The blessed sunlight then will stay.

'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union
shall be the human race.
'Tis the final conflict
Let each stand in his place
The International Union
shall be the human race.

*In some versions: The International Soviet.
