All that they fought for is being destroyed

Do not just sit there, getting all annoyed,
Learn from the old – grey-haired, wise sage.
All that they fought for is being destroyed.

Millions of workers that once were employed
Building, making – lie idle. Stage by stage
Confidence shattered, despair unalloyed.

All the rights that our forefathers enjoyed,
NHS, council house, half-decent wage,
All that they fought for is being destroyed.

We can stop Con-Dem cuts. We can avoid
Sinking into despair, trapped in a cage.
Confidence shattered, despair unalloyed.

All our resources must soon be deployed
Don’t let it happen – fight, organise and rage.
All that they fought for is being destroyed.

Join together – protest, strike. Overjoyed
We must fix – rebuild, repair, assuage.
Confidence shattered, despair unnalloyed
All that they fought for is being destroyed.
