Just in case you forgot….”Solidarity Forever” Lyrics for #AusUnions

Solidarity Forever Lyrics

When the union's inspiration through the workers' blood shall run,
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun.
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one?
For the union makes us strong.

CHORUS:

Solidarity forever
Solidarity forever
Solidarity forever
For the union makes us strong.

They have taken untold millions that they never toiled to earn,
But without our brain and muscle not a single wheel could turn.
We can break their haughty power, gain our freedom when we learn
That the union makes us strong.

 

CHORUS

 

In our hands is placed a power greater than their hoarded gold,
Greater than the might of armies magnified a thousand fold.
We can bring to birth a new world from the ashes of the old,
For the union makes us strong.

 

CHORUS
