    SOLIDARITY FOREVER

    1. 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.

    cho: Solidarity forever, solidarity forever, solidarity forever
    For the Union makes us strong.

    2. Is there ought we hold in common
    With the greedy parasite?
    Who would lash us into serfdom
    And would crush us with his might,
    Is there anything left to us
    But to organize and fight?
    For the union makes us strong.

    3. It is we who ploughed the prairies,
    Built the cities where they trade,
    Dug the mines and built the workshops,
    Endless miles of railroad laid;
    Now we stand outcast and starving,
    `Mid the wonders we have made,
    But the Union makes us strong.

    4. All the world that`s owned by idle drones
    Is ours and ours alone,
    We have laid the wide foundations
    Built it skyward, stone by stone
    It is ours! Not to slave in
    But to master and to own
    While the union makes us strong.

    5. They have taken untold millions
    That they never toiled to earn,
    But without our brain and muscle
    Not a single wheel can turn;
    We can break their haughty power,
    Gain our freedom when we learn
    That the Union makes us strong.

    6. In our hands is placed a power,
    Greater than their hoarded gold,
    Greater than the might of atoms,
    Magnified a thousandfold;
    We can bring to birth a new world,
    From the ashes of the old
    For the Union makes us strong.

    Written January, 1915, by Ralph Chaplin
    From a book of songs put out by the AFL-CIO.

    Nimeuskiza. Kumbe ndiko ulitokea? Ni kama anthem ya chama cha wafanyikazi... Lakini, mbona un'fanana na anthem ya Man Utd?

    nimesoma taarifa zake vizuri. Asili yake ni wimbo fulani wa miaka ya 1800 ulioitwa The Battle Hymm of the Republic... Hiyo tone imeathiri anthem nyingi za soka zikiwemo Arbedeen, Manchester, Spurs na baadhi ya timu za America. Huwa unapigwa wakati wa kuapisha rais wa Marekani...
