We will rise! by Dr Vole, Zayeet & Paula Boulton written for Côr Gobaith, Dec 2010-Jan 2011 recorded live at Transition Llambed's party, Lampeter, 26 Feb 2011 (C) 2011 Dr Vole, Zayeet & Paula Boulton
Chorus: We will rise, we will rise We will not accept those politicians' lies So come on get out and fight, unite against the right We will rise, we will rise!
"Cut it all" cries Cameron, "cut them off" cries Clegg "If you lose your livelihood, well, just go out and beg! One and all must share the pain, 'cause we have done the sums We're all in this together - oh, but not our banker chums!"
The government goes on about this Big Society It's just a way for them to drop responsibility Kick the poor off benefits, chuck social tenants out Privatising everything is what it's all about
The students and the workers march in solidarity No messing with our NHS and no tuition fee Public sector services are everybody's right And trying to sell our forests - that was just an act of spite!
Disabled people won't sit by while social justice dies We challenge all those "useless eaters", "scrounging cripples" lies We're working if we can, and if we can't, we need support The world is not accessible and that is not our fault!
We want a million climate jobs at this eleventh hour Let's have a Green New Deal and challenge corporations' power True power comes from wind and waves and marching till we win Nudge the ConDems where it hurts and put them in a spin
So come on women, workers, claimants, speak up one and all We're telling Thatcher's groupies that their empire's going to fall And though we may be kettled by police brutality We'll show them there is such a thing as Real Society!
