lyrics

1, 2, 3, 4, the unemployed are more and more
factories shut down last year
closed their doors and left us here
machines lie cold, covered with dust
months pass, they begin to rust
we march on along this road
unemployed out in the cold
unemployed out in the cold

1, 2, 3, 4, the unemployed are more and more
without clothes and without home
make our bead of earth and loam
running out of food to eat
we're out of bread and out of meat
water precious, tastes like wine
drink it down for now we're fine
drink it down for now we're fine

1, 2 ,3, 4, the unemployed are more and more
for many years we've slaved in vain
suffered for the bosses' gain
we built cities and countries
but not for you and not for me
comrades, what did we get back
but hunger, eviction, and the sack
hunger, eviction, and the sack

1, 2, 3, 4, this is what we're fighting for
the unemployed march hand in hand
singing out across the land
that the working class will have its day
in a world that we fought to free
unemployment, shame, and greed:
we will all make history
and we will all make history
