lyrics

Everywhere that you go
the streets are full of strikes
boys and girls, everyone
are talking higher wages
boys and girls, everyone
are talking higher wages

Enough of breaking backs
and still having to borrow
call a strike comrades
let's free ourselves
call a strike comrades
let's free ourselves

Brothers and sisters, all gather round
together we are strong enough to bring the tsar down

Hey hey down with the police
Down with the autocracy in Russia
Hey Hey Daloy Politsey
Down with the autocracy in Russia

Sisters and brothers we can do this together
Bury Nikolai along with his mother

Hey hey down with the police
Down with the autocracy in Russia
Hey Hey Daloy Politsey
Down with the autocracy in Russia

Only yesterday, he pushed a garbage cart
and now he's become a capitalist

Hey hey down with the police
Down with the autocracy in Russia
Hey Hey Daloy Politsey
Down with the autocracy in Russia
