IWA Hymn Lyrics

RESISTANCE: A SONG OF QUOTES IN WOMEN’S STRUGGLES

Lyrics by Joi Barrios-Leblanc

Music by Tony Palis (Nov. 6, 2015)

INTRO:

STAND WITH ME, ALL MY SISTERS

FOR NO BATTLES ARE FOUGHT ALONE

HERE WE PLEDGE, OUR LIVES WE OFFER

HEART AND SOUL, AND FLESH AND BONE

IN THE FACTORIES AND OUR KITCHENS

WE LABOR LIKE THE MIDNIGHT SUN

TOIL THE FIELDS AND TEND THE CHILDREN

WOMEN’S WORK IS NEVER DONE

CHORUS:

FIGHT FOR JUSTICE IN THE WORKPLACE

GUARD THE RANKS THEY SEEK TO BLEED

LET OUR BODIES SING RESIS–TANCE

AS WE RAGE AGAINST IMPERIAL GREED!!!

(Instrumental)

BRIDGE:

LET OUR BODIES SING RESISTANCE

WHEN THEIR ARMIES COME

ALL DEFEND HEARTH, HOME, AND COUNTRY

WE SHALL NOT SUCCUMB

ONCE WE MARCHED FOR THE BALLOT

FOR BREAD AND ROSES ONCE WE FOUGHT

NO UPRISING IS EVER FORGOTTEN

THE STRUGGLE LIVES AND WE MARCH AGAIN!

(REPEAT CHORUS 2X)

CODA:

LET OUR BODIES SING RESISTANCE

AS WE RAGE AGAINST IMPERIAL GREED!!!

AS WE RAGE AGAINST IMPERIAL GREED!!!
