The Hymn of the Citizens

Fife and drum go Hum dee dum,

The marching citizens draw their guns

Their words, their airs, their country farms

Did get sold by the county Bar…

Hum dee dum,

Hum dee dumb.

 

We wage this revolution with our words

Not a bullet we will incur

We shall march in our battle lines

With these words and verse so spry…

Hum dee dum,

Hum dee dumb.

 

If a martyr we shall make

To speak our words and masticate

That violence spreads in silent wakes

Hum dee dum

Hum dee dumb.

 

I shall not e’er throw a stone

If I shall die all alone

I shall not ever throw a stone

For my words are mortar bombs

Hum dee dum,

Hum dee dumb.

 

Wage a revolution wise

That men in flames, they do die

While I have sung my battle cries

For the wasted men who die

Hum dee dum,

Hum dee dumb.

 

We might have our first president

A woman good with righteousness

She might give us what we need

A stitch, a bone and well hemmed sleeves

Hum dee dum,

Hum dee dumb.

 

But the ghosts they testify

That with the awful costs they cry,

That they should give a man his rights

When a woman ought to win the fight,

Hum dee dum,

Hum dee dumb.

 

Trump, I say, is not the cost

He is not the one who robbed us all

It is not Warren nor congress’ cauc…

It is all the specious laws we wrought,

That by liberty’s woes they cause,

Hum dee dum,

Hum dee dumb.

 

So I sing this verse or two

Of revolution with words couth

That if a woman should not be right

But a man should win the fight,

Hum dee dum,

Hum dee dumb.
