English Transport Workers' Strike Song

We meet today in Freedom's cause,
And raise our voices high;
We'll join our hands in union strong,
To battle or to die.
Chorus:
Hold the fort for we are coming-
Union men, be strong.
Side by side we battle onward,
Victory will come.
2. Look, my Comrades, see the union
Banners waving high.
Reinforcements now appearing,
Victory is nigh.
Chorus:

3. See our numbers still increasing;
Hear the bugle blow.
By our union we shall triumph
Over every foe.
Chorus:

4. Fierce and long the battle rages,
But we will not fear.
Help will come whene'er it's needed,
Cheer, my Comrades, cheer.
Chorus:
