lyrics

Workers united ... never be defeated
Workers united ... will overcome

Workers united never be defeated
We are the people who makes things run

Workers united never be cheated
Protect your rights
They were hard fought and won

Stand up and fight for worker's autonomy
We are the engines of the economy
Those who are poor or in a minority
Shout let it out 'cos we want equality

You can make a difference to help fix the world
All you have to do is believe in yourself

We celebrate our great diversity
This is a strength of worker solidarity

We feel the pain of work place injury
Bosses who think our lives are cheap
Make them feel the pain of worker solidarity
Stand up unite don't turn your cheek

Fight for the right for fair compensation
Fight for the right for better education
Equality, dignity, justice for all
We want it now and we'll have it all

Power to the people not to corporations
Boot politicans who trash our nation
Fight for the right for self-determination
Help put an end to casualisation

Stand up and fight to return job security
Each to their need from each to their ability

Don't let them chip away our civil liberties
Fight with the power of workers unity

Stand up
We are the people

"The People united will never be defeated"
"Today, many thousands of workers stopping work
coming down to protest the fact that ordinary
people are not being given a say in their future."
