(by B. Brecht, M. Balin, M. Cummings)
Translated by H. R. Hays

People of the world together
Join to serve the common cause
So it feeds us all forever
See to it that it's now yours

Forward without forgetting
Where our strength can be seen now to be
When starving or when eating
It's forward not forgetting our solidarity

Black or white or brown or yellow
Leave your old disputes behind
Once you start talking to your fellow men
You'll soon be of one mind

If we want to make this certain
We'll need you and your support
It's yourselves you'll be deserting
If you rat on your own sort

Forward without forgetting
Where our strenght can be seen now to be
When starving or when eating
It's forward not forgetting our solidarity

All the gang of those who rule us
Hope our quarrels never stop
Helping them to split and fool us
Just so they can remain on top

Forward without forgetting
Till the concrete question is hurled
When Starving or when eating

Whose tomorrow
Is tomorrow
And whose world
Is the world
Solidarity
