Silverstein – La Marseillaise lyrics

Arise children of the fatherland
The day of glory has arrived
Against us tyranny
The Bloody standard is raised
The Bloody standard is raised
Do you hear howling of these ferocious soldiers
They 're coming right into our lives
To cut the throats of your sons and our women
In arms citizens Form your battalions
Let us March, let us march
Let this impure blood
Water our furrows
