For My Rallying OWS Peeps

I can’t go to the rally today in Times Square (@6pm, if anyone is interested). But my heart is, and always will be, with the 99%. I found this for you:

OWS Solidarity Forever! (Tune: “Battle Hymn of the Republic”) Originally by Ralph Chaplin, Revised by Susan Lee and Mercy Van Vlack of the NYC Metro Raging Grannies

Is there aught we hold in common with the greedy parasite,
Who would lash us into serfdom and would crush us with his might?
Is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?
Occupy Wall Street makes us strong!

Solidarity forever, Solidarity forever, Solidarity forever, Occupy Wall Street makes us strong!

They have taken untold millions that they never toiled to earn, But without our brain and muscle
not a single wheel can turn.
We can break their haughty power,
gain our freedom when we learn
Occupy Wall Street makes us strong!

Solidarity forever, Solidarity forever, Solidarity forever, Occupy Wall Street makes us strong!

In our hands is placed a power greater than their hoarded gold, Greater than the might of armies, magnified a thousand-fold.
We can bring to birth a new world from the ashes of the old Occupy Wall Street makes us strong!

Solidarity forever, Solidarity forever, Solidarity forever, Occupy Wall Street makes us strong! Occupy Everywhere -makes –us -strong!
