Election - the People's Right

While some on rights and some on wrongs
Prefer their own reflections
The people's right demand our song
The right of free elections.

     The people's right demands our song
     The right of free elections.

For government and order's sake,
And law's important sections,
Let's all stand by the ballot box,
For freedom of elections.

Each town and county's wealth and peace,
Its trade and all connections,
With science, arts must all increase,
By fair and free elections.

Then thwart the schemes of fighting lands
And traitor disaffections,
Stand up with willing heart and hands,
For fair and free elections.

Should enemies beset us round
Of foreign fierce complexions,
Undaunted we can stand our ground,
Upheld by free elections.

Elections are to make us laws
For trade, peace and protection,
Who fails to vote forsakes the cause
Of fair and free elections.
