We Shall Not Be Moved (2) We shall not, we shall not be moved We shall not, we shall not be moved Just like a tree that's standing by the river We shall not be moved. XXX is our leader, we shall not be moved Black and white together, we shall not be moved etc. etc. Probably the king of "zipper songs", this parody of a gospel hymn has been used as a rallying song for almost every union,every demonstration and most political groups for over a half-century. My personal favorite dates a schism in the American Communist Party in the 1940's when they sang: Browder (Earl) is our leader, he must be removed Browder is our leader, he must be removed Just like a tree that's standing in the highway, He must be removed.RG RG APR99
