Stand Up! Ye Workers
(Ethel Comer)

Stand up! Stand up!  Ye workers,
Stand up in all your might.
Unite beneath our banner,
For liberty and right.
From victory unto victory  -
This army sure will go,
To win the world for labor
And vanquish every foe.

Stand up! Stand up! Ye workers;
Stand up in every land,
Unite and fight for freedom
Put on the workers' armor
Which is the card of Red,
Then all the greedy tyrants
Will have to earn their bread.

Arouse! Arouse! Ye toilers,
The strife will not be long.
This day the noise of battle,
The next the victor's song.
All ye that slave for wages,
Stand up and break your chain:
Unite in ONE BIG UNION -
You've got a world to gain.

Tune: Stand Up for Jesus
First Published IWW Songbook, (23rd Edition, 1927)
