MALE CHORUS
Vive la Commune De Paris
For the love of God
IN the name of freedom
For the crippled and the poor

The bells ring out the tambourine beats
The rise and fall of voices
The sound of marching feet
Signals the demise of the Capet dynasty

From Switzerland to defend the Tuileries
Remorseless as a rising tide
The san culottes prepare to die
Vive la Commune de Paris

And you'll get shafted

Vi......ve la Commune de Paris

Vive la, vive la, viva la Commune
Vive la, vive la, viva la Commune de Paris
