Lyrics
:

"Give me your hands
Reach for the sky
These hearts, these souls
Gimme a gimme a gimme your hands
A gimme your hands
And we go marching on
One, two, three, four"

Well there's a young boy standing 
He's staring at the world 
You know he can't control his anger 
You can see it in his eyes 
Gonna smash the window 
He's gonna tear down the walls 
Hey mister you don't understand it 
Take a look at it through my eyes 
These are the kids they're powerless 
So you tell them so 
These are the kids they're powerful 
Don't say you haven't been told 
And we'll go MARCHING ON 
Hear our sound hear our voice 
We're growing stronger 
And we'll go MARCHING ON 
We�re not alone now, we're keeping on 
We're MARCHING ON 

Take a walk round your city walls 
Before it all comes down 
Take a walk round any street 
You're gonna feel the stares of us all 
Can you feel it burning 
Shame is what it's called 
Just look at what you have created 
Think of all the people against you 
These are the people that made you 
When you said you cared for us all 
These are the people who�ll break you 
Get prepared for the fall 

And we'll go MARCHING ON 
Hear our sound hear that voice 
We're growing stronger 
And we'll go MARCHING ON 
We're not alone and we're keeping on
We're MARCHING ON 

We're the young who stand up 
We must never be silenced 
We've gotta speak up now
For all our sakes 
And lift our voices higher 
`Let's sing our song 
Keep on marching marching 
And never forget 
About the power on the right side 
Fights the power on the left 
We have got to stand together 
Forget the east and west 
'Cause there's another voice 
Crying in the ghetto 
Another mouth to feed 
Another heart beating in the ghetto 
Another soul to set free 
And we'll go MARCHING ON 
Hear our sound hear our voice 
We�re growing stronger 
And we'll go MARCHING ON 
We're not alone and were keeping on
We go MARCHING ON

I said
Marching, marching, marching 
on
Sing your voices
Marching, marching, marching on
Gimme your voices
Marching, marching, marching on
I said marching, marching, marching on

"Sing"
(Marching, marching, marching on)
Gimme your voices
(Marching, marching, marching on)
Lift your voices higher, higher
Sing out sing I said
Marching, marching, marching on (and on and on)
Marching, marching, marching on
Lift up, lift up your voices
Marching On
Lift up, lift up, lift up your voices
Lift up the song
Because our hearts must have the courage to keep on marching on
