Song for the Occupations (“No More!”)

This is the day we say “no more,”
No more bailouts and no more war,
No more killin’ on foreign shores,
Today we say no more!

We’ve been workin’ for the day
When workin’ folk rise up and say:
Tax the rich and make them pay!
Today we say no more!

You bankers and you CEOs,
You used us all to make your dough.
Your time is up, you’ve got to go!
Today we say no more!

With our sweat and with our toil,
You’ve raped the earth, the sea and soil,
So you could sell your bloody spoils.
Today we say no more!

Today we pledge to occupy
This land you think that you can buy.
You’ve robbed us blind, you’ve bled us dry.
Today we say no more!

This is the day we all decide
Who is on the people’s side.
Today’s the day we turn the tide.
Today we say no more!

We’ve been cheated, we’ve been booed,
By the cops we’ve been abused.
Now we’re tired of bein’ screwed!
Today we say no more!

This is the day we take a stand,
In Washington and all the land,
And stand together hand in hand,
Today we say no more!
