Trotsky´s Red Army

Dagen till ära: en engelsk sång från ryska revolutionens dagar. Melodin är densamma som till den svenska Vi bygger landet.

Banker and boss hate the red soviet star
Gladly they build a new throne for the tsar
But from the north to the deep baltic sea
Trotsky's red army brings victory
So workers hold your rank
Stand fast and steady
For freedom raise your
Bayonets bright
For workers Russia
The Soviet Union
Get ready for the last great fight

Banker and boss hate the way workers stand
Shoulder to shoulder in every land
Though from your ranks your martyrs may fall
Labor united shall conquer all
Then hear the thunder
Of the toiling masses
All creeds and colors
Brain and brawn
United under
The socialist banner
Get ready for the last great fight

Banker and boss hate the red soviet star
Gladly they build a new throne for the tsar
But from the north to the deep baltic sea
Trotsky's red army brings victory
So workers hold your rank
Stand fast and steady
For freedom raise
your Bayonets bright
For workers Russia
The Soviet Union
Get ready for the last great fight.


En rysk version lät så här. Om det verkligen funnits en rysk version där Trotskijs namn nämndes vet jag inte. Det verkar finnas delade meningar om den saken.


Leo Trotskij 1918
