Internationalists - Mick Talbot, Paul Weller

    If you believe you have an equal share
    In the whole wide world and all it bears
    An' that your share is no less or more than
    Your fellow sisters and brother man
    Then take this knowledge and with it insist
    Declare yourself - an internationalist!
    If you lay no blame at the feet of next door
    An' realise this struggle is also yours
    An' that without the strength of us altogether
    The world as it stands will remain forever
    Then take this challenge and make it exist!
    Rise up as - an internationalist!

    If your eyes see deeper than the colour of skin
    Then you must also see we are the same within
    An' the rights you expect are the rights of all
    Now it's up to you to lead the call
    That liberty must come at the top of the list
    Stand proud as - an internationalist!

    If you see the mistake in having bosses at all
    You will also see how they all must fall
    For under this system there is no such thing
    As the Democracy our leaders would have us sing
    No time for lies now as only truth must persist
    Rise up now and declare yourself - an internationalist!
