Cyclists Forever (Draft 2)

Filed under: Solidarity,UCTW — Danimal @ 9:23 pm

Touched up old verses, tried to do the same for chorus, but it’s giving me trouble. Remember, cy-cling  and cy-clist. Once again, Battle Hym of The Republic FROM THE TOP!

When the union’s inspiration through the cyclist’s blood shall run,
There will be no power greater than our bikes beneath the sun;
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the lonely ride of one,
But the union makes us strong.

Solidarity through cycling,
Solidarity through cycling,
Solidarity through cycling,
For the union makes us strong

Is there aught we hold in common with the speedy parasite,
Who would run us off the freeway and would crush us in his flight?
Is there anything left to us but to organize and bike?
For the union makes us strong.

Solidarity through cycling,
Solidarity through cycling,
Solidarity through cycling,
For the union makes us strong

They are wasting untold barrels and never seem to learn,
That without a change of vision, their future will be burned
But we’ll free ourselves from oil, and claim what we have earned
For the union makes us strong.

Please help me out with more versus or a better chorus? So far it’s just a modified Solidarity Forever. I’d like to get more verses in there.
