Remembering Comrade Lenin on his 151st birthday !

Written by

Comrade Lenin of Russia,

High in a marble tomb,

Move over, Comrade Lenin,

And give me room.


I am Ivan, the peasant,

Boots all muddy with soil.

I fought with you, Comrade Lenin.

Now I have finished my toil.


Comrade Lenin of Russia,

Alive in a marble tomb,

Move over, Comrade Lenin,

And make me room.


I am Chico, the Negro,

Cutting cane in the sun.

I lived for you, Comrade Lenin.

Now my work is done.


Comrade Lenin of Russia,

Honoured in a marble tomb,

Move over, Comrade Lenin,

And leave me room.


I am Chang from the foundries

On strike in the streets of Shanghai.

For the sake of the Revolution

I fight, I starve, I die.


Comrade Lenin of Russia

Speaks from the marble:

On guard with the workers forever

The world is our room!
