We love what we're fighting for, home boys home...

I believe the time is right,
I believe we won't go wrong;
Words like "can't" and "never"
They won't be around for long,
There's a rediscovered spirit here
Of people proud and strong.

'Cause we know what we're fighting for,
We believe in what we're fighting for;
We love what we're fighting for,
Home, boys, home!

We have lived in troubled times,
Five centuries and more;
We could see the problems coming,
Miles before they hit the shore;
Now, when others take and condescend,
We'll wink and nod no more.

'Cause we know what we're fighting for,
We believe in what we're fighting for;
We love what we're fighting for,
Home, boys, home!

We have made mistakes, it's true,
This ain't "once upon a time";
And "happy ever after" is a long way down the line,
But with poison tongues and attitudes,
And sharp and clever minds.

Oh, we know what we're fighting for,
We believe in what we're fighting for;
We love what we're fighting for,
Home, boys, home!

Half a million, side to side,
From the big land to the bay;
Join a peaceful revolution,
Let's make history today;
Will the "haves" we finally conquer thank,
The "have-not's" in their graves?

Oh, we know what we're fighting for,
We believe in what we're fighting for;
We love what we're fighting for,
Home, boys, home!

If you're near or if you're far,
Facts can guard your native coast;
Tell the naive patronizers the whole truth,
They need it most;
Just look 'em in the eye and say,
Our battle cry, our toast.

'Cause it's now or it's never,
We've been pulled apart forever;
If we'd only pull together,
Haul for home now, lend a hand!

'Cause we know what we're fighting for,
We believe in what we're fighting for;
We love what we're fighting for, home, boys, home!
We love what we're fighting for, home, boys, home!
