Transpose:
[Intro]
G  Bm  C  Am  D

[Verse 1]
G DThe lords of labour they plot together
Em BmTheir bankrupt schemes to keep us down.
C GTheir message to the working class
D G DIs to cringe before the rich man's frown.
G DThey say that it's in the whole country's interest
Em BmTo tighten our belts and make no demands.
C D GBut they speak for the class that exploits us and rules us
Am DAnd we must get them off our hands.
[Verse 2]
G DOur labour power is all we have
Em BmWe must sell it at the rich man's price
C GThis system is called wage slavery
D G DBut democracy sounds a bit more polite.
G DThey say that if our wage increases
Em BmThat prices will rise to compensate
C D GBut the only ones who receive compensation
Am DAre capitalist vampire who suck out our life.
[Chorus]
G Bm C DOppose all attempts to make the working class pay for the capitalist crisis.
G Bm C Am Am7 DOppose all attempts to make the working class pay for the capitalist crisis.
[Verse 3]
G DThe capitalists fight with one another
Em BmTo corner the market and divide up the world
C GTheir quest for maximum profit
D G DIs the cause of war and puts us on the dole.
G DTheir greed leads them into a crisis
Em BmWhich they try to resolve with a more fascist state
C D COur struggle's against the whole capitalist system
Am DSo strike at the fascists as well as the cuts.
[Chorus]
G Bm C DOppose all attempts to make the working class pay for the capitalist crisis.
G Bm C Am Am7 DOppose all attempts to make the working class pay for the capitalist crisis.
