Oh the working class, downtrodden poor masses!
Oh the working class!
We are in dawn hoping the sun shall rise
Hoping the sun shall rise and give life to our crops.
Oh this is the eternal dawn!
This dawn will never give birth to the sunrise.
Days, months, years, decade and two decades hoping the sun shall rise.
Oh this is the eternal dawn!

The eternal down.
We are waiting for the crocks to crow
The crocks never crow!
The crocks never crow!
They are already enjoying the sunlight, in the edge of the mountains where the working class can not reach.

Oh the working class, downtrodden poor masses!
You are on your own, you are alone!
A luta continua, A luta continua.
The sun must rise!
You will make the sun rise!

If you lay your hopes on crocks you will be forever hoping for the sun to rise!.
This is the eternal down!
