Chorus: "Goodbye," Autocracy,
Come in, Democracy,
The latch-string is swinging for you.
We're all anxious to meet you,
We'll march out to greet you,
And we'll follow your banner 'til tyrany's through.
So goodbye, Autocracy,
Come in, Democracy!
I'll tell you what we'll do;
We'll fight to the finish,
And never will give in,
To make this old planet
A good place to live in.
So Goodbye, Autocracy,
Come in, Democracy,
Democracy, we're for you!
Anitza: Love of mine, love of mine!
Your spell that caught me, happiness brought me,
Must I resign?
Love of mine, keep me thine.
My heart is bleeding; you know I am needing you,
Love of mine!
Here come the soldiers,
With a rum tum tum tum tum!
Here come the soldiers,
Ev'ry human heart's a drum.
Behold the great, big, strapping, glorious men!
Behold the fighting, scrapping, victorious men!
Here come the soldiers!
When the band begins to play,
Here come the soldiers!
There's a cue for "Hip, Hurray!"
Because we must cheer
Whenever they do appear.
Here come the soldiers of the king!
Chorus: Goodbye, Autocracy,
Come in, Democracy,
Democracy, we're for you!
