We Will Not Go Quietly

lyrics

We will not go quietly into the night
We will not go quietly into the night
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not be bullied and pushed around
We will resist and stand our ground
We will not obey, we will not behave
We will not acquiesce and be their slaves
We will not shut our mouths we will not sit still
While their armies colonise and kill
And while still we have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not live our life on our knees
We will not let them do to us as they please
And while we still have the will to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not go quietly into the night
We will not go quietly into the night
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will refuse to lick their boots
We will object and we will dispute
We will not be scabs and sell our souls
We will not be censored or be controlled
We will not be courteous or be polite
We will not regret or be contrite
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not just gently fade away
We will not turn our heads and look the other way
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not be mild and we will not be meek
We will not just accept and turn the other cheek
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not prostrate before a king
We will not genuflect or kiss a ring
We will not become indifferent and cynical
We will not compromise our principles
If they force us to retreat, we’ll return to the attack
If they throw us to the wolves we’ll return with the pack
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not accept that might makes right
We will not be timid and run away in fright
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not go quietly into the night
We will not go quietly into the night
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not just gently fade away
We will not turn our heads and look the other way
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night

We will not go quietly into the night
We will not go quietly into the night
And while we still have the strength to fight
We will not go quietly into the night
