Lafayette St. Players

PerformingDo You Hear the People Sing?

This will be the final performance at the March Against Monsanto, we invite you to learn the steps and join the performance! 

Instructions for participating in flash mob for “Do You Hear the People Sing?”

The song will be repeated a total of four times, learn the words and join in on singing it the with us on the first time and/or the second time through, then on the third time we will march down from wherever we are and be at the lead of the march, with the song being repeated one more time  [EVERYONE singing]  We will have a huge flag waving at the end of the first sing through and it will continue. It would be great if EVERYONE would learn the movements and words and start them in the audience as soon as they feel them.
The performers will be wearing jeans and a red, white or blue t-shirt….attendees are invited to do the same
The signal will be a performer saying into the microphone “everybody sing” at the beginning of the second go-round no matter how many are already singing with us.
Lyrics:
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of the people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!
Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free!
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!
Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will you stand up and take your chance?
The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France!
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!
