Viva la quinta brigada


Lyrics: Ebri Knight based on Christy Moore’s ’Viva la quinta brigada' and the poem 'The day is coming' by William Morris.
Music and arrangements: Ebri Knight

When the flowers are all in bloom
and the darkness claims to rule 
ain't no choice for us but crash
cause the spring is all over us.

When you hear the whistle blow
when you feel the storm approach 
let convictions melt the snow
gather 'round our blazing torch.

We fight against the force of evil.
Our life cries out beneath the sun.
From every corner we came sailing.
To keep the spring let's hold the gun.

Long live the fifth brigade!
The pledge that made them fight.
As they all joined the battle,
they're never gonna die.
Oh, the fifth brigade!
Against the fascist clan.
Our brotherhood of thunder.
They will not pass!

When the bells are tolling loud, 
and their music drives you mad
it's for you they're beating strong 
it does talk 'bout you that song.

When you hear the hunters bark, 
d'you recall your fellows’ words?
Ain't no choice for you but stand.
Raise your fist, defend your land!

We fight against the force of evil...

Long live the fifth brigade!...
