CHORUS. Air. 1. But tell the knaves we are not slaves, And slav'ry talks Are free to talk alone. Alto. 2. Rise, tell the knaves we are not slaves, And morning call, I see the break of day!" Tenor 3. Then tell the knaves we are not slaves, And wrought the curse, The cure shall sweep away. Bass. 4. We'll teach the knaves we are not slaves, And of the West Shall be no more profaned.

          5.  And tell the knaves, we are not slaves, And heart to heart, Forget, forgive, unite!
