Orator Hunt

 

Orator Hunt stands waiting to speak

Manchester massed, patient to hear

Militia in place, swords at the ready

Platform sways in a cold, cold breeze

 

Horses are charging, people stampeded

Crimson streams on St Peter’s Field

Orator Hunt will never be silenced

His speech will echo through centuries

 

Gather again to fight all oppression

Gather again my comrades and friends

Gather again for peace and for freedom

Gather again for Orator Hunt

 

Gather again to fight all oppression

Gather again my comrades and friends

Gather again for peace and for freedom

Gather again for Orator Hunt
