lyrics

As it fell out upon one day, rich Div'rous made a feast,
And he invited all his friends, and gentry of the best.
Then Lazarus laid him down and down, and down at Dives’ door:
‘Some meat, some drink, brother Diverous, bestow upon the poor.’
So arouse your songs of freedom the world seems upside down
They scorn the poor man as a thief in Country & in Town

‘Thou art none of my brother, Lazarus, lying begging at my door;
No meat nor drink will I give thee, nor bestow upon the poor.’
Then Lazarus laid him down and down and down at Dive’s wall:
‘Some meat, some drink, brother Diverous, or with hunger starve I shall.’
So arouse your songs of freedom the world seems upside down
They scorn the poor man as a thief in Country & in Town

‘Thou art none of my brother, Lazarus, that lies begging at my wall;
No meat nor drink will I give thee, but with hunger starve you shall.’
Then Lazarus laid him down and down, and down at Dive’s gate:
‘Some meat, some drink, brother Diverous, for mercy's own sweet sake.’
So arouse your songs of freedom the world seems upside down
They scorn the poor man as a thief in Country & in Town

So arouse your songs of freedom the world seems upside down
They scorn the poor man as a thief in Country & in Town

Alas, un-altered are the times, despised are those in need
There’s hundreds who are starving for they can’t get food to eat
And if they go unto the rich to ask them for relief
They bang their door all in their face as if they were a thief
So arouse your songs of freedom the world seems upside down
They scorn the poor man as a thief in Country & in Town
