Forward, Bolshevik

Nowe you ahve the power, Proletarian,
Your fist writes the law.
And the red flag flutters
On the building of the town Soviet.1
 
Thus forward, forward Bolshevik!
Against hunger, dirt and blood!
For Soviet and Republic!
Death to the Whites2 and the lice brood!
 
Forward, forward, forward, Bolshevik!
Against hunger, dirt and blood!
For Soviet and Republic!
Death to the Whites and the White lice brood!
 
But you are only the master of the house
Fighter with the red star,
Once every louse is crushed,
Which serves the old master.
 
Thus forward, forward Bolshevik!
...
 
Fight, win, dare everything
Must the Revolution!
Must crush the Reaction
And the Intervention.3
 
Thus forward, forward Bolshevik!
