The H-Bomb's Thunder

The H-Bomb's Thunder
The H-Bomb's Thunder

This song is sung at every demonstration against Nuclear Weapons. It is considered the National Anthem of C. N. D.*

* (C. N. D. - Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.)

Words by John Brunner

Tune: Miners' Lifeguard

 Don't you hear the H-bomb's thunder
 Echo like the crack of doom? 
 While they rend the skies asunder
 Fall-out makes the earth a tomb. 
 Do you want your homes to tumble, 
 Rise in smoke towards the sky? 
 Will you let your cities crumble, 
 Will you see your children die? 

 Chorus: Men and women, stand together. 
 Do not heed the men of war. 
 Make your minds up now or never,
 Ban the bomb for evermore. 

 Tell the leaders of the nations
 Make the whole wide world take heed: 
 Poison from the radiations
 Strikes at every race and creed. 
 Must you put mankind in danger, 
 Murder folk in distant lands, 
 Will you bring death to a stranger, 
 Have his blood upon your hands? 

 Shall we lay the world in ruin? 
 Only you can make the choice. 
 Stop and think of what you're doing.
 Join the march and raise your voice.
 Time is short; we must be speedy:
 We can see the hungry filled, 
 House the homeless, help the needy.
 Shall we blast, or shall we build?
