We Shall Not Be Moved (2)

     We shall not, we shall not be moved
     We shall not, we shall not be moved
     Just like a tree that's standing by the river
     We shall not be moved.

XXX is our leader, we shall not be moved

Black and white together, we shall not be moved

etc. etc.
Probably the king of "zipper songs", this parody of a gospel hymn has
been used as a rallying song for almost every union,every demonstration and
most political groups for over a half-century. My personal favorite dates
a schism in the American Communist Party in the 1940's when they sang:

Browder (Earl) is our leader, he must be removed
Browder is our leader, he must be removed
Just like a tree that's standing in the highway,
He must be removed.RG
