Lyrics

Well I’m on my way to heaven
We shall not be moved
On my way to heaven
We shall not be moved
Just like a tree, standing by the water
We shall not be moved

Chorus:
We– shall not, we shall not be moved
We– shall not, we shall not be moved
Just like a tree, standing by the water
We shall not be moved

On the road to freedom, we shall not be moved…

Chorus en Español:
No, no, no, no nos moveran!
No, no, no nos moveran!

Como un arbol firme junto al rio
No nos moveran

Unidos en la lucha, no nos moveran
Unidos en la lucha, no nos moveran
Como un arbol firme junto al rio
No nos moveran

Chorus en Español

Combined Chorus
