The World Will Know lyrics

Newsies - The World Will Know
//Jack//
Pulitzer and Hearst, they think we're nothin'!
Are we nothin'?
//Newsies//
No!
//Jack// (sung)
Pulitzer and Hearst they think hey got us.
Do they got us?
//Newsies//
NO!
//Jack//
Even though we ain't got hats or badges,
We're a union just by sayin' so!
And the world will know!
What's it gonna take to stop the wagons?
Are we ready?
//Newsies//
YAH!
//Jack//
What's it gonna take to stop the scabbers?
Can we do it?
//Newsies//
YAEH!
//Jack//
We'll do what we gotta do until we break the will of mighty Bill and Joe!
//Newsies//
And the World will know!
And the journal too!
Mister Hearst and Pulitzer have we got news for you!
Now the world will hear
What we've got to say!
We've been hawkin' headlines but we're makin' 'em today!
And our ranks will grow!
//Crutchy//
And we'll kick their rear!
//Newsies//
And the world will know that we've been here!
//Jack//
When the circulation bell starts ringing, will we hear it?
//Newsies//
NO!
//Jack//
What if the Delancys come out swingin'?
Will we hear it?
//Newsies//
No!
When you got a hundred voices singin',
Who can hear a lousy whistle blow?
And the World will know
That this ain't no game
That we got a ton of rotten fruit and perfect aim
So they gave their word
But it ain't worth beans
Now they're gonna see what 'stop the presses' really means
And the day has come
And the time is now
And the fear is gone
//Boots//
And our name is Mud...
//Newsies//
And the strike is on
//Boots//
And I can't stand blood...
//Newsies//
And the world will know!
//Jack//
Pulitzer may own the world but he don't own us!
//Newsies//
Pulitzer may own the world but he don't own us!
//Jack//
Pulitzer may crack the whip but he won't whip us!
//Newsies, split into two groups at the end//
Pulitzer may crack the whip but he won't whip us!
And the world will know
And the world will learn
And the world will wonder how we made the tables turn
And the world will see
That we had to choose
That the things we do today will be tomorrow's news
And the old will fall
And the young stand tall
And the time is now
((And the winds will blow...))
And our ranks will grow
((And grow...))
And grow
((And so the))
//All together//
The world will feel the fire and finally know!
