Representative Text

1 Shall we license the sale of the poisonous drink,
Shall we lagalize sin, crime and woe?
Shall we vote to continue the curse of the land?
God help us at once to say no!

Refrain:
God help us at once to say no,
God help us at once to say no,
Shall we vote to continue the curse of the land,
God help us at once to say no!

2 Shall we open the door of the gilded saloon,
Shall we license the traffic so low,
Shall we give it our sanction in thought, word, or deed?
God help us at once to say no! [Refrain]

3 Shall we vote with the parties that dare not avow,
This vile institution must go,
Shall we suffer and wait, for the old parties’ sake?
God help us at once to say no! [Refrain]

4 Shall we vote and oppose the new party that stands
Fully pledged the saloon to o’erthrow,
Shall we stand in the way of its triumph complete?
God help us at once to say no! [Refrain]
