1 Some one must struggle that others may win;
Some one the world’s better day must bring in;
Some one the work that is hardest must do—
Somebody must, brother! shall it be you?

Refrain:
Somebody must! Somebody must!
Do then your duty, in God be your trust;
Somebody must! somebody must!
Live like a hero, for somebody must.

2 Some one must carry the weaker one’s load;
Some one must blaze through the forest a road;
Some one must lead o’er the path that is new—
Somebody must, brother! shall it be you? [Refrain]

3 Some one must stand in the thick of the fight;
Some one must strike for the brave and the right;
Some one must die for the pure and the true—
Somebody must, brother! shall it be you? [Refrain]
